Taking my visually impaired mum to Europe.

Jump to last reply

Hey all!

Im 24, I've never been to Europe, so i've decided to take the leap and take my mum next July/August, She did the lot when she was younger but hasn't been for years, now in her early fifties, I hope to take her back there, the only concern I have is that she is virtually blind. Although she is unable to see, I know she'll absolutely love it all the same, she loves lying by the pool, beautiful beaches, food, wine, shopping, markets etc..How could you not enjoy it!

My worries are that although she's quite agile, id like to avoid places with unruly, rocky pathways..lots of steps, etc... The easier it is to commute around the better. I am hoping to rely mostly on taxi's..however a kilometre or two here and there is not a problem. Also places which aren't filled with pissed 20 year old travellers, yet not too quiet, romantic haha needs to have a great vibe.

Here are the destinations I'm looking at visiting.

Capri
Positano
Lake Como
Sorrento
Ravello
Sardinia

Hvar

Santorini
Mykonos

Paris
St Tropez
Nice
Marsielle
Bordeux
Cote d’Azur
Giverny (Normandy)

I'd love to hear all your thoughts on places, where I should/shouldn't visit. Tips?

Cheers guys!

Ollie.
