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

That depends on the severity of the disability. Sidewalks are uneven, and some streets are made of cobblestones. Most restaurants and stores have stairs going up or down to enter. Ramps and elevators are scarce, the same as in the rest of Europe. - Jul 9, 2016
Probably - there are many historical buildings and apartments that are only walk-ups. - May 1, 2014
No. - Feb 8, 2014
It is a walking/bike riding city with some apartments that still have no elevator. Be sure to ask if this is a concern. - Aug 7, 2011
The sidewalks are not often even, so getting around on a wheelchair or crutches can be difficult. And while there are stroller ramps for the large buggies, I did not see a wealth of wheelchair ramps in the city. Many apartment buildings do not have elevators, either. - Jul 22, 2011
