Limited Traffic Zone (ZTL)
Florence’s city center is a Limited Traffic Zone (ZTL), which means that access to it is restricted, depending on the time of the day, day of the weak, season, etc.
The access to this area is marked with a traffic light:
Green Light = access is permitted
Red light = access is not permitted.
CCTV is installed, taking pictures of all vehicles that enter the ZTL and their plate numbers. Cars with a special permit to enter the zone, which only residents can get, are listed in the ZTL database. All other vehicles entering the ZTL when the light is red will get a fine.
In agreement with the local Police station, the fine will be cancelled if you reach one of the three parking spaces listed here within 3 hours of your access to the ZTL, upon which the staff at the parking will register your car in the system, instantly legalising your entrance into the ZTL.
