‘Accessible Paris’ the essential guide for visitors with disabilities


The Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau helps all visitors to enjoy and explore the French capital, and has just published the 2019-2020 version of its dedicated brochure Accessible Paris.

This practical 28-page guide provides visitors with everything they need to know on how to get to and around Paris, where to stay, and also where to find adapted places for entertainment. It is also a source of information for accessible cultural attractions and recreational activities, and suggests a sightseeing itinerary adapted to wheelchair users. The rich content of this new edition provides an increased number of accessible activities for everyone to discover.

Available in French and in English, at the Tourist Office’s information point, at City Hall (Hôtel de Ville), it is also available on request in large print or in (French) braille. In addition, it can be consulted and downloaded on the website PARISINFO.COM, in the rubric ‘Practical/Visiting Paris with a disability’.

For several years, the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau has been active on the subject of accessibility, leading dedicated workshops and raising awareness among Parisian tourism professionals who are seeking to improve the welcome they offer to their visitors.

Pierre Schapira, Chairman of the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau, has also stated that the PCVB will be taking part in the 2nd World Summit on Accessible Tourism, to be held in Brussels: ‘our participation in this 2nd summit and its accessible tourism trade show 2018 will be the occasion to discover good practice and innovations in the sector and promote the offer of Parisian attractions as well as the initiatives that facilitate the stay of visitors with disabilities’.
