WALKING DOWN VIA MAQUEDA AND THE AREA IN FRONT OF TEATRO MASSIMO
Maqueda
Via Vittorio Emanuele
Via Roma
HAVE A LOOK ON THE STREET!
STEPS EVERYWHERE :(
HOW CAN I GO IN?
Via
OK :)
NO RAMP TO ACCESS THE SIDEWALK BUT I'M NOT A CAR!
TOO NARROW :/
THE LAW FACULTY
LET'S WHATCH SOME VIDEO ON THE BARRIERS IN VIA VITTORIO EMANUELE
CARS PARKED ON THE SIDEWALK!

NOTES ABOUT ARCHITECTURAL BARRIERS AND FACILITIES
IN VIA ROMA
The ramps on the streets
works everywhere! :)
... but often there are cars
parked in front of the ramp!

There are some holes in the sidewalk :(
One of the analyzed bar
has no stairs and it was
easy to go in! :)
... but the other one had
NO RAMP for the wheelchair :/
About churches:
-doors too small to allow the entrance
to a person on a wheelchair
-no ramp only stares :(
SHOPS:
one had a low step that was easy to overcome WHITH AN ACCOMPAYNING PERSON
the second one had an elevator to reach the upper floors and kind personnel who helped us with the door :)
the third one had no barriers at all!

THE POST OFFICE:
a person on a wheelchair can't get inside from the entrance! But there was a special parking place for disabled so we looked around and on the back of the post office we found an accessible entrance...
Moving away from the main road, there are some small and narrow streets that are not easy to use because of the ancient paving.
