The ZTL (Restricted Traffic Zone)

Updated 13th November 2017

 

The ZTL (Restricted Traffic Zone) 

Siena is the first town in Italy that chose to restrict vehicular traffic within its historical walls.
Since 4th July 1962 parking in piazza del Campo has been forbidden and since 11th July 1965 the historic centre has been closed to traffic. These two  innovative schemes represent a teaching example both for Italy and all other countries.

  • Access, driving and parking within the ZTL are limited to particular motorists and vehicles categories while restricted to others
  • The entry gates to the ZTL are marked with street signs and camera monitored. Vehicle access is being monitored 24 hours a day by an electronic boundary system which provides the immediate automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) and checks whether vehicles are authorized or not. Unauthorized vehicles will immediately receive a fine ticket  (the fine varies from € 81,00 up to € 326,00 with additional processing fees)
  • The ZTL covers the whole historic centre. The whole restricted traffic precinct is split in three areas: a main ZTL zone which contains a ZTL A zone and an historic Y zone with different driving and parking modalities. The Y zone is exclusively pedestrian
