AT Campania: the portal of accessible tourism in Campania

AT Campania logoWe’ve underlined many times how important it is, for the inclusion of people with a disability, increasing the availability of solutions ensuring an accessible tourism. This is the purpose of the AT Campania web portal as well, that’s been presented in these days in Naples by the local Rotary Club, together with Unione Italiana Ciechi (Italian Blind People Union). 

The goal of the AT Campania portal is to collect the accessible tourism solutions already active in the region and contributing, together with some collateral initiatives (seminars, conventions, events about accessible tourism) to boost the awareness of who works in this industry and of the entire community towards the need to create a world that can actually be suitable for all, regardless of any disability.

The AT Campania portal doesn’t just collect the info about accessibility of tourism structures and services active in the region  (museums, restaurants, monuments, etc.), but also enables the users, through a free registration, to leave public reviews about the listed structures, so that they can share their direct experience with the other visitors of the website.



So, the accomodations will have the chance to let their accessible tourism offer be known by a wider audience, including also that share of tourists who are, too often, still ignored by the market, due to the persistence of bias and architectonical and cultural barriers.

There are plenty of reasons to visit Campania: the cultural, archaeological and environmental heritage of this region is very wide and able to satisfy everyone’s needs and tastes. Having the chance to enjoy it without worries about accessibility is essential, indees, to live a peaceful holiday.

AT Campania has just started, but there are all the premises to make it grow and become a reference point for the tourism in Campania, starting from the dedication of its promoters. Let’s create our account on the website and share our experience: a more accessible world for everyone is possible, if every one of us does his own part! 

“Pompei per tutti”: the digs are (at last) accessible

2016 ends with good news: starting from December 2nd (in time for the World Disability Day, not just an accidental coincidence, and, for sure, a meaningful one), will finally start “Pompei per tutti” (“Pompeii for all”), a 3 km itinerary that will enable people with motoric disabilities, little children and elderly people, but also blind and partially-sighted ones, to enjoy one of the most famous and visited archaeological sites in the world.

"Pompei per tutti"

Thanks to the new clay floor on sidewalks and uncovered areas, plus some steel ramps, removable and respectful towards the site’ structure and historic value, everyone can now visit Pompeii with no risks. The “Pompei per tutti” itinerary twists and turns from the Porta Marina entrance to the Amphitheatre, alongside Abbondanza road, with the chance to access the most interesting domus and the most meaningful buildings in the site, for a total of 20 monuments. It will be possible to visit the Giulia Felice’s complex, the Venus in the Shell’s house and the Octavius Quartio house, both opened again in March, or the Ephebe’s house, the Cryptportico’ and the Sacerdos Amandus’ ones, that can be visited since December 2015. It will also include the Fugitives’ garden, the Faun house and the Dioscuri’s house, to reach the tower closing Mercury road. The itinerary also leads to the Court, with the chance to walk the most part of the portico, from the Basilica to the Venus Temple.

“Pompei per tutti” will be the most extended assisted itinerary to visit an archaeological site, in Italy. We hope it won’t remain a unique case, but only the first of a long list, since Italy is, as a matter of fact, an “open air museum” that everyone, including people with disabilities or reduced mobility, has the right to enjoy and admire.
