This is another national holiday, May 1st marks Italy’s national Labor Day.
On this day, even more than the other secular national holidays, expect major museums to be closed and limited choices for public transportation. Italians are off work en masse and the weather is usually nice, meaning it’s a busy weekend for popular destinations throughout the country.
For travelers, this day would be difficult due the many closed stores. Regardless, any day on Italy’s Spring is nice to walk through the parks or villages.
