Remember all Italian strikes are subject to change at the last minute! You will not be abandoned, by law a skeleton schedule must run. Book a strike proof train.
Left up so you can get a general idea of how different areas handled the general strike. Of course this is only an example. (We've noticed a new trend lately by Italian railway/transport worker unions. They don't seem to like the predictability of the below and have now started causing a slightly more irritating stance. Where each city chooses when they will strike, no more in unisom. Can be as far out as a week from original date. We will conquer this.)
