Where to park in the main medieval cities?

Post dedicated to the request of my client Fernanda Ramos !! Traveling by car in Italy is ideal for who is not too concerned with schedule, who wants to make its own itinerary with more freedom or to visit smaller cities, however, one of the big problems for who is driving is parking! Especially in smaller cities where the streets are narrower, full of restrictions and finding a spot is almost impossible! Let’s go to our post of the day? Where to park in the main medieval cities? Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams!!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

Introduction

Thinking about the difficulties of parking, we have compiled a list of the best car parks in several medieval cities: close to the center, safe and where you can leave your car without any major concerns. But first, let’s explain a point to you. In Italy there are some parking options that we will see below. If you think everything is too complicated, understand here whether or not it is worthwhile to hire a consultancy specialized in travel to Italy!

Paid Parking

They are generally administered by the city hall or privatized and the daily rate is between 20 and 30 euros, it can be more or less, depending on the city and, in general, they are super safe. They are the most suitable …

Public Parking

Large open areas that serve as parking lots, but nowadays, cities with a large number of spaces in these places are rare; many cities have made these spaces pedestrian-friendly and the number of places cannot keep up with demand; one of the disadvantages is having no warranty in case of theft and there is no proof that you stopped the car there; sincerely: I do not recommend!

Private Garages

The daily costs, on average, between 60 euros and can reach 100 euros (check), mainly in high season. They are usually ‘neighborhood’ car parks and, in addition to the price, the disadvantage is that to get here you often have to go through the infamous ZTLs, and if they ‘forget’ to inform your plate when you arrive, you can get a ticket. Despite they stay in the heart of the city, avoid them!

Blue Stripe and White Stripe

  • The ‘blue stripe’ (white stripe) – with parking meters, you pay by the hour! The first hour usually costs one euro and the rest costs two. They are blue, demarcated bands that are usually on the streets near the center. As you can imagine: it’s not easy to find a place here!
  • In the white stripe (even harder to find a place!) You don’t pay, but it’s like finding a needle in a haystack! Picture this!

Tips

  • Prices may vary according to the distance from the main monuments and from the center to the Parking lots in the main Italian cities, it is often worth leaving the car a little further and taking a short walk, especially if the weather helps! ?
  • Try to make a reservation in advance, especially if you are traveling during high season: cities are CROWDED and parking is no different! Remember that not everyone accepts reservations, so get there early!
