Posts Tagged ‘barrier free Venice’

For anyone that has been to Venice without any advice or information about accessibility will know how frustrating it can be when you encounter bridges and other obstacles that make your experience annoying, frustrating or downright impossible.  After having spent a few days here myself I have found a few pieces of information that may assist disabled visitors.  Try this website where you can download maps and routes with no or few barriers – City of Venice.  Also, veniceforvisitors.com.

Also, please see my previous posts for some do’s and don’ts that may help you out but most important of all is to do your research beforehand.  Remember that you can plan all you like but surprises still happen – like the 24 hour water bus strike that really did cause problems for us and our plans to get from one area to another.

Ciao.
