The historic centre of Verona is a limited traffic zone (ZTL) from Monday to Friday between 1000-1330, 1600-1800 and 2000-2200, and between 1000-1330 on Saturday and Sunday.
Luckily, useful park and rides fringe the city. The nearest car park to the city centre is at Piazza Cittadella. If you're staying in a city centre, your hotel can arrange permission for you to drive into the restricted zone.
