Need help re: train strike in Italy

Jump to last reply

We are scheduled to travel from Cinque Terre (Riomaggiore) to Venice on 13/9/15 changing trains in La Spezia (of course), Parma, and Bologna. According to the mit.gov.it website (http://scioperi.mit.gov.it/mit2/public/scioperi), there is a strike that I think may impact our travel. The "categoria" that is striking is as follows: PERSONALE SOC. TRENITALIA DI MACCHINA E DI BORDO DIR. REG.LE TOSCANA EX COMPARTIMENTO DI FIRENZE. I know that our trains from Parma and Bologna are Freccia trains and will not be affected, but our train from La Spezia to Parma is a regionale that is scheduled to go through (and make stops in) northern Tuscany even though neither La Spezia nor Parma is in Tuscany.

Does anyone know what generally happens to trains that are traveling through a region that is striking even though they aren't originating or ending in that region? How do I find out if our train will still run? The other alternative is to travel to Parma the day before and spend the night there before traveling to Venice the next day, but I would hate to lose a day in the Cinque Terre.

Also, does anyone know how frequently strikes are canceled vs. end up happening?

Thanks in advance!
