Accessible Venice

Veduta aerea di Piazza San Marco

Venice is a unique city not only for its artistic richness and natural environment but also for its particular morphology. The city is made up of 121 islets linked by 435 bridges, suggesting that the city is difficult to move about in and enjoy not only for people with reduced mobility but also for the elderly carrying their shopping, parents pushing a pram and visitors with their luggage.

In fact, thanks to an effective public transport policy and measures implemented down the years by the City Council, the accessibility situation is much more satisfying than you might imagine. The absense of car traffic makes it a friendly and enjoyable city for all.
In order to valorise this opportunity and enable the greatest possible number of disabled people to visit the city, Venice City Council has launched a vast communication and public awareness campaign. The aim is to make the information and opportunities as widely known as possible.
