The Bourbon Tunnel is the only site of the Naples underground circuit that allows visits to disabled people with mobility impairments for about 60% of the "Standard" tour. The street level entrance within the Morelli parking allows easy access to the subsoil.
The Bourbon Tunnel is proud to be part of the "Naples in the hands" network, which is the result of the collaboration of the University Service for Students with Disabilities (SAAD) of the University of Suor Orsola Benincasa with the National Archaeological Museum of Naples, the Regional Museum of Campania, the Museum of Capodimonte, the Deputation of the San Gennaro Treasury Chapel, the Social Cooperative La Paranza, the Borbonica Sotterranea Association, the Botanical Garden and some associations of people with disabilities such as DPI, ENS-Campania, UICI and UNIVoC. It is a project that responds to the need to identify possible solutions to the issues related to the use of Cultural Heritage so that, in the perspective of an inclusive society, every citizen can be guaranteed universal right to culture, as enshrined in the UN Convention on Rights of people with disabilities, as well as the Italian Constitution (Articles 3 and 9). It is concretized in the preparation of itineraries that, open to all, allow people with disabilities to enjoy the art places knowing the elements they characterize through interventions specifically designed to overcome both architectural, sensory and communication barriers and those deriving from any other form of cultural disadvantage.
