Car Parking Discount for tourist staying overnight in Siena

Siena Parcheggi allows tourists staying at accommodation facilities in the city of Siena a discount on the ordinary daily rate to leave their cars in one of the parking lots that are closer to the historic centre (Il Campo, Santa Caterina, Duomo, San Francesco).

Those who stay at any accommodation facility in Siena can take advantage of a discounted daily rate of €25 in place of the ordinary daily rate (€35) or the hourly rate (€2).

It is a very convenient option for those visitors who reached Siena by car and then choose to experience the city on foot, leaving their vehicle in a parking lot nearby the ZTL (Restricted Traffic Zone) all day long (or for more than 12 consecutive hours). The size of the historic centre of Siena allows anybody to move easily from one point to another without using a car.

 

How to take advantage of the discount with the new QR Code

If your accommodation of choice is located within the Municipality of Siena, you can park your car in one of our facilities at the discounted daily price. As you enter the parking lot, pick up the ticket as a standard user. Upon your arrival at the hotel, ask the receptionist to issue you with the QR Code to be used at the automatic pay station as you pick up your car. The procedure is simple:

 

Insert the parking ticket into the automatic pay station

 

Hold the QR Code and move it close to the scanner from below

 

Upon reading (confirmed with a beep), keep the QR Code out of the scanner’s reach to avoid displaying the error message: "Invalid payment method"

 

Pay the required amount

 

Pick up the ticket to be used at the exit

 

After the payment, the car park pay station returns the validated ticket that must be inserted in the column next to the automatic barrier.

 

An alternative indoor car park in a convenient and economical facility

We remind our customers that Siena Parcheggi offers convenient and inexpensive parking solutions for both citizens and tourists at the railway station, with a rate of 50 cents for the first hour and €2 for the whole day. The “La Stazione” car park is endowed with a free escalator that climbs directly up to the Antiporto, near the ZTL, wile being well connected to the historic centre via numerous public transport lines, with a bus every 15 minutes.

 

FOR THE OWNERS OF ACCOMMODATIONS IN THE MUNICIPALITY OF SIENA THAT DO NOT ISSUE A QR CODE YET

As of March 2018, as agreed with the Municipality of Siena, trade associations (Confesercenti and Confcommercio) and tourist guides representatives, the new automated system allows those tourists who planned an overnight stay in Siena to take advantage of a discounted daily parking rate.

A QR Code will allow them to pay directly at any car park automated pay station instead of going to the "Il Campo" car park counter or paying the full rate and then ask Siena Parcheggi for a refund.

With the new system, any accommodation facility located in the Municipality of Siena is entitled to generate the QR Code through a dedicated internet portal, allowing their customers to pay the discounted rate directly at the automatic pay stations of their parking of choice near the historic centre (Il Campo, Santa Caterina, Duomo, San Francesco).

 

Below are the links to generate the QR code

For facilities WITHIN the ZTL https://sismic.comune.siena.it/login?codicePermesso=hotel

For facilities OUTSIDE the ZTL https://sismic.comune.siena.it/login?codicePermesso=hotel_extraztl

 

All the accommodation facilities that are regularly registered within the Municipality of Siena have been notified of the new procedure by the Municipal Administration as of June 2018 and provided with detailed instructions for registering within the portal.

We remind you that it will be no longer possible for your customers to ask Siena Parcheggi for refunds or to pay at the Il Campo car park counter. In order to take advantage of the discount, it is, therefore, necessary to use the new QR Code procedure.
