Travel tip: wheelchairs in Paris

There are a number of wheelchair-friendly tourist attractions in The City of Light. However, it seems that there are fewer in Paris than in other international cities.

The question below appeared on the San Jose Mercury News Web site:

Question: Is there anywhere in Paris to rent a wheelchair for a parent who is unable to walk long distances?

Answer: The French Government Tourist Office told us that some pharmacies in the Paris area rent wheelchairs. Try Pharmacie Thoraval, 264 Boulevard Voltaire. You can send e-mail to pharmacie.thoraval@wanadoo.fr or call 011-33-1-43-73-51-73 to reserve one before your arrival.
