Today tourism is perceived as a social need of primary importance, source of knowledge and discovery of the reality that surrounds us. It is necessary, therefore, to be able to make it accessible to all the people who are in special conditions. In this article we will analyze the stages of the evolution - even of the normative - of accessible tourism and of the reference market, for which the relative demand represents a great opportunity for the development of a tourist destination. Finally, a Sicilian city worthy of note will be analyzed for the realization of initiatives and projects in the field of tourist accessibility: a best practice that can be an example for other Italian realities in order to make truly accessible all the wonders that our country offers.
