The UNESCO sites of Europe

Considered to be culturally or naturally important, UNESCO-listed sites boast international interest and are protected by the heritage body. At Great Rail Journeys, many of our tours visit these prestigious sites, allowing you the opportunity to explore some of the world's greatest monuments, landscapes and cities.

Why not visit the stunning Plitvice Lakes on our delightful tour of Slovenia, Croatia & Montenegro? One of the very first natural World Heritage sites to be declared by UNESCO, the sixteen Plitvice Lakes are connected by an incredible series of waterfalls and set in a beautiful 116 square-mile National Park. Alternatively, you could enjoy a visit to the picturesque UNESCO-listed village of Hallstatt on our tour of the Austrian Lake District, or visit two World Heritage Old Towns and the stunning listed city of St Petersburg on our Baltic Explorer holiday.

Further afield, the spectacular city temples of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom await, and our visit to them is a highlight of our tour of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong Delta. These proud monuments of Cambodian culture are internationally-acclaimed sites of religious and cultural importance, and superb examples of preserved ancient architecture. With many tours to incredible UNESCO World Heritage sites such as these, you can experience the world's treasures on your Great Rail Journeys holiday.

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.

“A very good tour exploring a beautiful part of France. Excellent tour manager and interesting day trips. The Novotel rooms were spacious and comfortable, and though there were occasional breakfast blips (how can a hotel allow itself to run out of standard black tea when it knows there are British guests staying?!), that did not mar the overall experience. My father had a lovely time too.

“Leaving by Eurostar remains a pleasure compared to a busy airport. First class rail travel between centres worked well. Good to excellent hotels en route. Affable small group and our friendly tour guide kept everything moving to schedule. Stunning locations.

“We really enjoyed our holiday in Austria, fantastic scenery, the highlight our holiday was the day we did the Sound of Music and the Austrian Lake District, the local guide, Trudy was so good, we had music from the film played in the coach and many of us sung along.

5 stars
“We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It visited some very interesting locations that were well integrated. The introductions were very good, especially the one on the canal trip. The visiting academic's talk after dinner came at a rather sleepy point when most people were not at their most receptive. We were sorry not to have had more free time in both Manchester and Newcastle to extend the context of the tour.
