Florence: Disabled Needs

City of Stone

Florence Disabled Needs

Many of the hotels in Florence do have wheelchair access, and it is always advisable to make enquiries with your choice of hotel before you book, as they all differ. This is a very busy city and most people get around on foot, as the centre is quite small in comparison to other European cities. Most of all the major museums, monuments, palazzos, churches, and parks are likely to be at least partially accessible and many restaurants and stores have a threshold step of anywhere between two to eight inches.

The proprietors are willing to lift your wheelchair, although they may require instructions on how to do it. Trattorias often have tables on the pavement, so you can enjoy your meals outdoors and you will avoid barriers, as well as being able to take in the stunning surroundings. A holiday for disabled people in Florence could be more accessible but things are always improving. Just make sure you ask all the questions you need to before booking.
