Parking & ZTLs in Merano

Hi! We are coming for a daytrip to Merano from Bolzano in September, and we are traveling by rental car. We'd like to park our car close to the city center and then spend the afternoon walking around.

I'm always wary of ZTL in new cities in Italy—where is the one in Merano, and are there any recommended car parks that we could park our car for 5 hours or so where we won't have to cross any ZTL?

Thanks so much in advance!

There are ZTLs in almost every settlement in Italy, but they are no more of a problem than a one-way street. You already know how to look out for "No Entry" signs and not drive past them. You do exactly the same with the ZTL signs. See driventoit.blogspot.com.au

Don't rely on any maps that you find online. The local council might have changed the arrangements.

We plan to visit Merano with a rental car this summer, also. So I have the same question. Google maps shows these parking lots in Merano:

https://www.google.com/maps/search/Merano,+Province+of+Bolzano+-+South+Tyrol,+Italy+parking/@46.6662136,11.1467756,14z/data=!3m1!4b1

But I don't know where the ZTL area is relative to them. Hopefully someone will come along and enlighten us.

As per #1.

You do not need to know where the ZTL's are in advance. Just observe and obey the road signs and find a car park.

Generally speaking, car parks will not be located inside ZTl's as this would defeat the object of having a traffic free zone.
