          How exactly do we drive to the hotel? I've seen that people have done it and that there is valet parking. I just know that driving in the area isn't ideal and can be very difficult, and it looks like it's in a ZTL area. We'll be coming from Milan Airport on a Saturday and will need the car unfortunately (covering a lot of land in a week). Thanks!
