Discover Southern Europe, the Great Rail way

Italy, Southern Europe & Mediterranean

Those seeking a quieter holiday will find peace and solitude beside the waters of the Italian lakes or on the idyllic islands of Ischia and Sicily. Spain, Portugal and Morocco offer an exotic blend of cultures and flavours while in Greece we unearth the infancy of civilisation itself.

Aside from being the birthplace of Western civilisation and hosting a horde of magnificent cities, the countries around the Mediterranean possess an increasingly rare quality; respite. Even in the bustling cities there is an other worldly sense that no one really takes things seriously. Taxi drivers honk their horns at the traffic but they're not doing it out of spite, they just know it's what they're supposed to do and not doing so would be silly. As you travel towards the coast this semi-serious way of life fades away entirely. So long as there is food in your belly and good company nearby nothing in the world can disturb the Mediterranean summer.

“This was the first experience of river cruising but we would definitely do it again. We liked the fact that it was small scale. On board the accommodation was excellent and the was food was delicious and generous. All staff were charming, attentive and professional. The excursions were well planned with knowledgeable local guides.

“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.
