Discover Southern Europe, the Great Rail way

Italy, Southern Europe & Mediterranean

Those seeking a quieter tour 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.

Andalucian Parador Experience
11 Jun 2018
Mr V Sayer
5 stars
“Although I enjoyed the tour overall and the trips were excellent, the tour title was slightly misleading. We stayed at only one Parador and the standard was not as good as expected. The hotel, is now dated and needs modernisation. There was plumbing problem which was never attended to, despite being reported to three different people in reception. The service was very slow at times, e.g. waiting forty five minutes for a sandwich. It was a wonderful Andalucian experience but not a Parador experience.
