Starting on Monday, January 22, the taxis in Rome will be on strike from 8am to 8pm and conducting demonstration at the Circus Maximus. The ironic thing is…it won’t be hard to find the taxis. It will just be hard to find them actually taking fares around the city. This was preceded by demonstrations in Sicily that brought the island to a complete standstill. These same organizers in Sicily have vowed “to take the fight” to Rome…if you plan to head to Rome in the next few weeks, getting around might be difficult.
I wrote a post on how to avoid letting strikes ruin your trip. Sure, they’ll cause some problems, but they don’t have to ruin your trip or confine you to your hotel room. You can read that post by clicking here!
