Tirana



Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

Yes. It would be quite difficult to get around. - Aug 2, 2016
Very difficult. Don't come here. - Aug 2, 2015
Yes - sidewalks are intermittent and uneven. Elevators are occasional. There are open man holes scattered around like traps for the unwary. - Aug 12, 2014
Tirana would be a very difficult city to live in with physical disabilities. Sidewalks are non-existent in many parts of the city. Many buildings are not reasonably accessible. There is a burgeoning disability awareness, but it is still nascent. Many multi-story buildings have elevators, but they require you to go up a flight of stairs to get into them. - May 18, 2013
Bad sidewalks, no ramps, not great. - Dec 27, 2012
This city is not at all accessible for someone in a wheelchair or with limited mobility. - Oct 1, 2011
There is no wheelchair accessibility within the city. There are elevators, but no ramps. Albania is still considered 3rd world and there streets suffer, though some streets are paved or in the process of being paved, or just totally unpaved. Sidewalks are pretty poor to non-existent. - Mar 31, 2008
