Holiday Transportation Schedules
Question: I found out April 25th is a Holiday. Will train and bus schedules be normal on April 25th, or will a special holiday schedule be in effect?
Background , I am planning a trip in the Tuscany area for April 20 to 25, (2-3 days in Florence, + day trips) but will be traveling to Venice on the 25th do I have any concerns?

It is a national holiday so do expect holiday schedule as far as transportation goes. But as a Monday, it will turn into a long weekend so as far as museums, restaurants and other services they should all be open and running for visitors!

Since it is a long weekend like Lourdes said above - that means that the Italians will be enjoying this holiday as well - so if you are going up to Venice be sure to book your tickets on the train in advance. Not only will you get a better deal $$$ but you will be assured a place on the train....things could get a bit busy ;-)
