ZTL & PARKING INFO
The Grand Hotel Croce di Malta is located in a ZTL Area. ZTL stands for Zona a Traffico Limitato, meaning Limited Traffic Zone. It is an area of the city centere that is closed to non-residential traffic. The ZTL functions like the EasyPass system in the United States. Car access is controlled through cameras and if you don’t have a permit to drive in the restricted traffic area, the cameras will record your licensce plate and you’ll receive a heavy fine, even if you are driving a rental car.
How to avoid fines?
You have to cross the ZTL area to reach our hotel and the only way not to be fined is to communicate the licence plate number of the car you are driving at the hotel counter upon arrival. Thanks to a digital system, the receptionist, will authorise you to drive in all areas of the city, even in the ZTL restricted traffic area, without incurring problems and penalties for the entire duration of your stay.
Not sure where to park your car?
You have two options: blue lines or white lines.
You can find them both around the hotel, but it works differently depending on the colour: if you find white lines, parking is free except for when there is a road sign next to the lines a road sign that shows a, showing possible duration, for example 1 hour ( 1 hour) means the car can’t be parked in that position for more than an hour. Where the blue lines outline the parking lots, you will need to pay
according to the parking rules on the signpost but if you are staying at the Grand Hotel Croce in Malta you will be entitled to a special price for parking: depending on the time of year, if you pay the daily rate to the receptionist and communicate your car licence plate, the desk will issue you a special permit and you will pay just a few euros.
You can leave your car in all the blue lines of the city and for that day. Important note: parking authorization
The parking authorisation.
Parking authorisation issued by the reception is valid only for the day indicated on the ticket. So, if you have to leave your car in the same blue parking lot for several days, you must remember to renew your parking permit EVERY DAY.
Request a permit that covers the entire duration of your stay, including the day of the departure.
Choose the comfort of a private transfer. Not all our guests are interested in rental cars, so once they land in Pisa or Florence airport,
they’re looking for an easy way to reach our hotel or vice versa: we provide private transfers from and to the Grand Hotel Croce di Malta.

What is the best way to reach them?
Undoubtedly by train so you will, in order to avoid traffic and parking problems. Montecatini Terme has two train stations: Montecatini Terme/Monsummano and Montecatini Centro. The second one is just few minutes from the hotel: 8 minutes on foot (the solution we suggest if you don’t have heavy bags to carry), 5 minutes by car. For the timetable, just check the Trenitalia website https://www.trenitalia.com/, or even better, ask reception to print the timetable for you.
