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.

Highlights of Tuscany

Susan Gillard
5 stars
“We met our Tour Manager at St Pancras & were escorted, very ably, every day. Great seats on all the long distance trains to view the stunning scenery. Some 'down time' was factored in and was appreciated due to the exceptional temperatures in June '22. The hotels were comfortable and food good. We had a great room/view/balcony in Montecatini Terme, but others had a view next door's disused pool & no balcony. I would recommend to able bodied, active people.

“Brilliant but exhausting. It was not a restful holiday. Great hotels (except extra hotel due to rail strike). Rail travel well organised. Guide (Greg) was excellent. Very knowledgeable. Small group of only 7 so individual attention. Poland is an interesting country with varied sights and activities and can thoroughly recommend. Cannot understand why more do not book this trip. Trams and electric buses in the cities. The Salt Mines are incredible. Both Wroclaw (Vrots-waf) and Krakow are wonderful to visit. Good to learn about WW2 and the Polish Story. Magnificent churches. Don't miss the Fire Eating Dragon of Krakow!

“We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday with GRJ. The Grand Alpine Tour truly lived up to expectations with stunning scenery, good weather & a variety of traditional & modern hotels. We had an excellent tour manager John Grundy, who was the consummate professional in every sense. The holiday gave us the opportunity to explore many cities & rural landmarks, so we covered a lot of ground whilst also enjoying several leisure days where we could explore further at our own pace. Great food, company, luxury trains….the list goes on!

“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.
