Hi - i wondered exactly the same thing - my first day in Rome on my first holiday out of Scotland and it's a holiday!!! Contacted Lonely Planet (I think) and they said everything will still be open - business is business - phew!

Hi - have just found the e-mail from Lonely Planet - banks, shops and offices are closed but restaurants, transport and tourist attractions are all available. Have a nice time.

My experience of May 1 was, that all services were available, but not as usual.

At the Airport, we had to wait for more than 1 hour for our luggage. Public transport did work, but it seemed that there was only one tram/bus on each line...

In the evening, there was no public transport available, no tram/bus arrived and everybody wanted to get a taxi ... about 200 people in Trastevere catched themselves on one taxi...

I'd advise you not to trust on public transport on May 1 and if you want to get a taxi, try it, you won't get one!

On May 2, all was normal, busses and trams worked as usual.
