Strike action will affect transport in Italy, including air travel, on 25 June. Further strikes are planned in July.
On 25 June there will be a General Transport strike in Italy, including a 24 hour strike by Air Transport Personnel, and an 8 hour rail strike from 10.00am to 6.00pm.
There are also further strikes planned for the 8, 9, and 19 July.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
