Wheelchair friendly Bologna accessible tours

Bologna, for all its size and importance as the capital of its province and of Emilia-Romagna, is an easy city to visit with our wheelchair friendly Bologna accessible tours, and many visitors find it one of Italy's most appealing.

Bologna began life as an Etruscan town, and relics of the town's early phase of development can be seen in the town's archeology museum, the Museo Civico Archeologico.

Bologna is known in Italy as "La Dotta, La Rossa, La Grassa", which translates as "the Educated, the Red, the Fat".

"Educated" is for the city’s university, the oldest in Europe and home to such intellectual greats as the novelist Umberto Eco.

"Red" refers both to the red bricks that most of Bologna’s historic buildings and porticoes are made from, and to the city’s history of leftist politics.

"Fat", of course, is for Bologna’s culinary history, one based on creamy pasta sauces and rich meat dishes.

Touring Bologna

Bologna’s historic center has been beautifully maintained, its original Roman street plan still discernable today.

The best wheelchair friendly Bologna accessible tours way to explore the city is on wheelchair, taking time to admire the architecture and digest the wonderful food that you’re sure to find.

Bologna has always been an important crossroads between Northern and Southern Italy and between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean region.

Its history has been enriched by the influence of various cultures and people who have “marked” the territory and contributed to the economic and cultural development of the city over the centuries.

The compact medieval center has several beautiful churches, monuments, and civic buildings.

Bologna's Towers

Bologna's center is very striking with its medieval street plan, two historic towers "le due torri", the Torre Garisenda and Torre degli Asinelli.

The second one, with its 318ft., is the highest leaning tower in Italy, and warm colored buildings of red and orange.

The first thing you may notice is that most of the city is built under porticoes, which are covered walkways.

This is very convenient when you are stuck in the frequent rain or snow, but it can seem a bit darker when you don't see the sky.

The reason they are so common is because they were primarily offered as a tax incentive to estate developers because it was considered a service to the town.

Some of the richest families chose to build without porticoes to prove their status.

If you come to Bologna for one reason, let it be the food.

It is informally the culinary capital of Italy. The market in the city center is one of the largest in Europe and has a huge array of fresh cheeses, meats, fruits, vegetables, dairy and baked goods.

The best deals are the balsamic vinegar from nearby Modena and prosciutto from Parma.

Despite of it we ‘re thinking that disabled wheelchair users shouldn’t give up the passion of an holiday wheelchair friendly Bologna accessible tours and Accessible Italian Holiday provide a safe and a full accessible tours around it at previewed itineraries with adapted van specifically for disabled holiday.
