You can park anywhere for free, but keep in mind that parking is not allowed in bus loading areas, fire zones and in all non-parking areas. Accessible parking spots are available throughout the city, but Naples Pier and 12th Avenue South are the most suitable parking areas for visitors with disabilities. Parking in Naples is free, except in beach areas and hotels. The downtown area of Fifth Avenue has two free parking lots for your convenience.
Depending on the neighborhood, you might be lucky enough to have your car parked for a few days, but it's not worth the risk. Parking permits for beach areas are available to full-time residents or part-time property owners of Naples or Collier County. Conveniently located near the entrance to the parking area, these machines accept coins, Master Card and Visa. The city has two public parking lots that allow overnight parking, one that is free for everyone and another exclusive for residents and city owners who have a valid beach permit.
