Parking in Florence | Casa Rovai b&b
The first thing that my guests ask me on the phone is: where can I park in Florence? Are there free parking spaces in Florence? How can I do with the ztl, can I come to Casa Rovai b&b without taking tickets?
Today we will talk about this in our blog: where to park in Florence and how to reach Casa Rovai b&b without taking fines.
Sometimes the fear of parking in Florence and circulating in ztl is so much but there is no reason! Of course, we must be careful not to take preferential lanes reserved for buses, ambulances and law enforcement or not to pass with the red light, but this is only the “road code”, it has nothing to do with registration for access at the ztl.
To park in central Florence and have the authorization to enter ZTL is sufficient to reserve a parking space in our “guarded garage” next to the B&B and upon your arrival the staff will complete the paperwork in order to get the entrance and traveling permit within the ZTL so that you have been allowed to enter the restricted traffic area, that’s all. Important: if you do not intend to park in the garage DO NOT ENTER IN ZTL.
But let’s see in detail where to park in Florence and low-cost solutions:
Parking in Florence (city center)
The garage of Casa Rovai
It is undoubtedly the most convenient and economical solution in the center of Florence, it is next to the b&b and has a cost of 0.75 euros approximately per hour (minimum 24 hours for a total of 18 euros) including registration of the plate on the site of the ZTL then the authorization to access the restricted traffic area. The parking spaces are indoor.
To reach us you must enter the ZTL from the door that is located in Via dell’agnolo, so we recommend to set as the first destination “via dell’agnolo” and as a second destination our position that is “via fiesolana”. Arrived in Via dell’agnolo you have to go all the way and turn down in via Verdi, continuing straight you are a traffic light and the posts on your right, go straight on keeping right on via Fiesolana, after a few meters you will be arrived.

Parking of Sant’Ambrogio
In Piazza Annigoni 9, there is a parking managed by the municipality in the city center, just 5 minutes from Casa Rovai. It is located near one of the oldest historical markets and has parking on several floors. The cost is 1 euro the first hour, 2 euro the second hour and 3 euro from the third hour divisible in half an hour.

Parking on the street in the center of Florence, upon payment
Although these car parks are 15-20 minutes walk from the historic center are a good low-cost solution for your pocket. Be careful, however, to park only on the blue stripes as the white-striped parking lots are reserved for residents and yellow for the disabled.
Make sure you have checked the day on which the “street cleaning” is carried out, otherwise you will find a good surprise on your return, in fact, you will no longer find the car.
Where to find parking along the way:
- Lungarno della Zecca Vecchia, 15 minutes from Casa Rovai
- Piazza Beccaria, 10 minutes from Casa Rovai
- Lungarno del Tempio, 20 minutes from Casa Rovai
