ACCESSIBLE TRAVEL

Disabled people do go to Greece, but you have to know that most hotels, museums and ancient sites are not wheelchair accessible. This is due in part to the uneven terrain of much of the country, which is a challenge even for the able-bodied people, with its abundance of stones, rocks and marbles (which can get extremely slippery).

Visually or hearing impaired people will not find much help in Greece as the current infrastructure has not seriously tackled their needs yet.

Still, you can find accommodations suitable for wheelchair users by checking the ‘Facilities for disabled guests‘ option in your Booking.com search criteria.
