Accessibility Description

I gave the Highlights of Cinque Terre Accessible Shore Excursion a 3 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because the entire route is step-free and fairly flat. This tour uses an accessible van to easily navigate between the different cities.  It did not receive a higher rating because Cinque Terre poses many challenges for disabled visitors including hilly terrain, stairs into most sights, and a limited amount of accessible venues, restaurants and toilets. Your tour guide is experienced in navigating the areas with disabled clients.

This tour uses an accessible van with a ramp or lift to pick you up in La Spezia and transport you between the Cinque Terre cities.

On this accessible tour, your tour guide will lead you using the most accessible tour routes possible. The walking/rolling portions of the tour are completely step-free.

Some areas have an incline/are slightly hilly but the surfaces here are smooth.

Along the way, your tour guide will make sure to include accessible restroom stops. Some public accessible restrooms have grab bars and sufficient space for wheelchairs.
