While in the city, you’ll also want to visit its ancient fortresses, naval shipyard and the Medici port. And don’t miss a trip to its Venice district; this area, located in the heart of the city, was created at the beginning of the 18th century.
Nestled right behind the port, it was founded to facilitate trade. Its numerous canals, bridges and waterside homes showcase the commercial and maritime flair that has always characterized the city. The boat can be accessed by non-electric wheelchairs when assisted. You can catch it on the Fortress side of Piazza della Repubblica. It leaves every 20 minutes and boat-rides last approximately one hour. Spaces are reserved for those in wheelchairs.
