Zona a Traffico Limitato (ZTL)

The sign you see below is a "Limited Traffic Zone" sign with the red circle meaning Do Not Enter.

In this case the sign is indicating that only taxis and other authorized vehicles are allowed to enter. Often times, there will be hours listed when the restriction is in effect.

You most always see these in the historical central part of town, or the "centro storico", where most Italian cities do not allow traffic because of the age of the roads, and the narrow-streets.

If your hotel is in one of these zones, you are often allowed to drive to your hotel (if you rent a car in Italy), but the hotel must clear it with the local police giving them your license plate number. It's a good idea to check with your hotel about parking, etc.
