ZTL Zones: Modena, like many Italian cities, has ZTL zones (Zona a Traffico Limitato) in the historical center. Access to these areas is restricted, and only authorized vehicles are allowed. Be cautious not to enter ZTL zones to avoid fines.

Road Signs: Road signs in Modena are typically well-marked and follow international standards. Many signs are in both Italian and English. Having a GPS or navigation app can be helpful for getting around the city and finding specific destinations.

Scenic Drives: The region surrounding Modena offers scenic drives, particularly through the Emilia-Romagna countryside. You can explore picturesque villages, vineyards, and rolling hills. The SS9, also known as Via Emilia, is a historic road that connects many towns in the region.

Road Conditions:  Be cautious of cobblestone streets in the historical center, which can be uneven.

Tolls: While there are no tolls directly related to the city of Modena, you may encounter tolls on nearby highways if you are traveling to and from the city.
