Tourism and disability
The two Tourist and Congress reception offices in Nîmes have been awarded 'Tourism and Disability' (Tourisme & Handicap) status and have specific facilities for four types of disability:
> Mental disability
Texts with large print and simple images illustrating each category of document available. Tourist stay advisors have the skills to help persons with this type of disability.
> Physical disability
The premises are accessible for persons in wheelchairs and a reception counter is set at the appropriate height.
> Hearing disorder
The reception counter is equipped with an induction loop for amplifying sound for persons using hearing aids.
> Visual disability
Tactile bands are fitted to doors and step nosing so that persons with visual impairment can move in safety. Tourist information with a map of Nîmes and a description of the monuments and museums in Braille is available at reception.
