Sicily was almost always off-limits to travelers with disabilities. However, new laws require establishments to have bathrooms and other areas in order to facilitate wheelchair access, and more and more B&Bs are refurbishing and keeping the needs of the differently abled in mind. Most buses are now equipped to accommodate a wheelchair, as are the newer trains, but many historical sites are still inaccessible, such as Erice or Segesta. On this website, wheelchair accessible sites will be pointed out.

We recommend that those with disabilities consider visiting Sicily on an organized tour specifically geared to provide assistance, which is vitally needed.
