An accessible resort, your holidays without barriers in Italy
Bibione is the first destination in Italy to believe in a project of higher accessibility and inclusiviness. Bibione Destination for All is a path that involves all the stakeholders of the city, with the aim of overcoming the architectural barriers and create a real culture of hospitality.
