General strike on March 8
We just learned that several Italian trade unions have announced a general strike for the entire day on March 8th.
This affects both the private and public sector. As such, the Uffizi Gallery and connected Palatine Gallery and Modern Art museums in the Pitti Palace will guarantee opening of the museums for the morning hours, from 8.15am to 1.50pm.
But the afternoon hours are not guaranteed, as it will depend on the personnel that adheres to the strike. The other Pitti Palace museums and Boboli gardens might not be open in the morning hours at all. Visit the Uffizi tomorrow knowing this, prepare for long lines or to not be able to enter at all.
