ZTL (Limited Traffic Zone)
The whole area of the historical center of Florence (indicatively comprised between the nineteenth-century bypasses and protected as 'UNESCO' Heritage Site) is defined, for the purposes of mobility, as a limited traffic zone (ZTL). Within this area, circulation and parking are disciplined by special regulations.
For vehicles of non-residents, circulation and parking within the ZTL is prohibited during the following hours:
The ZTL is defined by a series of 'access points' which, besides being marked by special signs, are controlled by telematic access points that automatically detect the license plates of all vehicles passing through. Among the many 'points', there are some (those reserved exclusively for public transportation and emergency vehicles) that are almost always prohibited, 24 a day.
The hotel will communicate to the authorities the license plate of the client’s vehicle, in order to prevent any kind of fine for the streets in the surrounding area of the Hotel that are equipped with telematic access points when clients must check in and check out. However, the Hotel is not liable for other types of fines received in other areas of Florence. (ztl.comune.fi.it )
