Access for travelers with disabilities:
With its 435 bridges Venice may seem like an unreachable destination for people with disabilities, but fortunately this is not the case. The city is accessible to mothers with strollers, to the elderly, to tourists with suitcases and to visitors in wheelchairs. Therefore, Venice Music Project has also increased its accessibility with a ramp at the main entrance of St. George’s Anglican Church.
How to reach us:
The jetties for all public transportation are accessible to people with disabilities. The main 1 and 2 lines on the Grand Canal can accommodate up to 4 wheelchairs at the same time. Furthermore, Actv and the city of Venice have a reduced fare of €1.50 reserved to people in wheelchairs while the chaperon rides for free. Once the ticket is validated it can be used for 75 minutes on all the ACTV boat lines (excluding Alilaguna, Actv 16, 19 and Casinò lines).
