Background & Experiences Accessible Italy provided me with a trip that I will never forget. I am an individual that has great difficulty with walking and climbing stairs. We decided to go in early May of 2007 before the crowds arrived. My wife and son traveled with me on this custom made trip. We traveled to Rome, Florence, and Siena. Accessible Italy provided us with an accessible van and an English speaking driver. We were also provided with English speaking guides in Rome, Florence, and Siena.The guides were very knowledgable and courteous and always on time, as was the van and driver.They really took the guess work out of traveling. We were met at the airport in Rome and quickly taken to our hotel which was accessible and very close to the Colisseum. After several days in Rome, we traveled to Florence by accessible van through the Chianti region with a stop at an old castle for lunch. While in Florence we had a side trip to Siena which was just beautiful. Our guide took us through the city using the most level route because of the wheelchair.

I would reccomend Acessible Italy as they were just great in providing us with safe, timely, and courteous travel in Italy. The entire trip was planned via e-mail. All my questions were answered quickly and courteously.

I would also like to mention Laura, the person who was so helpful and courteous in planning our trip. She was very understanding regarding my problems with walking and climbing stairs. She also was very prompt in answering my questions and concerns about accessible travel. She was more than helpful and I probably could not have made this trip without her help.

This trip was huge success and was greatly enjoyed by my wife and son and of course, me.

Background & Experiences My husband Ken and I went to Italy for a 2-week honeymoon in June of 2004. We had no idea what the accommodations would be like as this was my first trip to Europe being wheelchair bound.
We email Silvia @ Accessible Italy and let her know our dates and what cities we wanted to go to. She emailed back with wonderful choices of hotels in every city for us to stay at.all that were accessible. It was hard deciding, but we let her know which ones we liked and that was it.. she made all the reservations and we were off to Italy. Upon arrival our transportation was waiting at the airport and drove us to a wonderful hotel in Sorrento. From there the rest of our trip was amazing. We traveled on to Rome, Florence, Greve-in Chianti, and Venice. I was intimidated at visiting all of the sites that I had wanted to see for years because I thought that it would never be accessible, but I was so surprised when they were. Can you believe that they have installed a modern elevator in the Coliseum?! Everyone at every hotel in every city was wonderful and would do anything if needed. We can't wait to go back! Thank you Silvia & Accessible Italy! Stephanie & Ken Wright

Hello, Debora,
I am in Ohio once again, and wanted to thank you and Miki for a fabulous trip.
Our driver Massimo and guide Elio in Rome were delightful. Elio is extremely knowledgable and humorous. We thoroughly enjoyed the day.
The van was perfect for our needs.

Luca, our Florence guide, was knowledgeable...The van was perfect again, despite the torrential rain in Pisa.
Thank you for helping make our cruise so special.

Dear Miki,
I spoke to Mrs. Young today, and they had a wonderful time in Italy. Thank you for all your help with planning this special trip.
Best regards,

Thank you for your assistance for my family to go to Ostia Antica. Sandro was very pleasant and helpful.
Thank you also for your assessment that I wouldn't need someone for Florence. It worked quite well there to use my scooter.
As you know, Venice was a totally different matter. If I'd had sooner help from my tour company, I would have gotten your assistance there as well.
I'm attaching a picture that I took of Sandro with my boys - Patrick and Andrew. If you can, please give him a copy.
Thanks again.
