Mums Not Allowed

Paris is not the city for you if you are a mum with a toddler in a pushchair. Very few of the metro stations have disabled access, which makes travelling with a pushchair very frustrating and next to impossible. And when they do have disabled access, the glass swing doors are always locked and mostly unmanned. A few of them do have a speaker system through which you can request assistance but it’s a tedious process. And even when you do manage to get over this hurdle, you then have the steps to contend with. Paris screams 'mums not allowed!!'

This does seem to be true in most of the big big cities, though I think Spain and Italy are a lot more child friendly than France.

It's even worse for elderly people trying to maneuver the metros.
