If You Can't Do the Time: My Vicenza Pedestrian Zone Ticket

Jump to last reply

Well, my ticket arrived yesterday for driving in a pedestrian zone in Vicenza way back in September. Guilty as charged. I knew it would come. I was just surprised that it came so soon.

There is a big, well-marked parking lot more or less behind the Teatro Olimpico. You make a very hard left to get into it. If you make a soft left, you find yourself blithely driving down an empty street (the first empty street you have been on in Vicenza). Your suspicion that you might have ventured into a pedestrian zone is confirmed by the terror on the faces of the pedestrians themselves.

So the ticket was just over 100 euros, and there are instructions for paying in English, though the ticket itself is in Italian. As a percentage of the cost of the trip, the charge is minor. As an incentive to not driving again in Italy, it's a pretty good kick in the pants.
