Travelability promotes accessibile tourism in Italy

Older tourist couple - Travelability pictureAge is no obstacle for traveling! This is Travelability's slogan, a new tourist formula born in Italy to ensure that all those who have special needs and want to travel with confidence, can do so. Tourism excellence and specialists of personal services set up a partnership to allow everyone to enjoy the holiday they have in mind, including people in need of assistance.

In preparation for the 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism, “we want that hospitality becomes the recognizable style of our beautiful region, Tuscany" said Fabio Cacioli, one of the founders of Travelability. "And the best way to enable this, is that all those who want to come to Tuscany can enjoy a holiday in total serenity". With this new model of tourism, if required, a team of professionals takes charge of the guest's medical record and ensures the necessary assistance throughout the day and the stay.

"Even the tours are tailored to the travelers’s wishes, in order to discover the secrets of the birthplace of Renaissance without having to go through exhausting trip journeys and times," says Mr Cacioli.
