Accessible Europe tourist destinations: Europe, or the “Old Continent” as many call it, is also the most accessible area on Earth.
A vast network of highways (in many countries free of charge), high-speed trains and even (low cost) airlines connect the various countries that make up Europe.
Most European countries are united in a single economic area, the European Community.
The European Community Countries almost all uses the same currency (EURO) and many are part of a geographical union (the Schengen Treaty) which allows European citizens and also foreign tourists, to move from one Country to another without customs formalities.
As previously written, accessibility, especially in Western Europe, is at a very good level and is quite homogeneous between the various European countries.
There are national and European laws that protect people with disabilities.
There are rules that transport companies, accommodation facilities, public buildings or buildings open to the public must respect and provide a fairly uniform level of accessibility.
Europe is the destination of hundreds of millions of tourists, from all over the world, every year and hundreds of thousands are tourists with disabilities who visit its cities, its museums and monuments, its tourist and cultural attractions, its parks and its natural beauties.
