In pedestrian areas (pavements, squares and pedestrian streets) paving is of even stone slabs.

The road is cobbled and uneven and can cause difficulty for transit.

There are no steps along the route, or major slopes, or protruding objects which could pose a risk to the visually impaired although, depending on the time of year, furniture used by restaurants and stores on the main square and pedestrian streets can pose difficulties for transit.

There is no tactile paving to aid the visually impaired.
