While this is a relaxed Itinerary, participants should have the ability to stand or walk for at least 90 minutes.  While most tours will take us downhill, the ability to walk up steep hills is recommended.  Since much of the area was built in the Renaissance period, some multi-level buildings do not have elevators.  Disabled accessibility may be limited in this region.
