    Driving a Rental Car in Florence: Understanding ZTL Zones in Italy

    When preparing to tour Italy with a car rental, it's important to be aware of the Limited Traffic Zones found in larger cities including Rome, Florence, Milan, and Pisa, called Zona Traffico Limitato (ZTL). Most historic city centers, like Florence for instance, have ZTL's set up to reduce traffic congestion around popular attractions and museums, and also to help slow the inevitable deterioration of these areas caused by a near-constant influx of travelers each year.

    Drivers who enter a ZTL without proper authorization will be fined, and in most circumstances tourists and non-local visitors are not issued passes - only locals are permitted to drive through these zones. The fines for violating a ZTL boundary ranges depending on the city you're driving in, but on average is about 65 EUR, not including the "Traffic Violation Fee" (usually around 25 EUR per fine) charged by car rental suppliers.
