Questions about General Strike in Italy May 6, 2011

Jump to last reply

I have read about a general strike in Italy that has been rescheduled to May 6, 2011. From what I read the local buses and trams will be involved. For those of you who know, does this mean a total stoppage of buses and trams or will there be abbreviated routes in place? How long will this last?

I will be in Rome on this day and am planning a Borghese Gallery tour that morning and a Vatican Museum Tour that night. I was planning on using the bus system for both, but a taxi may be my only other option as the Borghese is too far to walk. Walking to the Vatican Museum may be doable.
