Italian cities are famous for their crazy drivers and double parking, and Milan is no exception! Street parking seems to be a bit of a free for all.

Pay attention to the rules such as not parking in front of driveways and loading zones, and not parking on days when the street will be cleaned. Hefty fines run up to € 60. Your car could be towed away and if you don’t speak Italian or have someone to help you, it could turn into a real pain in the *ss.
Tip: In case your car breaks down: call toll-free 116 for assistance.STREET PARKING
In the city center you can park in the areas marked by BLUE lines. You’ll need a blue “Sosta Milano” card which you can buy in tobacco shop or at the news stand. You scratch the month (“mese”), date (“giorno”), time in hours (“ora”) and minutes (“minuti”), and display it on your dashboard. In some areas there are coin parking meters and you must display the ticket on the dashboard. Chances are you may find a parking attendant in a green vest to help you.
