CASA MIRA PARASIO
Via Parrasio, 38
The home is located in Via Parrasio 38, in the historical center of Porto Maurizio, in the highest square of this medieval neighborhood, from where it is possible to dominate the whole town with a magnificent sea view.
Everything is walking distance: beaches and shops can be easily reached on foot.
My advice is to park the car and move on foot.
The nearest beaches are about 500m on foot using the various and panoramic stairs that start from the square towards the sea.
A convenient system of 3 FREE public elevators allows you to reach them in comfort.
Furthermore there is a FREE bus line, the A1 circular line, which connects every hour the various beaches of Borgo Marina and the shops in the city center with Piazza del Parasio, which stop is 30 meters from the house.
To reach the home by car, drive along the Motorway A10 Genova-Ventimiglia and, if coming from Genova, please exit at Imperia Est highway toll booth, in about 5 km you will be at home.
Please find below a Google map showing the fastest way by car from Imperia Est highway toll booth to Casa Mira Parasio, which address is Via Parrasio 38.
The house is within the Parasio ZTL (Limited Traffic Zone, or Zona a Traffico Limitato), which means that you can enter and exit with the car every day, but only during the hours:
Park is forbidden, but stop is allowed, as long as you stay within such timeframes.
Our guests are allowed to access all day long the ZTL and to arrive directly at home for unloading and loading luggage, limited to the days of arrival and departure. These days you are allowed to access h24, independently of the writing on the display.
It must still be given prior notice to the Municipal Police of Imperia for your departure day and the day of arrival.
If you give me your car model, the license plate numbers, the name and last name of the owner of the vehicle, and the arrival and departure days, I can take care of the communication.
Basically your plate number will be inserted in The Municipal Police Database that controls the access to the ZTL. Limitedly to the days of arrival and departure, this database "knows" that you have the permission to enter and exit the ZTL, so you won't get any fine.
Please note that this "pass" that I asked for you, is not a parking permission, but simply an access permission in order to arrive directly at home (which is inside the ZTL) for loading and unloading your baggage.
Then you will have to park your car outside the ZTL.
Motorbikes don't need any pass for entering the ZTL, so all motorbikes are allowed to enter and exit the ZTL at anytime. This means also that you can park your motorbike inside the ZTL in the specific parking areas reserved for motorcycles, so much closer to home (about 50 meters).
We suggest to park your motorbike in Via Achille Vianelli, close to street number 28.
The Parasio ZTL begins at Piazza Miradore (at about 750 meters by car from home), where at the intersection with Via Achille Vianelli you will find the information panels, the electronic display, and the video camera that controls the access.
The following streets are all within the ZTL:
Please note that ZTL is controlled by cameras at the entrance, and anyone who enters or leaves the ZTL outside of the permitted hours will be fined a fine of around 80 euros.
There are various options for parking:
All these car parks are not guarded.
All parking areas marked horizontally in blue are toll parking, which means that you have to pay for parking your car. After having parked your car, look for the nearest ticket machine, and then pay for the timeframe you need to park.
Now there’s a smart way indeed you can pay for the parking in toll public car parks with your cell phone or your smartphone, called Easypark.
The Municipality of Imperia aims to facilitate citizens and tourists in the payment of parking in the blue strips, providing an advanced service that will allow, among other things, to prolong the stop in a simple and convenient way, without necessarily having to go to the parking lot, but avoiding any possible penalties for ticket expiration.
The Easypark system is the easiest way to pay for your stay with your cell phone and smartphone. It's a completely free App, with an innovative and smart look.
HOW TO USE EASYPARK
Just a few simple steps to start using the service:
To activate, extend, end and pay for parking, you can use the EasyPark App, easy and intuitive, or access your personal area available on the site www.easyparkitalia.it, or use the interactive automatic answering service by calling 089.92.60.100 from the registered mobile phone.

Parking enforcement officers can verify the correct activation of the stop by checking the license plate of the car.
Here's the map showing the route of the FREE line A1, from Piazza Parasio to the Bus terminus in Borgo Marina (in front of "Bar Corsaro").
It's very comfortable to get and to come back to/from the beaches.
And here's the timetable
In the following map, it's shown the position of Imperia Porto Maurizio main bus stop, which name is "Pensilina", at about 700 meters from home
To reach the house by train, use the new Imperia railway station, which is about 3 km from the home and where every Intercity and Regional train from Milan, Turin, Genoa, Rome and Nice stops.
To get to the home from the train station, we recommend taking a taxi, which you can find out of the station: the price of the ride is around 10-15 Euros.
