Our first suggestion to move around Italy: the railway is faster, comfortable, and if you buy the ticket some weeks before your trip, it will be very cheap (20 – 50€).
Is much cheaper than train (5 – 20€) but it takes twice as long, or even longer.
If you have a car, and people to share the trip with, then it will be cheaper than the train. Remember to check the motorway tolls before you go.
Some roads in the city center, notably those by the river, are not accessible unless you have a special permission. Look for the ZTL signs, which indicate limited car access areas. Some hotels provide a permission to enter the center in the hotel area, ask your hotel if this is the case.
Both the Congress Palace and Sangallo Bastion are not in ZTL. Therefore they can be accessed without any special permission.
You can find a map of the city parking lots by checking the right boxes.
There is a monitored parking lot, right in front of the Congress Palace and parking areas nearby. Very little and sparse free parking, unfortunately. On street sides, white lines indicates free parking, while blue lines means paid street parking. When you park in blue lines parkings, look for a payment machine nearby where you can get a receipt. Put the receipt inside the car, visible from the outside.
