Touchable Tuscany

Presentation

Our fully adapted program for the blind and visually impaired is an amazing experience for participants to discover the art, culture, and Italian cuisine that makes Tuscany one of the most sought after, beautiful destinations in the world.
We hosted a German group in April, 2017, and over the summer we hosted two Italian groups with individuals that were either blind, or visually impaired.
We work with hotels and restaurants that were founded by the Association of Blind People of Florence as part of a tourism & disability project that began in 2016.
