How to access the Genoa LTZ

The municipality of Genoa has provided different types of permits to access the Limited Traffic Zones, let's find out which ones.

The electric cars are not subject to restrictions and, after communicating the license plate number and related badge, can circulate freely in all areas without time limits. There are, however, special permits and exemptions for:

  • first aid services;
  • cars of the armed forces;
  • disabled people;
  • residents;
  • car sharing vehicles;
  • doctors and veterinarians on home visits.

Hotel and garage customers can access all areas, with the exception of the Castelletto LTZ, by filling in the following forms: Customer access charge activation form and Garages customer access charge request.

Park in Genoa

All the cars that have not received the permit or have not filled in the form correctly must park outside the ZTL, so we recommend you to reserve a parking for your car with Parkimeter. If you arrive in Genoa or if you have to leave the city by plane we recommend Parking Parkmar Aeroporto, instead if your holiday will be aboard a beautiful cruise ship with Garage Ponte dei Mille you will not have any problems to board your car. In the city center, but not inside the ZTL you can choose between: Parcheggio granaldi located a bit outside the center but well connected to the highway; Parking Montegrappa located near Villa lo Zerbino; Danopark Parking a few minutes from the Arco della Vittoria or the Casa di Cristoforo Colombo.
