ZTL - Restricted Traffic Zone in Florence

The entire historic center of Florence (generally speaking the part located within the 19th century ring-roads which is a protected "UNESCO Heritage Site") is a "zona a traffico limitato (ZTL)" or restricted traffic zone. Special rules govern access to, as well as transit and parking in this zone.

Non-residents are prohibited from driving and parking within the ZTL at the following times:
on weekdays (Mondays through Fridays): from 7.30 a.m. to 7.30 p.m.
on Saturdays: from 7,30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The boundaries of the ZTL are marked by special road signs and have a series of "access points" which are controlled by cameras that automatically detect the number plates of all the vehicles passing through. Transit through some of the "access points" (those reserved exclusively for public transport and emergency vehicles), is prohibited at all times, 24/7: ( Via de' Benci — Via Panzani — Via della Mattonaia — Via XXVII Aprile — Via La Marmora — Via Senese — Via della Scala — Zona Stazione Santa Maria Novella ).

To make your stay a little easier, if you are coming by car we suggest that you park your car in a public parking lot on the outskirts of the historic center and come to us by taxi. Otherwise, we can offer you a solution for private parking garage not far from us.
