NO!

There arent any wheelchair accessible hotels (if so, I didnt find them!) and almost all sightseeings have steps and no ramps or elevators. I was hugely disappointed and on top of that: it was raining cats and dogs and my wheelchair became rusty... After 4 day instead of 7 I left.

0stanbul is a great city . a growing city last day of each. 0stanbul is the largest city in Turkey and 2nd largest city proper in the world with a population of 13 million, also making it the largest metropolitan city proper in Europe and the second largest metropolitan area in Europe by population. Istanbul is also a megacity, as well as the cultural, economic, and financial centre of Turkey. So you can be relax in Turkey don't worry !

Hi egenman

Istanbul might be a nice city but it's a nightmare for wheelchair users! And that was sarahs question. It's irelevant how big a city is, that doesnt say anything about accessebility.
I couldnt do anything there at all and people stared at me like Im a monster in a wheelchair. Turkey sure is very interesting but not by wheelchair. at all.

Regards,
Clareen
