Liguria is a region in northwestern Italy on the Gulf of Genoa. It is divided into several provinces: Genoa, Imperia, La Spezia, and Savona. This is a mountainous region that enjoys a mild climate and splendid natural beauty.

Liguria is mostly agricultural, and the regional capital, Genoa, is home to Terre di Mare, an information center for tourist accessibility. The center, which is located in the center of Genoa at Palazzo Ducale, is easy to reach by wheelchair. Here you will find all the information you need about barrier-free tourism in the region--theaters and cinemas, restaurants, accommodations, bathing establishments, transportation, and events. The center also provides free Internet access and an accessible toilet.

The Terre di Mare Web site, terredi, contains almost all the information you will need to plan an accessible trip to the beautiful region of Liguria: directions on how to reach the Terre di Mare center, or point, as it is referred to on the Web site, as well as descriptions of accessible sightseeing tours, or routes, that take in Genoa attractions such as the aquarium, old harbor, Medieval Town, and several impressive museums.
