The land of the Romans and the Renaissance, of food and
fashion and of myths and Michelangelo, Italy is an enigmatic mix of
fascinating history and culture. As the center of one of the first
true centres of human civilisation in the world, Rome makes for a
historical safari of ancient proportions. At its heart sits the
majestic Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre in the world and an
incredible reminder of the power of the Roman Empire. A short
distance away is the smallest sovereign state in the world and the
religious hub for the Catholic church, the magisterial Vatican
City. Deep within the tangled web of alleys and walkways that make
up Rome lies the babble of the Trevi Fountain, featured in the
classic romantic film, 'Three Coins in the Fountain'.
We've created a collection of Italian rail tours that cater
for every taste, whether your preference is to admire the
architecture that has made cities such as Rome famous, or you wish
to escape to the beautiful Italian lakes.
Effortlessly captivating and endlessly inspiring, Italy does
everything with flair - and we discover it in the most romantic way
possible, from its wonderful network of railroads.
