I gave the Wheelchair Friendly Essential Cinque Terre Driving Tour 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.
