    Default minor disability tourism

    My wife uses a cane when walking about. We often use wheelchairs, if available, when visiting large museums. Are wheelchairs--or walkers--available for borrowing or rental in Florence's larger museums like the Accademia and the Pitti?

    Make sure to read this, it has a few places that rent out wheelchairs if you'll find it more comfortable during your entire stay:

    Only the Uffizi has about 6 wheelchairs available for use, on a first-come, first-served basis. Accademia and Pitti do not, as far as I know.
    In the beginning stages of planning to come to Tuscany? Make sure to read Where to Stay in Tuscany WITH a car and Where to Stay in Tuscany WITHOUT a car for ideas on where to stay in Tuscany. Also read When to Visit Tuscany to decide when is the best times for your visit.

    Default I took my handicap card placard with me

    to the Uffizi and had no trouble getting a wheel chair. There are many cobblestone streets which might cause a little difficulty with a cane, especially when wet
