Trucker's strike - should I be worried?

Jump to last reply

I see on the Rick Steves website that truckers are threatening to strike on Aug 5. As luck would have it, that's the day my family and I are departing for Italy. The news report says that a strike has the potential to disrupt all public transportation and even car rentals.

I am counting on using trains to travel between cities (Pisa, Florence, Venice) and a rental car to tour around Tuscany. Now I feel like I should have a plan B, but I don't know where to start.

Have you experienced a strike while traveling and how did you deal with it?
