Tour the scenes that inspired the great Claude Monet on our Gardens of the Loire & Versailles tour, including the bridge and Water Lilly pond that would prove to become the main focus of the celebrated painters work. This is after working our way through the stunning scenery of the Loire Valley, speckled as it is with ancient and charming French Château's, including the 16th century Château de Villandry and the Château de Chenonceau, complete with picturesque fountain gardens. Attend the internationally renowned 'Festival des Jardins' and view the latest in cutting-edge trends and landscape designs at this popular event, all before exploring the grandeur and opulence of Versailles Palace, formerly the home of French royalty. The Versailles' Gardens are equally breathtaking as the palace's jewel rich interior, with a series of mesmerizing fountain displays and canal structures interwoven amongst dramatic sculpture and fine-combed lawns.

Or perhaps enjoy a picturesque escorted tour through the stunning climes of Lake Maggiore and Garda in Northern Italy. The warm climate and unique lakeside conditions make for some stunning natural landscapes. Renaissance villas and traditional Italian village dot the hills, hidden away amongst the rolling hills around Sirmione. The area is also home to some of Italy's oldest and most celebrated gardens, including the colourful oasis of Sigurtà and Padua's Orto Botanico, the world's oldest remaining botanical gardens, having opened in its first iteration in 1545. Enjoy a cruise on the shimmering emerald waters of Lake Garda and explore the pretty neo- Gothic villa and exotic gardens of Isola del Garda, the lake's largest island and discover the alluring islands of Borromeo, set amongst the tranquil Lake Maggiore.

Our Fairytale Castles and Bavarian Alps escorted castle holiday takes you through the heart of classic Germany, exploring the Gothic spires that have inspired the likes of the Brothers Grimm. Discover classic Munich and the stunning natural landscapes of the Rhine Gorge, past verdant vineyards and looming Baroque architecture. Your holiday continues with a fascinating excursion to two of Europe's most beautiful castles, opulent Hohenschwangau and the iconic hilltop Neuschwanstein, both originally built by King Ludwig. All this and more is included on Great Rail Journeys' captivating selection of Castle and Garden themed escorted rail holidays.
