Wheelchair Accessible Corsica, France

Wheelchair accessible Corsica is one of the favourite destinations of the French people. Located in the middle of the Mediterranean, the climate is pleasant for a good part of the year. Corsica has many experiences between the sea and mountains. It offers all visitors magnificent landscapes. Here is a wheelchair accessible guide to Corsica where you will find lots of information about the different accessible sites in Corsica.

 

The Ajaccien Country

Napoleon’s birthplace, Ajaccio is a city steeped in history and traditions. With its colourful buildings and Mediterranean style, it can be very interesting to start your journey by visiting the old town. As for the accessibility of the streets, some sidewalks may prove to be in poor condition. But the city centre is generally passable and does not pose a problem.

 

The Napoleon Museum of Ajaccio

Also called the National Museum of the Maison Bonaparte, this building was the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. The visit will delight all those who are passionate about French history. However, the entire museum is not accessible to people with reduced mobility. It is only possible to visit the ground floor and part of the first floor as well as the temporary exhibition.

 

Accessible Activities in Bonifacio

Located in the south of Wheelchair accessible Corsica, it shares a strait with Italian Sardinia called Les Bouches de Bonifacio. Les Bouches is also home to an immense natural park, one of the largest in France. In this guide, we recommend many beaches because Corsica beaches are all worthy of a paradise island with the facilities accessible to people with reduced mobility as a bonus. For example, Balistra beach is a piece of heaven on earth. A magnificent lagoon precedes it and offers a breathtaking drone view. In addition, this beach also has facilities accessible to people with reduced mobility. It offers an access mat to the sea as well as the loan of an amphibious chair for you to swim safely in the Mediterranean.
