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.

Lake Garda All Inclusive

Mr Michael Edwards
5 stars
“A brilliant trip combining visits by ferry to Malchesine and Simione with day trips to Verona and Venice. Enough free time to arrange wine tasting expeditions and to climb or take cable cars up mountains.

“We enjoyed our Italian Explorer tour very much. A big adventure for my wife Janet and I, our first visit to Italy. Yes, at times there was lots of walking and moving cases around as we travelled to our locations, but certain if we were on our own, we would not have seen as much. Admit, another day in Montecatini and Turin would have been good. Many Thanks to our Tour Manager Julie R, she was excellent, and to Everyone in our group. Keith & Janet

“A thoroughly enjoyable holiday. The resort was a little further from the town than we had anticipated, but to be honest we had no real need to leave the resort except on the organised tours. The food was plentiful and of good quality and choices. Staff were efficient and friendly. Trips provided very interesting insight into the history and culture of this part of Italy. Would recommend.

“Charles was an excellent tour guide. Loved Sicily, lots to see and do. The boat trip was a bit long and too much time stuck on Vulcans - captive audience. Hotel was good if a little tired - especially the bathroom, but food was really good.
