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.

Rome, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast
4/Nov
Mark Warrick
5 stars
“A wonderful holiday with a varied itinerary that included history, spectacular scenery and sunny beaches. Rail travel was smooth and easy and we had some wonderful meals. The hotel in Sorrento was great but its breakfast coffee was best avoided - appalling for Italy - but that was the only poor aspect of a really good time. Tour manager was wonderful.

5 stars
“We loved the train journeys, and the fantastic breadth of experience. The guides were excellent and the tour manager was brilliant. We can't fault the organisation. It would have been better to have taken the ferry to Tangiers and not Tangiers Port.

5 stars
“This trip offered something different every day. San Sebastián resort, Bilbao for Guggenheim museum, Rioja scenery and wine tasting, French coastal resorts, historical town as a base in the centuries-old Parador hotel which used to be a castle. Unfortunately the mountain railway is seasonal, so didn’t operate when we were there, but our guide made sure we saw similar scenery, and he did some lovely local walks with those who wanted.

“We had a great time travelling from top to toe in Italy. The holiday was fast paced but each destination was worth the visit. We had excellent tour guides, excellent hotels in good locations and a superb tour manager who was well organised and well informed.

Oberammergau and Lake Garda
16/Sep
Helen McComb
5 stars
“We had the tour of a lifetime. The Passion Play was mesmerising in every aspect, and was the highlight of the tour. Nonetheless, our Lake Garda stay was very memorable with a visit to the stunning city of Verona, followed by a wine tasting and meal at a winery in Valpolicella. A speedboat ride across the southern end of Lake Garda to Isola de Garda proved unmissable with a tour around the estate, gardens and time for canapes and drinks. I already miss the sheer beauty of the mountains in Italy and Bavaria. Our tour group were equally wonderful with our lovely Tour Manager Rosalinde Smith. Thank you for such an unforgettable experience.
