By Car

If you arrive in Florence by car, it is worth parking it and... using public transport, or just walking since the historical center is very small.

ZTL

Access is granted, at any time, to visitors who need to reach with their car a hotel where they have a booking - ask the hotel for the shortest, allowed itinerary - In both cases, visitors have to communicate immediately, every time of each passage, their car number plate details to the hotel, or garage. Within the ZTL area, transit is always prohibited in the pedestrian zones and lanes reserved for public transportation. The latter are indicated with yellow lines and writing on the road and a sign that shows a lane reserved for bus/taxi.

During the customer's stay, the car can't be parked on the streets (eventually within the hotel area or in a garage).

The boundaries of the ZTL are well marked. At the access points, special bilingual displays use red or green lights to indicate if access is authorized or not at that time. These access points are controlled by cameras that automatically detect one’s license plate, and fines will be issued to drivers who are not authorised.

The hours of the ZTL:

From June 1, 2017 to October 10, 2017: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday h 7,30am-8pm. Thursday and Friday ztl will start at 7,30am and will finish at 3am of the following day. Saturday: from 7,30am to 4pm & from 11pm to 3am of Sunday. Outside these hours (when the light is green) the access is always allowed, with the same restrictions (no pedestrian areas, no reserved lanes).

PARKINGS

At the borders of the ZTl there are many parkings ("Parterre" near Piazza Libertà, "Fortezza fiera", next to the Fortezza da Basso, "Beccaria" near Sant'Ambrogio) with cheaper fares: around € 2 per hour / € 20 per day (€ 10 the 1st day at the "Parterre") / € 70 per week. Pay attention at the fares! in some parkings (like the one under the main train station, and others) it's not advisable to park for long period, because it would be very expensive! You will find all the information - including availability in real time - on the website of Firenze Parcheggi.

A NEW PARK & RIDE SYSTEM

From June 12, 2017 you can use the "Highway Parking Spaces" of Scandicci (Highway A1, Milan-Naples). It allows you to park within the highway and easily reach the Tramway terminus (“Villa Costanza”- T1) which will bring you in only 20 minutes right into the city centre (Santa Maria Novella); frequency: every 4 minutes; fares: € 7 per day, € 2 ‘till 4hrs, € 4 ‘till 8hrs. Other free Park & Ride spaces are along the tramway 1: terminus "Villa Costanza" and stop "De André" via Sassetti (both in Scandicci).

Outside the ZTL Florence is organized into ZCSs (controlled parking zones) with spaces marked in blue (pay parking spots) and white (only for residents). The fares range according to the area (€1/2 the 1st hour, €2/3 the 2nd). To pay (credit card oR cash) there are machines stamping a ticket that has to be left, visible, on the dashboard of the car. You can also pay with your smartphone: downolad the App Tap & Park (Apple store, Google Play and Windows store) and follow the instructions. Pay attention at the street signs: especially when they clean the street (the cars eventually got removed... and that's a very bad experience - info +39 055 4224142 / 3283333); "parcheggio a rotazione" means that you can park only for very short periods.
