Getting to a parking garage inside ZTL zone?

by xdaliv

We will be driving into Florence-SANTA CROCE from Siena to drop off our luggages at our rented apartment before IMMEDIATELY returning to car to the rental agency.

I read one of the easiest way to get a ZTL permit is if one have to drive to a parking garage inside the ZTL zone.

How does that work? I only found 1 parking garage with advance reservation (+ZTL permit to access garage) but its too far from Santa Croce. There are other garage near Santa Croce (and our apartment) but no contact info. So how does one get ZTL permit to access those?

ANyone know any Santa Croce parking garage?

Please note before telling me not to drive (not an option):
1. staying in an apartment (owner unable to help to get ZTL)
2. only driving in ZTL to drop luggage/return car - garage is an option make it easy to drop luggage within ZTL zone. - other than that, its public transportation all the way in Florence.
3. we are a big group-with lots of luggages and baby gear. - trying to get as close as possible to the apartment to unload.

why not check with your rental car agency if you can return the car to them first and then have them drive you to your rental apartment or at least give you a one day ZTL permit to go unload and then return the car. ;-)

Imo, the best option is to drop the car outside the ZTL. If the hire firm can't organise transport to your accomm (contact them to find out) then take a taxi/taxis to your apartment.

Your accommodation provider is the person who could obtain the temporary tourist permit for you (luggage dropping etc) but clearly he/she has no intention of doing so. There is no compulsion for them to do so either, so if they do not want the hassle (and it will be a hassle) fair enough.

You cannot get a temporary ZTL permit yourself, as far as I know. Only accomm providers and garages can get them.

Dropping the car and taking taxi/taxis is probably the best option..and likely to be not much more expensive (possibly cheaper) than overnight garage fees.

We dropped our vehicle off inside the ZTL zone and all we had to do was notify our hotel, who took note of the vehicle registration and notified the appropriate authorities so that we did not get any nasty surprises in the mail. The way they explained it is that CCTV cameras record registration labels and those without permits obviously get fined, unless your accommodation provider makes the necessary arrangements on your behalf, as outlined above.
It worked for us! :-)

Unfortunately, it seems the accomm owner in this case is not prepared to help out (a pity, but there is no compulsion).

I see no other way of getting access to the apartment, other than by taxi. Entering the ZTL without a permit will certainly result in a fine.

The way to go is through the Car Rental Agency. You are paying them top Euro to drive one of their vehicles. They in turn should be willing to drop you off at your lodging within a reasonable distance from the car rental return drop-off. Call them and ask. Most international car rental agencies will do this for you as a courtesy. It also gives them another vehicle to rent for that day. :-)

Travel Tips for Florence

Take the Florentine Walk

by cmcard2

Florence is such a walkable city. Starting at the Dome, where one can always call home, as in base, is the best way to begin. Go inside the church, or clime either the dome or the Bell Tower of Giotto. See the Golden Doors of the Baptistry. From there walk to Oransmichele Church, which at one time was a granary. See the statues of significant saints done by Renaissance artists. From there walk to the Piazza della Signora, see the Palazzo Vecchio,and take in where the statue of David use to stand in front of the Medici Palace, find the spot where the monk Savoronala was burned. Take in the statues in front of you that are both gaudy but appealing at the Loggia dei Lanza. "Perseus with the Head of Medusa" is one that was fashioned by Cellini. One cannot miss the statue Hercules and Cacus, and the fountain of Neptune

Walk past the Uffizi to the Arno River. Cross the street, and see the view of the rowers on the Arno, and the shope of the Ponte Vecchio, which use to be apartments. Cross the Ponte Vecchio, and stop and see the statue of Cellini in the middle of the bridge. Crossing the river you can walk straight to Pitti Palace and the Boboli Gardens.

Walk back to the Piazza della Signora and make a right to walk to the Church of Sante Croce. You will know you are there when you see the statue of Dante looming over the square. Make sure to visit inside to see the tombs of Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, Foscolo, Gentile, Rossini, and Marconi. One never tires of this city. It is a place I visit each time I go to Italy.

Uffizi museum, definitly one...

by xaver

Uffizi museum, definitly one of the best museums in Italy, there you can find Giotto's paintings, Botticelli's paintings, Carvaggio's exc. in my opinion the only Venere of Botticelli makes this museum a must.
The ticket costs 5 euro and the museum is opened since 9 am to 6 pm.

Food Market

by contadina

The Mercato Centrale...including the food market.
Many people who i met had no idea this existed. It's a large arena with fresh fruits veggies and meats. It's such a treat if you are cooking your own meals while you are in Florence. At least walk through to experience the atmosphere if you aren't preparing your own meals.


by MStars

When you buy wine, a good chianti (chianti wines have the pink ribbon on the neck), look for the black rooster label. .. . i've been told it means that it's a good wine.
However, I have bought 10 - 13 euro bottles of wine to bring back with me to the States, and yet my all time favorite wine is the 1.98 euro (it's probably higher now) bottle at Coop.

A restaurant near Ponte Vecchio.

by Maurizioago about Pino's Caffè.

This is a tiny restaurant that can accomodate nine or ten people. There are some tables in a covered gallery outside though. The ambience is very simple. It is the right place to have a good meal after a visit to Palazzo Pitti, or if you aren' t far from Ponte Vecchio.

At Pino's you can find a good choice of food. Various kinds of pasta and meat are on their menu.

As far as I know this restaurants is opened only for lunch until april. Pasta ai quattro formaggi ( noodles with four cheeses) was very good. Arista (meat) with baked potatoes was very good too.
