Tunis



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

Yes but it is possible. Sidewalks are narrow, uneven and have trees growing in the middle of them or piles of rusty nails on the ground. Many buildings have access ramps but they are not of any sort of standard spec and are often very steep. - Nov 29, 2017
Yes, acceptable accomodations for those with disabilities are not found in many places. - Nov 3, 2015
Yes. There aren't many handicap friendly buildings. Even some doctors offices are on the 2nd or 3rd floors of apartment buildings and would be hard to get to. - Nov 26, 2014
Every difficulty. Tunis is not handicap accessible. There are few proper sidewalks, and where there are people have almost surely parked their cars on them. There may be ramps at some buildings, but I can't say that I remember any. - Jul 29, 2013
A lot! There are hardly any ramps. But there are many stairs and crooked sidewalks/roads. - Jun 21, 2013
Houses are often split-level or have stairs. Apartment buildings, especially the new ones, have elevators. There is no handicapped parking. Sidewalks are not designed for wheel chairs. - Feb 3, 2012
A lot. - Oct 28, 2011
It would be quite difficult - the sidewalks are often non-existent, and if they are there, they are not kept up and/or a car will be parked on them. There are definitely no wheelchair ramps anywhere. - Jul 11, 2010
Many. There are no usable sidewalks, and cars do NOT wait for pedestrians. Elevators work sometimes. It was funny to see the elevator broken that we needed to take to get to the orthopedist. He was on the same floor as the cardiologist at the top of the stairs :) - May 3, 2010
Many. There are very few sidewalks and ramps in this town. - Jan 13, 2010
