Some of you might know and some of you might not know but Firenze has changed their parking Zones. It is not done by Quartiere any more more on this new system stated here.
We found this out the hard way by getting a ticket while parking by our kids school. We parked in Q4 area because we take our children to school there and live there, but we have been reassigned to ZCS 1 area. Great if I want to park on all the outskirts of the center city. This is not practical for us since we use the Q4 area to park for our children. All is not totally lost if you do have to use the area you are living in you can pay 30 euros and get it added to your parking permit. But it would have been nice if they told us this.
The territory of the Municipality of Florence – ZTL excluded – was organized in 5 Controlled Parking Zone (Zone a Controllo di Sosta – ZCS) parted in parking spaces reserved for residents (white lines) for disabled person with specific pass or specifically reserved (yellow line) and paid parking (blu lines).
The blue spaces are paying all weekdays from 8.00 to 20.00 except public holidays. The types of stops are indicated by traffic signs on site.
