    It's entirely up to you. If you don't like walking, don't. My father used to find a cafe in any town he was visiting for the first time, and say to my mother, "You go and walk around; I'll just sit here with a coffee and a cigarette. Come and get me when you've seen enough".

    When she came back, they would have a coffee and move on to a cafe maybe 15 or 20 minutes further on, then repeat.

    He didn't really care about tourist sites, and always maintained he saw more of the REAL city and its people by sitting there for an hour or two just watching them.

    There is a fairly easy to use subway system, that will take you to, or near most tourist attractions.

    There are also those hop on/ Hop off tourist buses that run all day.

    You can walk........if you are so inclined......but some of the distances can be far........especially in staggering heat.

    As much walking as you want to do. You can do lots with many things close to each other. Make use of Rome Public Transit get a day pass for unlimited rides.Can ride one stop if you cannot walk very far.

    Rome like many places has lots of stairs. You notice the ones you have to walk up.

    Good quality WALKING shoes for your personal comfort. No need for a fashion statement.

    If you are mobility challenged suggest you do a little research on the accessibility of some sites.Sites hundreds of years old were not designed for wheelchairs.

    Shall we all guess if you want to see lots of things for a few minutes each or plan to spend a few hours at each attraction you desire to explore.

    Hundreds of places you may want to explore.NO ONE can guess which ones you really want to visit in one afternoon. Over a long day of exploration or a week of wandering around to see what you discover down some side street.

    Your choice to walk from place to place near to each other or go for a ride and explore the places not in the city Centre.

    You can take the hop on, hop off bus to get to most of the main attractions. Once there, you'll need to do a bit of walking- around the Coloseum, for example. And like much of Europe, the things most worth seeing are at the top of a hill or of a flight of stairs.

    Supprisingly little. Most of the main sites to visit are all in close proximity around the old city centre and anywhere else can easily be reached by their excellent metro system which is only one line in a big loop around all the sites so you can just hop on and off for about 2 euros per trip or about 7 euros for the whole day.
