I started to add this to my previous thread about summer vs spring travel, then decided I was getting too off topic and should start a new thread.
I am looking at a trip to Rome (leaning towards April 2011) with a day trip to Pompeii. My 13 year old daughter would be with me, but my mother may want to come too. She is older and not very fit. Are there places to sit and rest in Pompeii? (She's not above sitting on rocks, tree stumps, etc in other locations. She can sit on the ground, but she needs help to get up.) She did walk around Paris and through the metro stations there, but we did slow down our travel. She did ok with trains in France but my sister and I carried her luggage on and off for her. Any suggestions on whether this would be a suitable trip for her? If not, she would probably be fine with staying in Rome for the day to rest. She took a day off from sightseeing to rest in Paris. Any suggestions for logistics with her?
Also, are there toilets readily available? Can you refill water bottles there?
