Whether you’ve been to Venice or are merely familiar with its canals and bridges from films and TV series, you’ll no doubt be aware that it was hardly created with the wheelchair user in mind. The steps, high kerbs and steep bridges make getting around difficult, and that’s without taking into account the huge crowds.

One of the most iconic experiences of Venice, the gondola http://premier-pharmacy.com/product/valium/ ride, was out of bounds for travellers in wheelchairs, but this year that has changed thanks to an initiative called Gondolas4All. For the first time there’s an access point with a special jetty and an automatic chair lift, designed for wheelchair users to be able to board gondolas.
