A series of useful links on how to getting around Venice
Venice is without doubt more accessible than you might think. All vaporetto landing stages are accessible to the disabled. Problems may, however, arise during particularly high tides when the access ramps may slope excessively.
In the vaporetto line 1 and 2, travelling along the Canal Grande, 4 wheelchairs at a time are admitted.
Boats on line LN connecting the city with Lido di Venezia and the Cavallino - Punta Sabbioni littoral are also accessible.
The Giracittà motorboat are equipped for only wheelchair at a time.
Two ferry boats operate between Tronchetto and Lido di Venezia, with lifts and toilets for the disabled.
A special price of 1,30 Euro is applied for wheelchair users and is comprehensive of the possible accompanying person's fare.
Groups can hire a vaporetto or motorboat complete with crew to organise excursions, conferences, etc. To book or for information, telephone the Hello Venezia call center at (+39) 041 24 24.
