What is a ZTL area? The historical center of Florence is a Limited Traffic Zone (Zona a Traffico Limitato, or ZTL zone for short) and special permits are required to enter it. There are high fines if you enter without having the right permit. LET ME REPEAT THAT AGAIN: there are HIGH FINES if you enter the ZTL and don't have a permit! It is ok to enter the ZTL area to park in a private garage because they will communicate the number of your registration plate to the traffic services informing them that you entered the ZTL area to use the private parking, and you will avoid a high fine.

Just so you know, the ZTL is active between 7:30am and 7:30pm on weekdays and 7:30am to 6pm on Saturdays... so you can enter it without a permit outside of these hours, particularly without worrying whether your hotel sent your license plate number to the police. But again, where will you park?



A highly recommened and safe and convenient to park is to park well out of Florence's center and then use the public transport system to get into Florence.

Trams and buses share the same ATAF ticket that costs 1,20 euro for 90 minutes (buy at a tobacco shop or newsagent before bording). You can buy on board at slightly higher price. You MUST validate your ticket once you get on board at one of the ticket machines - then you can use the ticket for the tram and bus for 90 minutes from the time validated on the ticket. You risk serious fines if caught with ticket in hand but not validated - so remember to do that!



The easiest parking spots are along the tram tracks into Florence that run from Scandicci to the SMN train station.

The largest free parking is at the big COOP supermarket off Viale Nenni. The tram stop across the supermarket is called "Nenni-Torregalli". It is a 10-15min ride into Florence.

Another free parking lot is near the "Arcipressi" stop on Via Andrea di Pontedera, with spots both on ground level and underground.

Another free parking lot is also right behind the COOP supermarket on Viale Talenti (off Via Galileo Chini) but this is smaller and usually packed with shoppers. It is also difficult to get to if you're coming off the Fi-Pi-Li (easier if you're coming from Florence).

The closest parking lot to Florence along the tram can be found on Via del Sansovino, with the "Sansovino" tram stop right in front. This is a paid parking lot but a better deal that the ones closer to the center. It is open 24 hours a day and costs 1 euro for the first hour, 0.50 euro every 30 minutes after. Maximum daily rate is 12 euro. (Via del Sansovino 53).



Parcheggi gratuiti si trovano fuori dal centro della città di Firenze, situati vicino alle principali arterie autostradali e collegati al centro con i mezzi pubblici. Questi parcheggi possono essere un'ottima soluzione per chi visita Firenze dalla mattina alla sera.



I parcheggi più facili sono lungo i binari della Tramvia di Firenze che corrono da Scandicci alla stazione ferroviaria di Santa Maria Novella.

Il parcheggio gratuito più grande è quello del supermercato Coop sul Viale Nenni. La fermata del tram davanti al supermercato si chiama "Nenni-Torregalli". La Tramvia raggiunge la stazione di Santa Maria Novella in circa 10-15min.

Un altro parcheggio gratuito si trova vicino alla fermata "Arcipressi" in via Andrea di Pontedera, con posti auto su due livelli: piano terra e interrato.


Il parcheggio gratuito davanti al centro commerciale di Ponte a Greve si trova vicino all'uscita Firenze Scandicci della A1 e alla Firenze-Pisa-Livorno.
A poche decine di metri si trova la fermata della Tramvia che in circa 15 minuti raggiunge la stazione di Santa Maria Novella.

Questo piccolo parcheggio gratuito si trova proprio all'uscita di Firenze Certosa della A1 e della Firenze-Siena. Il centro storico di Firenze si raggiunge col bus n.37 in circa 20 minuti.

Questo grande parcheggio gratuito si trova in una zona tranquilla residenziale collegata al centro storico della città dai bus n.36 e 37.
