Hello, Our location is exactly in the heart of Florence. (Pedestrian area) If you are looking for a safe parking space we have an agreement with a parking agency that costs Euro 26,00 (Euro 36,00 for a Van) per day and is to be paid directly to the garage operator. The service includes pickup and return of your car in front of the Hotel. Parking reservation is not necessary. You are authorized to drive your car into the limited traffic zone and to arrive directly in front of the hotel. When driving to the hotel, lanes reserved for buses and taxis cannot be used, special cameras in Via dei Bardi and Piazza Pitti cannot be crossed. Please do not forget to communicate us your car plate number during your check in so that we can clear your passage under the limited traffic zone cameras to the local authorities. The passage under the cameras need to be cleared within two hours. To register your car the town asks the sum of 1 Euro. If this passage is missing you will receive a ticket from the police department. In case, to reach our hotel, you are using a GPS navigation system it will be better to insert these coordinates: 43.77023,11.252912. To drive a car in Italy an International driver's licence is needed: the licence will not be asked by the rental company but if the police stops you while you are driving they might ask you to show them the International driver licence. In case you don't have it with you they could withdraw your original licence and apply an Euro 200 ticket! The International driver's licence can only be obtained in your country of residence BEFORE your departure.
