Land and Sea Venice Wheelchair Accessible Tour

Description: C:\Users\John\Documents\1European WC travel 2\1 Reviews\!Venice\!OverviewPics\Excursions\Rialto\Venice Grand Canal Boat Tour1.jpgOne of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Venice, Italy, is now accessible to visitors in wheelchairs. Do not let the hundreds of bridges throughout this beautiful city keep you away – all of our Venice wheelchair tours avoid bridges and steps so you can enjoy a guided tour of this wonderful city. The Land and Sea Venice Wheelchair Accessible Tour allows disabled tourists to view as much of the city as possible in the shortest amount of time. You will be so amazed at all the things you see on this Venice wheelchair tour that you will never want to leave! Your tour guide can either meet you in the hotel lobby of one of the accessible hotels in St. Mark’s neighborhood, or at the exit for Doge’s Palace, Porta della Carta, to begin your tour. The tour starts with an hour-long visit to St. Mark’s Piazza where you can take in the beauty of the San Marco Basilica exterior and the San Marco column. Learn about the birth of the Renaissance in the beautiful outdoor classroom that is St. Mark’s Piazza. From there, this wheelchair tour in Venice moves to a trip on the Grand Canal using an accessible water taxi (shown in the photo on the right). Spend the last hour of the tour enjoying the unique ambience of the main waterway in Venice. See the sights that inspired some of the greatest painters that ever lived, including Monet, Canaletto and Turner. Float along the waters that aroused the talents of many famous writers, such as Ernest Hemingway, Henry James and Théophile Gautier. Do not let the fact that you are in a wheelchair make you miss out on the beauty of Venice, Italy. With Venice wheelchair tours, you can see the entire city the way it should be seen!
