Motor disabilities

Access to people in wheelchairs or with mobility difficulties is possible throughout the Botanical Garden.
Entrance is possible from the driveway (green gate), requesting to open it at the ticket office or by ringing the intercom.

The Greenhouses and the whole outdoor area of ​​the Botanical Garden, both in the Garden and in the Grove, are practicable without obstacles; part of the route winds on asphalt, part on grass, part on dirt.

The only part that is not accessible is the Greenhouse of tropical plants, which is accessed by going down 4 steps and the corridor is not large enough to allow the passage of wheelchairs.

The toilets are in a building to the right of the entrance and are suitable for motor disabilities.


Visual impairment

There is a tactile path for the visually impaired and blind people created with the collaboration of the Italian Blind Union, consisting of 10 explanatory signs with double writing: Braille and large normal relief writing. The signs also show, always in relief, some drawings useful for the recognition of the species.


Guided tours for disabled people

Upon request, guided tours for groups of disabled people can be organized by specially trained guides. Modalities and themes will be agreed as appropriate.

They must be booked in advance at 338 9581569 or by writing to the email


Free visits

Disabled people and groups of disabled people can in any case access the Botanical Garden during normal opening days and times and have a free visit.


How to reach the Botanical Garden

The Botanical Garden does not have a private parking. Disabled users must park at the nearest public car park, located on Corso Massimo d'Azeglio or Viale Mattioli, accessing from Torino Esposizioni.

Public transport on lines 9, 18 and 67 are equipped with a platform for the descent of wheelchairs.

The "Valentino" stop (lines 9 and 16) is the closest to the entrance to the Botanical Garden (120 m).
