National strike in Italy Oct 2 sounds like it might be disruptive

Jump to last reply

I can't understand why there isn't more talk here about the proposed October 2nd strike in Italy. It's supposed to be a national strike affecting all local transportation, surface and underground.

Do these strikes fizzle out or is no one on Fodor's traveling about Italy on Oct 2nd?

We arrive on the 2nd into Venice and fortunately we have reserved a rental car for the drive to Verona. On Hellovenezia I saw that a number of the Vaporetto lines plan to suspend service that day with only essential lines running.

I guess I expected more of a concern about the strike. Are the strikes in Italy mostly rhetoric without follow through?

Thanks for any comments, Deborah
