Italy by Rail - Escorted Holidays

With classical cities, tranquil lakeside towns, and laid-back rural landscapes, Italy is arguably one of the world's most romantic destinations. From the grand waterways of Venice to Rome's mighty ancient monuments, and Puglia's unspoilt, rugged coastline, our range of Italian tours fully immerse you in the sights, sounds, and tastes of this incomparable destination. With escapes spanning the length and breadth of the country, travel with us and discover authentic local experiences as well as free time to explore at your own pace; wander down enticing side streets, feast on world-class street food, or simply spend a lazy afternoon with a coffee and a book at a cosy pavement café. Or, opt for an all inclusive holiday and indulge in true relaxation, with all your meals and complimentary drinks included.

There's an option to tempt all travellers in Italy. Embark upon a grand tour of Italy by train and you'll have the chance to admire the contrast of rolling hillsides with historical landmarks in comfort. Step back in time in Verona, the setting of Shakespeare's most famous love story Romeo and Juliet. Or relax in the picturesque setting of Lake Garda, where you can enjoy some of Europe's stunning panoramas. Finally, the idyllic terracotta roofs of Tuscany draw many visitors to the strikingly pretty area, which is also famous for its gastronomic delights; it's the perfect place to for foodies to enjoy deliciously rustic Italian food, washed down with a glass of local wine.

“The holiday overall with the scenery was lovely . Although the journey from one place to another was long at times and the days long in travelling the scenery made up to it but I do think it could be explained more in the brouchures.

“We enjoyed the full experience from meeting Lyne at St Pacress to leaving her at same place, I think she made the holiday for us The euro star to Paris was comfortable and interesting. Then the trek through Paris went well. The Hotels both going and on return were first class. The organisation on our travels went well, the down side was rushing to get on and off trains with only 4 minutes with luggage, in furture may get the luggage package to save us the hassle
