Location & Parking


Tours depart from inside the former Hotel Ponce de Leon's Rotunda located at 74 King Street, St. Augustine, FL 32084.


Founded in 1565, the City of St. Augustine town plan was originally laid out in the late sixteenth century for foot traffic, for walking.  That's the reason the streets are narrow, many one way, with many streets having overhanging balconies. Due to the narrow streets, parking in downtown and downtown neighborhoods in St. Augustine has always been at a premium.

Parking lots are located throughout the downtown area and on-street parking is available in may areas. Some areas require payment for parking with an pay-station and others with meters. Parking in these areas is enforced 8:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Saturday, excluding national holidays. Rate: $1.50 per hour

The closest metered parking is one block from the Main Entrance, 74 King Street on Granada Street behind the Lightner Museum.
