Rail Holidays Europe
The European rail system is unmatched in the world for speed, efficiency and comfort. More trains visit more places than anywhere else on the planet. Couple this with the exciting towns and cities, ever changing scenery and a thousand years of history that Europe has to offer and a holiday by rail is the right decision.
Europe is home to some of the world’s most renowned destinations. Your dream may be to visit Paris, ‘The City of Light’, and stroll beside the Seine or stand inside the Coliseum in ancient Rome, or relax in an outdoor café in the one of the prettiest areas in the world, the Cinque Terra in Italy. The challenge is try to decide which of the any number of fascinating cities, medieval villages and coastal towns in-between you wish to visit. The trains of Europe will speed you between your chosen destinations swiftly and comfortably. On board local or regional services, or high-speed trains like the Eurostar between London and Paris and Germany’s vaunted ICE trains your destination draws rapidly closer. Also enjoy scenic specialty trains like Switzerland’s Bernina Express, or The Flam in Norway.
Choose from our selection of tours to Europe’s most popular sights; perhaps the captivating scenery of Provence or the mighty rivers of Germany, the towering mountains in Switzerland or the sun-drenched beaches of Italy. We have a holiday by rail just for you.
