Our car in gone in Modena, Italy!!!

Hello, we arrived very late in Modena with sleeping children and bags, we parked in a street that seemed fine as many cars were already parked there. Today our car is gone!!!! Had this happened to anyone? Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Has it been towed? Parking for residents only?

Call the police if you haven't already done so.

Call +39059 20314, give the plate number and ask if your car has been towed away.

First of all call the local police, better asking the help of your hotel if you do not speak Italian.

If the car has been stolen (it happens) call the car rental (if is a rented car) and ask for a replacement. Ask even what to do about the first car.

If the bags where still in the car call you travel insurance to better know how much is the expenses cap to buy back clothes and other things you need to proceed with the holiday.

Maybe the car was indeed towed, not stolen. OP's might never come back if that's the case since he didn't read the sign about restricted parking for non-permit holders.

At dawn on Wednesday, walking through the Piazza Duomo in Piacenza on way to the station, the market was being set up. A tow truck raced by and in moments went the other way with an ill parked vehicle hooked up. A swift process.

I have very little confidence that the whole theft thing had actually happened, but there is no need to park on the street in Modena. Two excellent modern parking garages, Centro and Novi Park, are located right next to each other and outside the ZTL zones; they offer spacious parking spots - huge advantage.
