And so there is a transport strike in Italy... most Italians would comment:
"Where is the news?". Strikes have nowadays become part of our culture
and way of life. Not that Italians are happy with strikes but, as with
most other things "ci arrangiamo" (we do the best we can).
For you, as a traveler to Italy, it might be important to be aware of any
transportation limitations that might affect your trip. We will
post to this web page any strike information that we have. Bookmark
this page and visit it often... if you are getting ready for Italy you must
learn how "arrangiarti"!
Note: the fact that a number of workers are on
strike does not mean that you are necessarily grounded. Call the reservation
office where you bought the tickets to obtain detailed information. Often
only workers from a specific labor union within a company will go on strike,
and thus you might not be affected at all. Crazy Italians, huh?
Disclaimer: we'll do our best to present you with
current and accurate information, however you must know that strikes can be
cancelled or shifted without notice and at any moment. The information above
is provided on an "as is" basis, and your use of this information is at your

encourage you to verify any strike information that might interfere with
your travel plans with your ticket office or with your carrier.
