From Candace, a member of our community:
Paris is rather difficult for travelers with wheelchairs. They’re trying to become more wheelchair-accessible by cutting the curbs at crosswalks. The curb ramps are not completely flat–maybe an inch but doable. Many of the stores have tall stoops (2" to 12") make it inaccessible to wheelchairs and you might come upon an area that has not too many places to stop at restaurants or just get out of the rain. There were a few Italian restaurants near or hotel that had good ramps, so there we were in Paris eating pizza! Transportation was very limited unless you’re going where you can take a bus because the Metro is below ground and no elevators. We spent a fortune on wheelchair ramped G7 taxis. Even the RER trains were inaccessible because most stops didn’t have attendants to place a gap filler between train and platform to let wheelchair users off. We paid a G7 taxi about $400 to take us round-trip with time to visit Monet’s beautiful gardens and lily ponds in Giverny. The Paris Office of Tourism will tell you Monet’s house is accessible but isn’t. My non-disabled husband went in and photographed. Art museums are free and accessible and that’s where we spent most of our time, though it was a little unnerving when they let you in ahead of hundreds of folks who’d been waiting hours.
