Experience our Italian Lakes Tours

Lake Como has been drawing visitors to its beautiful shores for over 200 years. On this Italian lakes rail holiday we combine flower-filled gardens, lake steamers and mountain vistas with the prettiest Italian towns.

Our rail tour to Lake Maggiore is based in the pretty town of Stresa and offers the opportunity to really explore the Lake Maggiore area, from the delightful Borromean Islands to the spectacular heights of the Centovalli Railway. We offer a number of tour options for travelling to the Italian lakes by train to Lake Garda, many of which give you the opportunity to recharge your batteries at a lakefront hotel, with the sparkling lake as a backdrop. On our Lake Garda rail holidays, you can overload your senses with great local cuisine, fresh air, a mild climate and wonderful excursions to destinations such as Venice and Verona.

“Super Hotel, who looked after dietary needs very well, with excellent and friendly service. Well organised trip with a mix of free days and organised days well spread throughout the tour. Amanda Perry our Tour Manager was top class, looking after all of us and guiding us through our days out as well as providing great suggestions for the free days, and always being available to help. An excellent holiday all round!

Oberammergau and Lake Garda

“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.

Lake Como and The Bernina Express

“Excellent tour manager. Wonderful scenery through the French and Italian Alps, especially the Bernina Express. Hotel at the resort was OK and the room allocated was adequate. No shower which could have been a problem if we were less agile for a couple in our mid 70's. Excursions were very good overall. Programme could have been less cramped.

“Prior to departure we’d received telephone call and detailed itineraries from tour guide. However, due to last minute illness we were greeted by a new tour guide at St Pancras. Camille literally only had 18 hours notice and proved to be excellent. First evening in Turin, hotel was very good as was the food. Unfortunately we were told, together with 4 other couples, just prior to our arrival at our main hotel at Lake Orta that the lake view rooms we’d paid to upgrade to were not and never had been available that week due to a pre booked wedding. Disappointment was an understatement. Due to hotel being completely full we had no alternative but to stick with allocated rooms which were extremely dark and at back of hotel. At the start of our holiday this had a massive impact on our enjoyment. However, purely down to Camille and her handling of the situation with the hotel and Great Rail Journeys we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Despite some last minute changes to the itinerary all trips were well organised with plenty of free time to enjoy the beautiful lakes. Special mention is needed for Alberto, the owner of Hotel Bocciolo and all his team who were absolutely charming, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Regarding the food, we would describe it as simple but nicely cooked. Breakfast was exceptional! Great Rail have subsequently apologised and are in process of refunding cost of upgrade together with a goodwill gesture. We have booked another trip with them.
