Parking in Milan
If you will be driving your Milan car rental in the city, you will need a blue ‘Sosta Milano’ card in order to park on the streets of the city center. These cards can be bought in any of the tobacco shops. Parking spaces available on the streets are marked with blue lines. Be careful not to park in loading zones or in front of driveways. Illegal parking fines can be up to 60 Euros. Parking should also be avoided on the streets that are scheduled to be cleaned on that day.
Your ‘Sosta Milano’ card must be displayed on the dashboard, showing the month (messe), date (giorno) and the time in hours (ora) and minutes (minuti). Sometimes there are parking attendants to offer assistance.
Within Milan there are parking garages that can be used. They are indicated by a square blue sign with a white ‘P’. The following parking garages are available:
- The Via Bagutta, nearby San Babila
- The Piazza Diaz nearby Duomo
- The Via Cerva close to San Babila
- The Pisani at the Milan Central Station
- The Piazza V Beccaria close to via Large
- The Via S. Pietro all’Orto close to Corso V Emanuele

Driving in Milan’s city center may be daunting, but having a rented car to explore the countryside can be a wonderful experience. The Lombardy region is know for offering the finest wine and Italian food, and is a wonderful region for driving. Drive out to Lake Garda or LakeComo and explore the lakes by boat. At the lower sections of Lake Como there is the charming town of Bellagio, which is a medieval marvel. This is just one of the many small towns that feature colorful boutiques and a variety of restaurants.
