There is currently no Italian national scheme, but regional as well as individual city schemes.
However, there is a mobile phone app that can tell you when you are about to drive into a camera enforced ZTL.
National exemptions for all ZTL:
Categories stated by law: public transport, vehicles for disabled people with a registered disabled persons badge.
Resident’s vehicles, private car park owners, public utilities, hotel guests, vehicles owned by shops or companies inside the ZTL, delivery goods, car sharing, home care, visiting doctors, night-time surveillance, artisans, funeral company, voluntary organizations.
We focus on our website on information for people from outside of town. There are also exemptions for local residents, businesses and other operators. Go to the website Accessibilita à centri storici for more detailed information, in Italian.
Tourists who have their hotel in the ZTL are advised to talk to the hotel about the ZTL, to avoid fines.
Special exemptions may be granted, if there is an important need to enter the ZTL when it is in operation. For example loading / unloading, couriers, commercial activities etc. Talk to the local police about it, contact details below.
Loading and unloading is allowed with a proper permit at times that are stated on the different permits.
Electric vehicles for delivery can enter after they have registered on the 'white list' for free.
