Those who live in a big city know this well: the main reason for stress and confusion is attributable to the problem of parking. Especially in view of the holidays, finding parking becomes an arduous undertaking as you come across real traffic jams of cars and public transport, plus there is to be taken into consideration in the main Italian cities almost all the parking spaces in the center are payment, or reserved for residents.
On the occasion of holidays such as Christmas and New Year, parking becomes even more difficult and alternative solutions must be used to avoid waiting endless hours in search of the ideal parking which is neither too expensive nor too far from the place you choose to visit.
The most useful tips for parking in the city
Ask a local person for information. It sounds trivial, but the best way to find out where to park in a big city without going around in circles for hours is to ask a local.
Always pay attention to the allowed times. It is not uncommon for the car to be left overnight in a parking lot where the village market is held the following morning. At that point you may find yourself among the stalls to understand where the car went. Usually, it is in the parking lot of some garage, taken away by the city police. The bill? Fine plus withdrawal of the coachbuilder. Watch out for signs before leaving your car overnight.
Book online. Many large Italian cities have parking reservation services in the center, at the station or at the airports. It is an excellent solution for those who come from outside and do not want to crash to look for a parking just arrived. Certainly a little expensive, but it saves a lot of time.
Among the many alternatives, what we recommend is this last and valid solution. We strongly recommend that you make an online reservation for your parking space.
