Discover Southern Europe, the Great Rail way

Italy, Southern Europe & Mediterranean

Those seeking a quieter holiday will find peace and solitude beside the waters of the Italian lakes or on the idyllic islands of Ischia and Sicily. Spain, Portugal and Morocco offer an exotic blend of cultures and flavours while in Greece we unearth the infancy of civilisation itself.

Aside from being the birthplace of Western civilisation and hosting a horde of magnificent cities, the countries around the Mediterranean possess an increasingly rare quality; respite. Even in the bustling cities there is an other worldly sense that no one really takes things seriously. Taxi drivers honk their horns at the traffic but they're not doing it out of spite, they just know it's what they're supposed to do and not doing so would be silly. As you travel towards the coast this semi-serious way of life fades away entirely. So long as there is food in your belly and good company nearby nothing in the world can disturb the Mediterranean summer.

“A busy tour with many varied experiences. Palermo’s amazing Norman churches and castle: drinks with the Countess after being shown around her palace: train journeys along the rugged coast : boating among the Aeolian archipelago: Taormina’s stunning beauty and Greek theatre: walking in the ashy snow and smelling the sulphur near the top of Mount Etna followed by a trundle in a metre gauge railcar round its base. All topped off with tasty Sicilian food and wine…
