Venice is splendid and unique. It is a concentration of architectural marvels and engineering challenges. (Just think the whole city rests on a forest of wooden pillars.) Obviously over the years its peculiarity has rendered it even more special and interesting. Yet there are those that because of its lack of cars, the many bridges (more than 400) have found it too “difficult” to appreciate especially for those with physical handicaps.
Fortunately, regardless of the ulterior structural complication of the city, you can find pleasant surprises with itineraries without limitations. First and foremost you need to find a structure that suits you or you’ll risk having an appropriate itinerary but an accommodation difficult to reach. We aren’t impartial but the apartments Ca’ delle Scimmia are perfect for these reasons: elevator and above all one vaporetto stop just a few meters away (Rialto Mercato.)
There is a Multilingual map created by the City of Venice that specifically highlights these special need itineraries, we suggest you check out multilanguage map. We will go over a few of the more interesting ones, keep in mind that all the bridges are equipped with a ramp that lead you to the San Marco area all the way to Sant’Elena along the Riva dei Schiavoni and the Sette Martiri that has accessible boardwalks set up.
Santi Giovanni e Paolo
An interesting four-sided campo that revolves around the imminent Santi Giovanni e Paolo Church, the hospital area that is incredibly beautiful. From the hospital waterbus stop (Ospedale) you can find the characteristic barbaria de le Tole, the Ex Scuola Grande di San Marco and enjoy a tranquil aperitif in one of the local bars like the historical Rosa Salva with an amazing view of the splendid Church.
We often talk about it: the Castello quarter reserves an infinite amount of pleasant surprises. Starting from the Sant’Elena waterbus stop or the Giardini. You can enjoy the beautiful trees and park area and visit the Biennale exhibiton while crossing the Characteristic Via Garibaldi up until the San Pietro di Castello church with wheelchair accessible bridges.
