Access for the disabled

by erinker74

I am considering a trip next summer to Tuscany and Rome with my mother, who is in a wheelchair. Can anyone tell me how accessible Tuscany and Rome are for the disabled? Also, how is a chair handled on the Eurorail?

Re: Access for the disabled

by qaminari

There is no such thing as "the Eurorail", if you would be in Italy what you would be using is Italian Railways (Trenitalia or FS, Ferrovia del Stato = State Railway). There are special places for wheelchair users on many, but possibly not all Italian trains, you have to book 24 hours in advance though, see http://www.tour-web.com/accessibleitaly/geninfos.html and http://rome.angloinfo.com/information/17/disabled.asp
As for Tuscany, it's quite a large province, however for Florence see http://www.tour-web.com/accessibleitaly/infofire.htm.

Ferrovie (plural) dello Stato, sorry.

i had a friend in a wheelchair visit me in rome - it's possible but not great

she could get into the colisseum by lift and into st peters by lift and by a very complicated arrangement into the sistine chapel

the good thing is you go to the head of any queue if you have a wheelchair

but cobblestones make it difficult - narrow pavements make it hard, sometimes there is a ramp down from a pavement but on the other side of the road there is not a ramp up and the traffic is hurtling towards you!

disabled toilets are very few and far between

it is possible but not simple

I know that the Uffizi in Florence has a lift in both wings - they do not advertise it but very nicely offered to take me up in the lift because I was limping quite badly from a knee injury. Overall access is pretty difficult - steps are everywhere.

Travel Tips for Florence

by fotografik

I strongly believe that the only way to get to know Florence is by walking through narrow streets. This city amazes me more and more each day even now because of the Art History course I am taking. taking photographs..it relives every moment you spent in the city and everything that you have seen and admired.

Fiesole by open top bus

by kirsty_lamb

The open top buses in Florence have two lines, A and B. A does the center and the real tourist tops in Florence. However with the same 20 Euro ticket you can go on line B. This goes out of florence to a small tow Fiesole.

You get to see the lovely Tuscan countryside (sit on the right of the bus facing front to get the best picture opportunities) and you can also stop off here.

Line B buses take an hour to complete the whole route and run every 45 minutes.

You also get to see Galileo's house and Michaelangelo's House

El mercado está desde por la mañana hasta las 7 de la tarde.

Smart car

by fgfi

A tiny two-seater is perfect to drive through narrow streets, and to park it just about anywhere you want.
Smart drivers are not very well considered by other drivers in Italy - they say they drive Smart as a motorbike -.
Anyway you will found lots of multi-coloured Smart in Florence.

If you want to experience Florence by car, or better if you want to visit the countryside, rental agencies are located around Borgo Ognissanti area.

Autoeurope (www.autoeurope.com) should be the cheapest one, but I'm not quite sure they have Smart car available.

Near Mercato Centrale

by Rodlipscombe about Trattoria Zaza

This is one of a group of restaurants around the Mercato Centrale.

There doesn't seem to be much to choose between them, but Zaza was perfectly acceptable without being outstanding.

Service is good and friendly.

Expect to pay around 30 Euros per person with wine.
