Many hotels and self-catering holiday rentals in and around Lake Como can accommodate wheelchair access. Prior to making a booking contact the relevant hotel or holiday rental company and check with them.
The majority of the ferries (including car-ferries) can accommodate wheelchair users. However there may be some difficulty for wheelchair users embarking on the hydrofoils (the fast service boat) as there are some outdoor steps to go up.
Motoscafi (small motor boats) are not wheelchair accessible.
The longer boat trips departing from Como to Lenno, Tremezzo, Bellagio, Menaggio, Varenna and Colico branch normally use larger boats but only during the spring and summer months. These are wheelchair accessible and have toilets suitable for disabled people. It is advisable to verify directly with the operator at the ferry ticket booth whether the boat you are planning to take accommodates people with motor disabilities.
ASF Autolinee buses in and around Como state that 70% of their buses can transport people with motor disabilities but at the moment cannot guarantee a steady service since they are not well distributed among the lines.
Some of the towns that are more accommodating for wheelchair access are; Como, Lecco, Menaggio as these have wide promenades and more space, Tremezzo is ok in parts but the pavement is inconsistent going from wide to narrow with high kerbs at sections. Along the main lakeside area of Tremezzo is fine.
