I dislocated my kneecap over 3 weeks ago and thought I'd be walking by now, but I'm not. :( My physical therapist doesn't give me very good odds for getting off the crutches soon. We'll be leaving for Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal in just 2 weeks, so at this point I'm starting to wonder what I'll actually be able to accomplish.
Is there any chance I'll be able to manage the Colosseum underground tour? I can navigate stairs slowly as long as there's a railing, and I can put a little weight on my bad leg and walk/hobble if I need to. (We already pre-booked the tickets, so not much can be done there if I can't go.)
What about the Duomo and Campanile in Florence - are there elevators or accessible ways to get up to the top?
Does anyone have recommendations for alternative ways to see the Rome and Florence while on crutches? Any favorite tours or ways to get around and take it all in when walking isn't possible?
Sadly, there's really no way we can cancel this trip - we didn't buy trip insurance - so I'm just trying to make the most of it while also not killing myself crutching around everywhere. Recommendations would certainly be appreciated. Thanks. :)
