Italy is not especially accessible to the blind or wheelchair bound and special needs travelers may find life in Rome, Florence and Venice challenging. Sidewalks can be narrow and uneven while the lack of parking often leads locals to leave cars in unorthodox places. The situation in Rome is however gradually improving. All museums are now accessible and most of the city can be reached with relative ease. The Vatican museums in particular are simple to navigate and provide tactile tours. Most subway stations are equipped with elevators, braille maps and raised floor trails for safely getting from entrance to platform.
