Città per tutti
The new accessibility map of Venice city centre and islands (October 2012) has been produced by the Città per tutti Service in collaboration with the EBA Department for the Elimination of Architectural Barriers.
The map summarises the greatest possible amount of practical information to help those with impaired mobility visit the city.
On one side there is an indication of the degree of accessibility of the various "insulae" determined by the absence/presence of public transport lines, colour differentiating areas which are completely accessible by vaporetto (green), accessible by motoscafo, by "facilitated" bridge or platform lift (light green) and areas that are not accessible by means of public transport (white).
To provide the most exhaustive possible answer to the questions of tourists and citizens wanting to visit the city, the back of the map contains all information on:
- Venice City Council and Venice Province information points;
- tourist terminals (railway station, airport, port);
- car parks;
- waterborne public transport stops;
- public toilets;
- bridges with facilities (platform lift, lift or low step).
The Comune of Venice decided to remove the stair lifts placed on the bridges as they cannot grant the service which they were aimed. at. Waiting for different solutions to restore the accessibility to the island, we invite you, where it is possible, to use the public transport on water "ACTV".
