Getting Around by Car

If you decide to come to Florence by car the following information may prove useful. Given its historic nature, the city centre is clearly not designed for modern traffic needs and vehicles, and getting around by car may cause some difficulties. The area of greatest tourist interest coincides with the ZTL (‘zona a traffico limitato’), a restricted traffic area controlled by a network of video cameras. If you need to get to pre-booked accommodation, inform the hotel in advance and they will pass on the details of your vehicle (number plate, etc.) to the local city police.
