The Municipality of Venice established 12 wheelchair-accessible areas of the city. Below we provide their names and a brief description, which will be supplemented and expanded by your tour guide during the tour.
The Marciana Area roughly corresponds to that of St. Mark’s Square. It is the heart of the city, described by Napoleon Bonaparte as “the most beautiful living room in the world,” as well as the only square in Venice to call itself such (all other squares are called “campi”).
From here, you can admire famous palaces and monuments, including the Doge’s Palace, St. Mark’s bell tower, the Clock Tower, St. Mark’s Basilica, and the Procuratie.
It is where the oldest core of Venice was built. Its name comes from the Latin “rivus altus” or “deep canal” and refers to the well-known Grand Canal, which flows between the islands forming part of the Rialto area.
Here you can admire the bridge by the same name and travel across Campo San Luca, Campo Manin, Campo Salvador and Campo San Bartolomeo. In the area there are also the Goldoni Theater and Scala del Bovolo.
In this area, you can find a few branches of the Ca’ Foscari University. For this reason, it is a very popular area for students, especially Campo Santa Margherita. The remarkable attractions here, including those of great cultural interest, include Fondamenta delle Zattere, the Church of San Sebastiano, Palazzo Zenobio, Scuola Grande dei Carmini, and Campiello degli Squellini.
It is the Campo Santa Maria dei Frari, the headquarters of the imposing basilica by the same name consecrated in 1492. Some of the most famous tourist attractions include: Campo San Tomà, Scoletta dei Calegheri, Basilica dei Frari, Campo San Rocco, Chiesa e Scuola Grande di San Rocco, and Scuola di San Giovanni Evangelista.
It corresponds approximately to Campo Santo Stefano, the headquarters of the thirteenth-century church by the same name. Some of the most famous tourist attractions include: Palazzo Grassi, Piscina San Samuele, Campo Santo Stefano, Palazzo Pisani, Palazzo Franchetti-Cavalli and Ponte dell’Accademia.
Also this area roughly corresponds to Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo, as well as the neighboring areas. The attractions of cultural interest include the imposing Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, the Ospedaletto Church, Campo de le Meravegie, the Colleoni Equestrian Statue, and the Scuola Grande di San Marco.
In the Castello Est area, there is the largest green space of all of Venice, consisting of a splendid pine forest and urban garden, dating back to the nineteenth century.The direct view of the Lagoon makes it even more striking.
In addition to the green areas, it houses the following attractions and places of interest: the Church of Sant’ Elena, Church of San Giuseppe in Castello, Napoleonic Gardens, Via Garibaldi, and Basilica of San Pietro di Castello.
This area is named after the Ca’ d’Oro Palace, a Gothic building with an oriental style, built in the fifteenth century, so called because originally some parts of its facade were cladded in gold.
In addition to this building, there are many other places and palaces of interest, such as Campo Santa Sofia (home of Palazzo Foscari, Palazzo Sagredo, and the Church of Santa Sofia), Palazzo Mangilli-Valmarana, and the Church of Santi Apostoli.
Santa Marta is historically a popular area of Venice transformed, in recent years, into a university citadel thanks to a gradual conversion of factories and facilities into classrooms for Ca’ Foscari and IUAV. Among the most interesting buildings of industrial archeology, we can mention: the historic gas meter and aqueduct plants, and the buildings of the former Cotonificio Veneziano and Magazzini Ligabue.
There are also pre-industrial attractions in this area, such as the fourteenth-century Church of Santa Marta, Church of Santa Teresa dating back to 1688, Church of San Nicolò dei Mendicoli dating back to the twelfth century, and Church of San Sebastiano, dating back to 1562.
In this area, located on the western bank of the Grand Canal there is the historic fish, fruit and flower market that has been active here for more than 900 years.
Some of the most interesting attractions in the area include Campo Sant’Aponal, the Church of San Giovanni Elemosinario, Campo della Pescaria, the Church of San Giacometo, the Banco Giro, the Gobbo di Rialto, and Campo dell’Erberia.
Sestiere Cannaregio is located in the northern area of Venice and is the most populated of the city. Its name orginates from the Latin word “cannarecium,” or reed beds, which occupied the entire area before it became a residential center.
The most important street in the sestiere is called Strada Nova. It stretches from the Santa Lucia railway station to Rialto and is wheelchair accessible. The most famous places of interest found here include Calle Ruga Alto with its many shops; Ca’ Farsetti and Ca’ Loredan, the headquarters of the City Hall; the barbacans located in Calle della Madonna, and the Church of San Giovanni Elemosinario.
The Fondamenta delle Zattere constitutes the southernmost part of the island: overlooking the Giudecca canal, they are located in sestiere Dorsoduro.
This is a place perfect for a walk in spring and summer, thanks to its position well-lit by the sun and the presence of many bars and ice-cream-parlors. Excellent viability is ensured by a series of ramps installed at the Salute, Calcina, Incurabili, and Longo bridges, which are also wheelchair accessible.
In addition to the wonderful view of the Giudecc a Canal, in this area it is possible to admire Palazzo Foscari, the Gallerie dell’Accademia, the Church of Santa Maria del Rosario, Palazzo Venier and many other buildings of precious historical and cultural value.
