Recognize that wonderful fountain on the right? Yep, it's the famouis Trevi Fountain. You sit in front of it or on the wall and throw a coin over your shoulder into the water.
It's supposed to insure your return to Rome. I tried it a few years ago and haven't got back there again--not yet--but I haven't given up the idea!

I came across this article that should be useful to any wheelchair users bound for Rome. Below is the opening paragraph of Mary Murphy-Hanson's article on wheelchair travel and accessibility in Rome.
Click on the link at the bottom for her really thorough guide.
Several years ago I became confined to a wheelchair for most of my day. Like most people in wheelchairs I have varying degrees of 'ability'. While I can climb a few stairs, or walk a short distance, the marathon that is known as touring Rome far exceeds my capabilities. I also couldn't give up my passion for Rome. So I went to Rome in a wheelchair. Conquering Rome in a wheelchair!
