We will have arrived into Rome on the evening of May 30th. Just myself and my 11 year old son. He has issues with his knees/legs so excessive walking is something I want to limit, especially on the days we are visiting the Colosseum and also the Vatican.
Our first full day on the thursday 31st May, is at his choice, the day we are visiting the Colosseum.
We are booked in to the Underground and 3rd tier tour at 940am
We are staying in an apartment on Vicolo Del Fico nr Piazza Navona.
My question is ~ (sorry for the length but wanted to give info lol)
I understand according to google, its about a 30 min walk over to the Colosseum, and while this is nice, I want to avoid that walk so that we can spend the day walking at the Colosseum / Forum / Palantine ~ this is all we have planned so far for the day, so thinking of jumping on a bus or whatever form of public transport would get us over there.
Can someone please advise, the best route for us to take and where the best place to get on is?
I've had a quick look at the atac website but am struggling to get it to show pictures for some odd reason.
Also, we are having the tour at 940am and will wander around afterwards, from here which is our best bet for the right order to wander around at the Forum and Palantine Hill in terms of limiting the amount of walking? We will just be wandering around here . . .and will at some point want to grab some quick lunch between one of the places ~
(thinking we may come back in the morning of our second day to look around Trajans Market area if we don't feel like walking around in the afternoon)
We are not overly Museum people and churches don't particularly appeal either, so we are happy to wander around in the area we are in, but if I can limit the amount of walking to get to these places that would be even better (and will avoid too much leg pain to enable us to do our "walking around" day on saturday)
Thanks so much, in advance to anyone who can help
Kind regards, Kat x
