Re: Rant: ZTL in Italy

Rant alert - no purpose other then venting.

as last year, due to corona, I could not make holidays overseas, we went couple of time to Italy - by car.

What we did not know about are the so called ZTL zones: Zona a Traffico Limitato

Unfortunately, fines arrive with quite a delay, so we kept driving into city centers, and have accumulated 3 fines so far. I fear more to arrive by post as time passes.

Has anyone else fallen into this tourst trap?

I know I should have known and all that. However, in Italy there are literally hundreds of signs in each intersection and these signs are easy to miss, in particular when you just other cars into the city center.

Also: does anyone know of a way to get a permit, similar to the Umweltplakette in Germany?

Funny rant from my point of view, always felt very relaxed there and never got a fine. Not even once. No "tourists traps", no random carabinieri BS. (maybe Swiss plates help lol)

But seriously, I can't wait for our next vacation in Italy, missed it a lot lately.

hahahaha, nothing related to covid. This is about making city centers more livable. This is about giving residents priority above tourists. So, only access to residents, delivery vehicles, buses and taxis.

This. Like TOTALLY.
