Milan is the second largest Italian city by population with almost a million and a half people, preceded only by Rome. Located in Northern Italy it is the true economic capital being home to the Italian stock exchange. Milan is also one of world capitals of fashion, along with Paris, London and New York, as well as being the only Italian city to have been awarded the title of Global City.
Milan is a city full of events, monuments, museums and theatres, with something for everyone all year round, during the Fashion Week or even during one of the many salons organised at Fiera di Milano (Trade fair of Milan), which is Europe's main exhibition centre.
Do you want to park in Milan? It may not be as easy as you think. Despite being very large, Milan is also very crowded, always active and vibrant, being animated by so many residents and tourists. Both during on weekdays and at weekends, getting around Milan by car can be really stressful, but luckily Parclick has something practical and convenient for you!
Given the vast number of people and vehicles that increasingly populate the streets of Milan, it's no wonder that every time you search for parking space, you turn up at your appointment at least half an hour late, a delay that considerably increases as you get closer to the city centre. If after so much stress and wasted time you can see a free car park, it remains to be said that you can freely park your car there, since most parking spaces in public streets are reserved for residents (yellow lines), or are pay-per-use (blue lines).
Getting around Milan is further complicated by several factors; first of all, numerous roads are exclusively dedicated to public transport (trams), and are marked by a sign that is easy to miss if you are committed to searching for a parking space. In addition, during certain days of the week you cannot park in the street at night so as not to obstruct road cleaning works. As if this were not enough, in addition to pedestrian streets and possible roadworks, the centre of Milan has had a so-called Area C in place for numerous years. This is actually a rather large Limited Traffic Zone (ZTL), which requires anyone wishing to access it to purchase a daily ticket granting permission for one vehicle of 5 euro. Even after accessing the Area C with daily permission, there is still no guarantee of finding a parking space, but rather this only increases the risk of accidentally entering one of the no-entry to private vehicles streets. In this case, or even by accessing Area C without the corresponding permission, you'll most likely receive a hefty fine. But all this can be easily avoided by booking your parking space in Milan with Parclick!
