Driving in Pisa with your rent a car from Sixt
While getting around Pisa with your car rental it is important to pay attention to the parking restrictions and traffic rules and regulations. Failing to do so could result in fines so we recommend to familiarize yourself with the local customs and laws before embarking on your journey. Here are a few basic tips to help you avoid some common mistakes.
- In the historic center (centro storico) of Pisa there is a strictly enforced Limited Traffic Zone (ZTL) for non-residents. Keep your eyes open for these signs because if you drive into this zone illegally a photograph will be taken of your car and you will be sent a fine. If staying at a hotel in this zone remember to give the reception your vehicle registration information as soon as you check in so they can register you for a temporary permit.
- While on motorways passing on the right is absolutely not allowed, not even on a three lane highway. When attempting to change lanes on a multiple lane road signaling is not always enough to ensure drivers will let you in. Before switching lanes look to see you have adequate room as most Italian drivers will expect you to wait for them to pass first.
- Posted signs will not be in English, know the Italian names of the destinations you are driving to.
Expect to pay at least two Euro per hour to park in Pisa and be aware many ticketing machines only accept coins. In general white lines on curbs mean free parking, blue is pay parking, and yellow is reserved.
- In towns the speed limit is 50 km/hr, 70 km/hr on secondary roads outside of towns, and 110 km/hr on the autostrade. Remember to keep you headlights on at all times when driving outside of city centers.
