We want to travel by train from Livorno to Florence on Sept. 21st, but noticed this alert: expediacorporate.com/daily/edit/alerts/Augus… (scroll down to Italy) - which states that,
"September 21: 24-hour nationwide strike of local public transportation, including buses, trams, subways and local trains. Expect significant disruptions; confirm rental car reservations. "
Are Trenitalia trains considered "local trains"? I'm thinking I should book a bus ride to Florence and back via the cruise ship.
