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:

> 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.
