Naples & Herculaneum Handicap Driving Tour

Our Easiest Half-day Accessible Tour!

This handicap accessible Naples tour is easy for disabled tourists. Herculaneum disabled access is MUCH better than Pompeii disabled access and makes for an easy visit to the historical ruins buried in the 79 AD eruption.  Your tour guide will use wheelchair accessible paths to explain the daily life that occurred in the 2000 year old homes that your will enter.

The rest of this tour will include a drive around Naples where your tour guide will tell the stories behind the numerous monuments, palaces, forts, and piazzas built over the centuries.

During your driving tour of Naples, you’ll get out of the vehicle to visit Plebiscito Square, the San Carlo Opera House, the Castel Nuovo, the Royal Palace, the Galleria Umberto, and San Francesco di Paola Church (from the outside). The remainder of your Naples handicap driving tour will be spent driving around the Mergellina neighborhood, the Santa Lucia district, and viewing the Castel Dell’Ovo.

If you would like to add a visit to Pompeii to this tour, you can book the Accessible Pompeii & Herculaneum with Naples Driving Tour.

Accessibility Description

The Naples & Herculaneum Handicap Driving Tour has a 3 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it has step-free routes throughout the tour.  Tour participants will encounter some some cobblestones in Naples, but wheelchair users should have little problem.

This tour did not receive a higher accessibility rating because wheelchair users will need to be able to transfer into a car.  If you would like to stay in your wheelchair during the tour, you can choose one of the tours with a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating: the Naples & Sorrento Accessible Shore Excursion or the Pompeii & Amalfi Coast Accessible Tour.

The tour guide for your Naples & Herculaneum Handicap Driving Tour will be holding a sign with your name waiting for you at the accessible Naples cruise terminal.
