People living in European cities get around much of the time by using public transportation and walking. Taxis can be expensive and finding places to park a car can be difficult and/or expensive. Consequently, people living and traveling in European cities tend to cover long distances each day. For people with mobility issues, these long distances can be challenging. Fortunately there are ways to minimize the effort needed to get around. Knowing the shortest route between locations, knowing where the hills and cobblestones are located, and using taxis can make getting around manageable.
