I'm going to travel Italy by a motorbike. This is my first travel long distance using this kind of transportation.

  • What are the parking rules and norms in Italy (especially, in Rome) for bikes?
  • Should I use special parking lots, or I can leave it as long as it doesn't mess with other vehicles? How about on the pavement?

    This really depends on where you are going. In general motorbikes park for free, unless you park in a paid-parking area. Rome is parking anarchy in general so it'll depend on where you go and how long you stay for. In principle parking on the pavement is forbidden and you should get a ticket. In practice I have had this happen once in 15 years of driving motorbikes in Italy. I am not advocating breaking the law here, I am just sharing my experience. – JoErNanO Sep 23 '18 at 11:40
  • Um, tongue-in-cheek answer here, but does Italy actually have any parking rules or norms? Even if they do, I don't think they're ever enforced. Particularly the further south you go the more likely you are to find people parked wherever and however they really darn feel like it. Obviously I wouldn't suggest such behavior, but that's what you'll see from the locals. – cbw Sep 24 '18 at 14:01
  • When it comes to blue (paid) stripes, metropolitan police is happy about enforcing – usr-local-ΕΨΗΕΛΩΝ Sep 27 '18 at 22:07
