We will do everything possible to find hotels, wineries, and transportation that is conducive to disabled travelers.

TRAVELING WITHIN THE UNITED STATES:
The Disability Act requires public buildings to provide handicap accessibility which will allow any wheelchairs in public areas. Wineries will have access to their wine tasting rooms, but may have some limitations to their vineyards, outbuildings or caves.
Most of the cities and towns you will be visiting were built hundreds of years ago without regard for the modern conveniences and disability laws we enjoy in the United States. The city and towns have quaint, narrow, cobblestone streets, unaccustomed to motorized transportation. To preserve their antiquity, many cities and old towns are pedestrian-only and may not be conveniently accessible for guest with mobility impairments. Similarly, there will be buildings, museums, monuments, etc. that do not have elevators which make stair climbing a necessity. In addition, there are very few cities that have installed handicap accessible restrooms. Passengers must be able to walk anywhere from 0.5 miles to over 3 miles over uneven and cobblestone surfaces, inclines and stairs.
