Information for people with special needs

Small sidewalks and overcrowded parked cars have given the profile of an inaccessible city to Athens. However, during the last years there have been made significant efforts in order for both the capital and the rest of the country to have accessible infrastructures and services. At the public transportations there are indicated seats for persons with special needs, while most of the city buses have special ramps to facilitate people with mobility issues to get on and off. Accessible are most of the museums and archaeological sites, but however it is suggested that before visiting you should contact the site in order to avoid any discomfort.
