If you decide to come to Florence by car, or rent a car to move out of Florence, the following information may prove very useful.Given its historic nature, the city center is clearly not designed for modern traffic’s needs and vehicles. The area of greatest tourist interest coincides with the ZTL (“Zona a Traffico Limitato” or Limited Traffic Zone), a restricted traffic area controlled by a network of video cameras. Since Florence’s historic center is a UNESCO Heritage Site, it makes sense to protect it in this way and limit the amount of traffic in the historical center.
