Europe with a Difference

From the sleek Eurostar, which whisks you through London before emerging from the Channel Tunnel into the French countryside, to its efficient rail network, Europe is seemingly tailor-made for rail travel. As you enjoy a smooth ride into the heart of your destination, luxuriating in the ever-changing views that roll by your window, it's hard to deny that travelling by train offers a different way to explore.

See more

Seeing the world is one of life's gifts, and we think a holiday is about more than just the destination - there's something magical about a journey by rail. Watching the world go by, as you travel to the heart of your destination. Luckily, that's our specialty. Our collection of holidays includes iconic railways, steam-hauled heritage lines, and sleek high-speed services, each memorable in their own way.

Do more

Whichever destination you visit, you'll discover must-see landmarks and popular attractions, as well as some off-the-beaten-track gems. We bring your holiday to life with memorable experiences that give you a deeper insight into the places you visit; gaze upon the mighty Matterhorn, visit the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa, or relax and sip wine at a rural French vineyard. There's no chance of an empty photograph album at the end of your trip!

Discover more

Free time is built into every holiday, so you can hunt out that off the grid restaurant, or just let your feet lead you down an appealing side street. Each place you stay is hand-picked to put you in the perfect spot with plenty to discover on your doorstep. You can relax with new friends over good food at the end of each memorable day and share your stories - that's the beauty of travelling with a group.

Italy is famous world-over for its art, gastronomy, and classical cities, and on our rail holidays, we showcase the best of its sights, sounds, and tastes. Explore the worldclass cities of Rome and Florence, discover charming port towns which sit in the shade of colourful lemon groves, soak up the serenity of stunning lakes, and sample delectable local wines against the striking rural backdrops of world-class vineyards.

  • Travel over beautiful bridges that cut across incredible lakeside and valley scenery on the breathtaking Centovalli Railway. This historic line originally opened in 1923 and takes passengers on a wonderful journey from northern Italy into Switzerland.
  • Sightseeing in Italy is truly second-tonone. Immerse yourself in history at the ancient Colosseum in Rome, fall under the spell of the 'Floating City' as you explore the narrow lanes and grand canals of Venice, and marvel at the stunning villas that line the azure shores of Lake Como.
  • Italian cuisine needs little introduction, and with free time built into each itinerary, you have plenty of time to sample some delicious Italian classics for yourself. Try Arancini - rich, deepfried stuffed rice balls - in southern Italy, or grab a slice of Neapolitan-style pizza in its birthplace of Naples.
