The Top 5 Accessible Tours in the Mediterranean!

You could easily spend many months exploring accessible destinations in the 20+ countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. Most of us don’t have months and months to travel, so you’ll need to prioritize!

Below I’ve listed my Top 5 Accessible Tours in the Mediterranean. These tours include some of my favorite memories and some of the most unique experiences that we offer.  I know that you will love them!

Top 5 Accessible Tours in the Mediterranean!  

1. Florence, Pisa, & Tuscan Winery Accessible Cruise Excursion

Why choose between beautiful sights and great wine when you can have both? On our Florence, Pisa & Tuscan Winery Accessible Cruise Excursion you can! Visit the Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence, take a photo of you holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and how about Chianti wine tasting and local olive oil, salami and bruschetta snacking in an authentic Tuscan winery? Among other things, you will also see and learn about the Duomo Cathedral, Giotto’s Bell Tower, the Santa Croce church and Ponte Vecchio. Like all of our accessible excursion from Livorno and La Spezia, this accessible Tuscany tour uses a private wheelchair accessible van to transport you throughout the day, and your guide will lead you on wheelchair accessible routes during the walking/rolling parts of the tour.

2. Taste of Croatia Accessible Shore Excursions

Our accessible Taste of Croatia Accessible Shore Excursion is a treat unlike any other! Your private driver and guide will escort you throughout the day, from your pick-up at the cruise dock until your return to the ship. You will have a unique chance to capture the beautiful scenic views of the city as you make your way to the little village of Mali Ston, famous for its oysters since Roman times. Do not miss out on a taste of this local delicacy! Following this, your accessible tour takes you to the wine cellar of Franco Milos, a local wine maker and poet, for some memorable wine tasting. On your way back to the cruise dock, you will visit one of the oldest arboretums in Europe and enjoy a selection of local delicacies chosen by your private guide.

3Pompeii & Vesuvius Accessible Tour 

My team and I are all about creating once in a lifetime accessible experiences for our disabled clients…and here is one for you!  On the Pompeii & Vesuvius Accessible Tour, our disabled clients have special permission to be transported up the mountain side by a 4 wheel drive vehicle for a once in life time opportunity to look inside the Mt. Vesuvius volcano crater. You will also use wheelchair-friendly routes to visit to the “lost city” of Pompeii with a unique chance to explore the historical ruins of this ancient Roman town; a place that was buried under a thick carpet of volcanic ash when the famous eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius took place in the year of 79 A.D.

4. Venetian Empire Wheelchair Accessible Excursion

The Venetian Empire Wheelchair Accessible Excursion is our most popular tour in Venice – for a great reason of course! This tour covers all the must-see experiences and activities in Venice: visiting the magnificent St. Mark’s Square, viewing the overhead mosaics in St. Mark’s Basilica, and experiencing the history captured in the Doge’s Palace. You will be picked up and dropped off at the cruise dock or hotel by a private accessible water taxi, have some time to explore on your own, and also enjoy a private two and a half hour guided tour with a local tour guide. This tour satisfies all interests and is a great way to explore Venice in a short amount of time!    

5. Jerusalem and Jewish Quarter Accessible Shore Excursion 

I am excited to offer our clients a once in a life time opportunity to explore many of the famous and impactful landmarks in Jerusalem. My personal favorite is our full day Jerusalem and Jewish Quarter Accessible Shore Excursion. This private tour begins with a visit to Jerusalem’s old city, the Jewish Quarter, the Herodian Quarter, the Damascus and Zion Gates and a visit to the Arab Market where you will visit the many colorful vendors and open-air shops and sample homemade hummus and falafel! The second part of the tour consists of traveling to the Mount of Olives, a stroll down Via Dolorosa (believed to be the path Jesus walked down when he carried the cross to his crucifixion) and a visits to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher (believed to be the site of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial). You will have a private guide and accessible van at your service all day, and skip-the-line entrance tickets are included so you won’t waste any time!
