Rome: Airport-Termini Train (Leonardo Express) Does It Run During (FS) Train Strikes?

I arrive (March 7) at FCO during an 8hr train strike. My hotel is 1 block from Termini, so this is my best and cheapest option.
I've heard and believe this train is normally except from these strikes.
Is this true? Regards, Walter

Yes, as far as I know the service is maintained also during strikes.

Thanks BATUFFOLINA, I thought so. Come to think of it in hindsight, you never hear of travelers posting about getting stranded either at the station or the airport.
Now I only have a 24hr public transit strike to deal with in Naples and a 4hr Air Traffic Controllers strike due to start 5 minutes after I board my outbound plane . Regards, Walter

Could you tell me how you know about the strike March 7th. My daughter's friends are visiting her in Florence at that time and it might affect their plans.Thanks

Hi Carol -

This website seems to be updated regularly and reliable for such information:

This is the Italian strike website http://www.trasportinavigazione.it/A...i/scioperi.asp
I always check both and 'seekitaly' is always updated and accurate plus in English .
