Paris Sidewalk Accessibility

A sidewalk curb cut in Paris, France - Photo by John MorrisSidewalk pavements in most of Paris’s neighborhoods or arrondissements are in a generally good state of repair.  The majority of sidewalks are smooth and are equipped with curb cuts.  Some sidewalks are paved with bricks or cobblestones, making them uneven.  These are rare along streets, but more common at some of the sights and attractions, including the Sacré-Cœur Basilica and the Palace of Versailles.

Intersections are equipped with curb cuts and lighted crossing indicators.

The majority of the popular tourist attractions are located in areas of the city that are generally flat.  Some areas, like the Pigalle neighborhood and other areas surrounding the Montmartre, can be quite steep.  Pay close attention to electric wheelchair batteries when navigating these areas.
