ParkingFlorence city centre is a ZTL zone which means a “limited traffic zone” and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras and access cameras (they will show either a red/green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reach their apartment are advised to contact one of the private garages in the centre (the one nearest the apartment you are staying in) and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify they need access for the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.

Pontevecchio was perfectly located and very comfortable, so much so that I have stayed there both my last 2 visits to Florence. From the windows you can see the ponte vecchio, hear the live musicians at night, and on Sunday mornings the scullers are making their calls as they row on the Arno. It is magical and completely comfortable and well equipped. Carina is pleasant, reliable, helpful; I have gotten very personalized service from her since 2006 when I rented from her the first time. My son and wife used her too. She hooked me up with a great wine seller where I had excellent tastings, wine, and a type of chutney made with wine. thanks Ann
