Monaco businesses face a challenge on Friday, June 16, as rail commuters from Italy struggle to find alternative means of getting to the Principality. A national rail strike by Italian rail workers will mean that no trains will travel between Ventimiglia and Menton during the day, and a number of scheduled trains from Menton to Monaco Monte-Carlo have also been cancelled.
There will be a knock-on effect on the Friday evening commute from Monaco to Nice, with the cancellation of the normally very busy 4:19 pm service. There will be no trains running from Monaco beyond Menton on Friday evening, and the 4:15 pm service to Menton has also been cancelled. Friday is the traditional day for Italian rail strikes.
