has become a costly

is currently Euro 5

No ticket, instead, before 7:30am or after 7:30pm, and no ticket on Saturdays and Sundays.
Since January 16, 2012, the rules have been updated, with residents enjoying less exceptions. The involved area inside the Bastioni has been called Area C
, where C stands for Congestion Charge.
Euro 0 petrol cars, pre-Euro 5 diesel
vehicles and Euro 4 diesel vehicles l without particulate filter (DPF) are not allowed
into the center at all.
Motorbikes and scooters do not need any tickets, and do not pay
to enter the Area C. (Keep in mind, however, that you are not allowed to drive any Euro 0 or Euro 1 two-stroke motorbike anywhere in Milan.)
Don't drive in the central area anyway! The Sosta su strada
parking system is based on complicated parking meters
. If you really want to take the car, the best solution is to leave
it in one of the twenty or so guarded parking lots
in the downtown area.
Among the most central are
.:. Garage Meravigli
(Castello district), Via Camperio 4
.:. Garage Velasca
(Duomo district), Via Pantano 4
.:. Garage Rinascente
(Duomo district), Via Agnello
.:. Garage Augusto

.:. Garage Diaz
