Directions by car to Florence Hotel Il Guelfo BiancoMin. reading
Hotel Il Guelfo Bianco is located in the heart of the historic center of Florence within walking distance to the main tourist attractions of the city. For this reason, visiting Florence starting from the hotel guarantees the possibility of moving comfortably on foot and easily reaching every city landmark.
For those traveling by car, the convenience of staying in the center of Florence and leaving the car in one of the nearby car parks is definitely a plus to enjoy a few days of freedom from the hassle of traffic and stroll peacefully among the city’s artistic and cultural beauties.
It is important, however, to take some precautions to reach the hotel by car without incurring unexpected penalties for some distraction while driving and for this reason we do not recommend setting the car or mobile car’s GPS once you reach the city center. but rather follow our instructions that will allow you to arrive without unexpected events and avoid receiving penalties.
In fact, often, following the directions of the GPS system, you risk not noticing that you are entering the lanes subject to transit limitations, monitored by specific cameras, ready to “catch” the unsuspecting driver at fault.
That said, to get to our hotel, you can cross the ZTL area without incurring any penalty, just let us know your license plate number at the time of your arrival, we’ll take care of the rest.
Anyway be careful not to incur other types of fines, such as, in fact, traveling along lanes reserved for buses and special vehicles, marked by the yellow line, rather than white line, most of the time also indicated by an explanatory sign.
To make sure you avoid these risks, when you exit the motorway, we recommend that you set Piazza della Libertà as the first destination in the GPS system. In fact, up to Piazza della Libertà you can follow the navigator without surprises. From that point on, however, avoid being distracted by the technology that in Florence does not go well with the peculiarities of the current traffic regulations.
!!! FOLLOW OUR INSTRUCTIONS BELOW !!!
Once in Piazza della Libertà, take Via Camillo Cavour immediately (if you come from the North it is easy and you can’t miss it, but if you come from the South you can currently find some street works in progress and with the construction site it is more difficult to get the right way at the first glance, so you have to follow the deviation signs placed by a genius who probably has never driven on his own and they can create some misunderstading). Pay attention to the large video-camera placed at the access gate to the ZTL (*) – and go straight ahead without any detours. Immediately after the third traffic light, on the right, you’ll get to our hotel. Do not be influenced by other routes that the GPS system should suggest to follow. Just follow these simple instructions, so you will be sure to arrive in a few minutes without any risk.
(*) The video-camera you will find at the entrance to the ZTL can be active (red light) or not active (green light). In any case, you are authorized to pass as you stay at the Hotel Il Guelfo Bianco. We remind you, once again, to tell us your license plate number as soon as you arrive at the hotel, to allow us to carry out the procedures required by law and to include your license plate on an authorized white list to avoid receiving a fine.
Unfortunately, if along the way you make a detour and drive through prohibited areas, other than those indicated, you might inadvertently get some penalties that go beyond the benefit reserved for hotel guests and it will not be possible to cancel the infringement committed as usual when you drive your car anywhere in the world!
