Accessible Travel in Tuscany

Tuscany Disabled Access Review by John Sage

Article - Accessible Travel in Tuscany-707If you have already been to Italy and loved it (who doesn’t?), then you can easily spend a week visiting accessible destinations in Tuscany. Tuscany disabled access presents different challenges than other major Italian cities. Steep hills, cobblestones, no accessible public transportation, and steps into building can create challenges for disabled visitors. Don’t let that discourage you though. With the right planning, all of the Tuscany accessibility challenges can be circumvented and you can have a wonderful vacation!

Accessible Italian Cooking Class in Tuscany

Article - Accessible Travel in Tuscany-1431Tuscan cuisine is world famous. While you’re visiting Tuscany, why not learn cooking techniques from a local instructor? The Accessible Tuscany Cooking Class is held on a small farm using ingredients gathered locally. The chef will instruct you in preparing 4 to 5 courses…one or two appetizers, a pasta dish, a meat dish, and a desert. After the class is complete, you get to eat what you’ve created while enjoying local wine created on-site!

Accessible Food Tour in Siena Italy

Article - Accessible Travel in Tuscany-2068The Accessible Food Tour in Siena Italy uses wheelchair accessible routes to visit 5 Siena restaurants for a 5 course meal. Yum! Each of the restaurants has a flat or ramped entrance and an accessible restroom. All routes between the restaurants are step-free.

The Accessible Private Sightseeing Flight over Tuscany allows you to see mountains, valleys, and villages from the sky.
