Italy is adapting to accessible tourism quickly and efficiently , however, we still cannot say that it is the ideal model. There are several associations, in various regions and Italian cities, which help the disabled to make their trips comfortably and peacefully. For disabled people, Italian law recognizes people with disabilities in the same way as other countries. The list includes people with physical disabilities at all levels, people with visual impairments, people with mental disabilities, people with hearing impairments and people with mobility problems.

1) Accessibility for disabled people in monuments in Italy: FREE TICKETS
To avoid possible problems, when traveling, a person with some type of disability must bring a medical report and / or a doctor’s note on letterhead, with the doctor’s name, professional registration number, date and place of issue. Italian monuments offer free tickets for the disabled as well as for their companions. An excellent site to find out more about accessible tourism in Italy is Disabili.

Our Golden Tip
When you arrive at your destination, remember to ask for an accessibility map at the tourist information point. It will help you a lot; be sure!
2) Accessibility for disabled people in the monuments of Italy: WITH THE GUIDE DOG
People, unfortunately, the issue of the guide dog for people with visual impairments is still taboo in Italy and several places DO NOT ALLOW the pets to enter, so I advise against traveling with them, as you will end up being very limited.
One of the best sites for people with disabilities is Village For All. There you will find great options from several accessible locations. By regions / cities, you can access the following websites: Alto Adige for All, Milan for All and Venice Accessible. Read too How is accessibility in Venice for the disabled?
