March 8 Transport Strike
A massive union strike will cause havoc in Florence and Tuscany on International Women’s Day (Festa della Donna) on March 8.
There will no ATAF city bus service on Friday except between 6 and 9:15 am and again from noon to 3 pm. Regional trains–apart from those which guarantee commuter service from 6 and 9 am and 6 and 9 pm–will stop running at midnight, March 8 for 24 hours.
Due to the strike, nearly all flights to and from the Florence and Pisa airports will be canceled.
