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 trip was excellent in general with only a few, yet minor observations. Firstly our guide was particularly warm and friendly accommodating 25 guests as much as was humanly possible. It for future trips could I suggest that potential travellers are given some more idea of the terrain they are likely to experience and that there is a need to transit on foot between stations. It would be a shame if the holiday is spoilt due to mobility issues. Please also reiterate but stronger the need to manage one’s own luggage. We loved our hotel room and the trips and enjoying this with such a friendly group of people.

“A very good holiday, though we faced several set-backs throughout the week. I fully understand the need for coach travel, but was very disappointed by how much there was - how often and how far. I don't like coach travel, which is why I was looking forward to a rail holiday. This should be made clear in the advert before booking. Take care when booking hotels in London. Our first hotel was only just OK - small room and double bed not accessible from both sides. They were unable to supply me with a wash basin plug, and I had to stuff a towel corner into it to contain the water. The hotel at the end of the holiday was lovely, but being on the third floor with no lift was not ideal. Your staff must only tell people facts! The rule in Italy at the time was to use FFP2 masks. One person in our group said she had phoned to enquire what this was, and had been told any mask would probably be OK. This was not true, and on one occasion I gave her my spare one as they would not allow her on the boat with a standard cloth mask. I had similar issues when I spoke to one person on the phone who gave me answers about covid rules such as "I think that will be OK" and "I would have thought so". Most of your staff have been excellent, and I have spoken to many of them. I was told this particular person may have been a new starter. But they must not guess at answers! It can lead to problems.
