The Handbook is easy to consult and has many national and international examples available.The Handbook is a management tool, which provides concrete guidance on "why" and "how" managers can develop tourism destinations accessible to all. By increasing destination managers' skills on accessibility issues, not only visitors will benefit but also tourism enterprises and Portugal will become more competitive.
