Florence by car
ZTL - Restricted Traffic Zone
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 do not possess a special access pass.
Other than in 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.
Non-resident and tourist access
Non residents are prohibited from driving and parking cars within the ZTL at the following times:
- Year round: Monday to Friday from 7,30 am to 8,00 pm; Saturdays from 7,30 am to 4,00 pm.
- Additional summer night ZTL: in addition to the times listed above, every year during summer access is prohibited as well at night from approximately the end of May until the middle of September (usually this concerns only Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays between approximately 11 pm until 3 am).
Tourists that travel by car and who need to travel within the ZTL to reach their accommodation facilities or a garage can obtain a temporary access permit. In order to obtain this permit, communicate your licence plate number to your accommodation facility (or garage); they will forward it to the appropriate office. A temporary permit is issued for a maximum of 2 hours (for luggage transport purposes) only on arrival and departure dates. For the remainder of one’s stay clients have to park their car either outside the ZTL or in a commercial/hotel's private garage inside the ZTL.
The holder of a 'contrassegno invalidi' (disability pass) requiring short-term access to the ZTL may apply via e-mail to upd@serviziallastrada or call 800339891. In case of a written application, please attach the following documents:
- date(s) of stay in Florence
- copy of the disability pass
- license plate number
- copy of ID
A map of these parking lots is available here
The hourly and daily costs of the parking lots can be found by clicking on the details of each lot listed here
White lines: resident parking (you must have a resident pass for this area to park here);
Blue lines: paid parking (anyone, including non residents, may park here and pay at the parcometro or coin-operated dispenser);
Yellow lines: parking for the disabled, indicated also by a sign. The sign often indicates a special pass number, in which case this space is reserved for a specific person and not available to any other disability pass holders.
Please note that in each area, one night each week or each month, due to street cleaning parking is not permitted. This in order to give access to the street cleaning machines. Please see the relevant section street cleaning to learn how to read these signs and avoid getting a ticket.
