Overview

One of the world's great cities, Florence is visited by over six million tourists each year, yet, despite some recent improvements in accessibility, the "Cradle of the Renaissance" still presents significant barriers. Imagine lunch in an outdoor caf�, soaking up the warm September sun, where do you find an accessible restroom? Where to eat in a country whose main staples are bread, pizza, and pasta if you have an intolerance to wheat gluten? In which museums can you touch a Renaissance sculpture if you are visually impaired? Need to rent a wheelchair or find which museums have them on loan? Locate an accessible hotel with a roll-in shower? Find out if your power wheelchair will fit in the elevator of the Uffizi? Or discover the wheelchair-accessible paths in the Boboli Gardens? Reading A Guide to Accessible Florence, an indispensable resource written especially, but not only, for wheelchair or scooter users and slow walkers, will give you the answers to all these questions and to many more.
