Grand Tour of Italy by Train

Home to world-famous architecture, art and beauty, Italy offers a feast for the eyes to all of its visitors. Rail Discoveries has carefully crafted a variety of escorted holidays which tour Italy by train, with a series of excursions that explore the culture and history of the region. A Tour Manager meets all our guests in London at St Pancras International and escorts the group throughout the holiday, meaning that you can relax, never having to plan further ahead than the next sight or excursion. On many of our excursions a local guide also joins the group to share their in-depth knowledge of the region's history and attractions.

One of the most popular features of Rail Discoveries' escorted Rail Holidays is the sociable group atmosphere. Mealtimes are often included and enjoyed together, offering the perfect opportunity to talk about the day's events with your fellow passengers. However, you are free to spend your time how you wish; you can opt out of excursions if you would like to spend your time exploring independently or relaxing at the hotel. For more information on the accommodation, transport, meals and excursions that are included in each grand tour of Italy by train please read the itineraries that are listed above.
