Top 5 Wheelchair Accessible Places to Visit This Summer

 

It feels like summer is finally here. Have you planned your holiday yet? Whether you are looking for an unforgettable vacation filled with jaw-dropping scenery and cultural attractions or a beach holiday, Handiscover has you covered. Here are the top picks of wheelchair friendly places.

 

1.    Barcelona, Spain 

Barcelona is widely regarded as one of the most accessible cities in Europe. The public transportation is very accessible. All the buses, including tour buses, are equipped with a ramp, and many of the metro stations have ramps or elevators. Getting around is never an issue. 

What has made Barcelona even more attractive is the accessibility at famous sightseeing places. From Gothic Quarter, Sagrada Familia to Casa Batlló, there are a lot of things to see, and most of them are wheelchair friendly. And even though Park Güell is not fully accessible; you can still enjoy an eyeful of the breathtaking architecture from the street. 

Barcelona also, has tons of beautiful and accessible beaches. Nova Icaria is one of them, with accessible wooden walkways leading down to the water, with beach wheelchair, so you can enjoy the sea! Just like many other beaches in Barcelona, it definitely has accessible restrooms.

2. Corinth Greece

Another must-go destination is Corinth. From sightseeing at an ancient Greek town to shopping at the local tourist market and sunbathing at the beach, Corinth has it all. 

If you have to pick the top things-to-do in Corinth, it must be sitting on the beach and soaking up the sun! And the best option for you is Sirens Resort. The entire resort is connected with ramps that allow you to wheel over the gardens and the beach with ease. And the most fantastic part of this lovely resort is that it has direct walkways to the sea! So you will have easy access from your room to the ocean. 

The resort is easily accessible from Athens international airport, and you can order wheelchair accessible taxis via the resort.

When talking about accessible places in the United Kingdom, we cannot leave out Dorset. Not quite like other places recommended here, Dorset is a place for nature and wildlife explorations.
