Spring is the perfect time to travel. Climates are temperate, flowers and trees are in bloom, and everything seems brighter and cheerier. Welcome spring with a rail trip through Europe’s capital cities by high-speed and regional trains, to the peaks and valleys of Switzerland aboard the country’s scenic touring trains, across the Canadian Rockies aboard VIA Rail’s Canadian, or a USA rail-cruise vacation to sunny getaways in the Caribbean.
