Venice slightly more wheel-chair friendly till March 2011


Venice. The ramps built on 13 bridges for last month's Venice Marathon will remain in place until 8 March 2011. They make three km accessible to wheelchairs on two routes,  one along the Zattere as far as the Punta della Dogana, which houses Francois Pinault's collection; the other, from Piazzetta San Marco, past the Doge's Palace and Bridge of Sighs (unfortunately still with mega-advertisements) down the Riva degli Schiavoni, with San Zaccaria just inside, to the Arsenale with the Architecture Biennale until 21 November.
