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

Probably. Sidewalks can be difficult and most houses have stairs. Apartment living would be a good option though. - May 2022

The city is not designed for physical disabilities. - Apr 2018

Probably, depending on the extent of the disability. The U.S. embassy is wheelchair accessible, but many buildings don't have elevators and have steps to even enter the front door, with few ramps that I've spotted. Sidewalks are also not always in the best of conditions. - Oct 2017

Yes. There aren't a lot of "ADA-compliant" facilities outside of the U.S. embassy. Sidewalks are challenging. Forget about the medinas.... - Oct 2017

Absolutely. - Jul 2014

Pretty much what you would imagine for most developing country cities. - Nov 2011

Impossible. - Nov 2011

The city offers minimal problems except many houses have lots of steps, many sunken levels etc. Traveling in country can have challenges in that old cities with big bazaars are not accessible by vehicles and the pavement is uneven with lots of potholes and hordes of people etc. - Sep 2011

Getting around could be a little difficult. - Apr 2010

Streets are poorly constructed as well as sidewalks (when they exist). High curbs. It's not fun with a stroller. - Jun 2008
