Parking regulations in Verona

The parking regulations in Verona are clearly structured. Yellow markings generally indicate an absolute parking ban. Blue markings indicate parking areas that are usually limited in time, often to a maximum of two hours. In the city center there are also traffic-calmed zones (ZTL – Zona Traffico Limitato), which can only be entered with a special permit.

ZTL zone in Verona

The establishment of ZTL zones has proven to be important in order to protect historic city centers from increasing traffic and the associated emissions. Although these traffic restrictions often arouse the displeasure of tourists and are sometimes perceived as a rip-off, they are an effective means of reducing the number of cars in cities. Illegal driving in these zones will be consistently punished.

It is important to know that if you enter the ZTL without authorization several times in one day, you will be fined separately for each offence, regardless of whether you were aware of the regulation or not. Such violations can be expensive, as parking tickets are now also sent to Germany with a minimum charge of 70 euros.

The cost of Italian speeding tickets depends on how quickly payment is made. If payment is made within the first five days, the amount is reduced by 30 to 50 percent. After the fifth day, the original amount is increased by the procedural costs. If the fine is not paid within 60 days, it may be doubled.
