Summer Tours

Summer is the perfect season in which to explore the sun-kissed beauty of some of Europe's most inspiring and memorable destinations by rail. As temperatures rise and the world bursts with light, warmth and colour, those long summer days are just waiting to be filled with adventures. Breathe in the heady fragrance of wild flowers carried on the warm air as you journey through Switzerland and Germany's Alpine meadows.

Explore with us some of the most picturesque towns and villages of France and Italy where the fruit of olive groves and vineyards that carpet rural hillsides ripen in the sunshine. Whether your perfect summer break entails taking in some of the best festivals, experiencing the freedom of the great outdoors, reclining on a beach or immersing yourself in the history and culture of somewhere new, a summer rail tour with Rail Discoveries promises a host of memorable sights, activities and experiences for everyone.
