How to access Florence historic centre by car

Florence Historic Centre is a ZTL ("Zona a Traffico Limitato" or Limited Traffic Zone), a restricted traffic area controlled by a network of video cameras.

Only vehicles with a ZTL permit are allowed to access the city center at any time. Vehicles withouth such a permit can not access the ZTL from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 6:0 p.m on Suturday (the access is allowed to any car on Sunday). During the summer, generally from June to Semptember, the centre is also closed from 11.00 p.m to 3 a.m. (Thursday, Friday and Suturday night).

If you need to access by car the ZTL within these hours to reach one or our apartments you will have to park in one of the indoor garages located in the Historic Centre (at a cost of around 30 euros a day). Once you arrive they will pass on the details of your vehicle (number plate, etc.) to the local city police and the fine issued on your vehicle will be cancelled.

Please note that times and days changes very often so please the website of the Comune di Firenze for more detailed and updated information.
