Cars higher than 1,85 meters cannot pass through the tunnel leading to the parking. Please I can’t give you the confirmation from now but I need to ask it to the owner before. There are only limited places guaranteed and I can send you a confirmation only after asking for it at the owner.
The owner of the garage will give you a special permit of transit in Ortigia and parking at the garage during the traffic limited area. You should give the registration document of your car and your driving licence to the owner of the garage upon arrival.The car pass is retroactive (you will not have any document it’s a kind of registration to do at the police station by the owner) so you can drive to the garage/apartment even if you will arrive during the time restrictions.
IMPORTANT Please bear in mind that we don’t have any business with the garage and so the only thing we can do and we will be happy to do is to introduce you to the owner and give you the right information as wrote in this e mail. Any contact and responsibility then is between you and him, we are only a mediator.
