Italian train strike July 21 & 22, 2018

A 24-hour national train strike has been announced for Italy from 9pm on Saturday, July 21st, to 9pm on Sunday, July 22nd. Not all trains are expected to be affected by the strike (Italy’s premier high speed Frecce trains as well as the trains connecting Roma Termini station and Fiumicino airport will be unaffected).

A toll-free number has been set up for information regarding the strike and will be operative starting at 3pm on Friday, July 20th, to 11pm on Sunday, July 22nd. The number is: 800 892 021. I wouldn’t expect to find English speakers on the line so it might be best to have someone that speaks Italian call for you. My personal experience is that these help numbers aren’t very helpful (*sigh*).

I definitely recommend reading my previous post about Italian train strikes here.

Safe travels,
