Rail Tours in Italy, Southern Europe & Mediterranean

The Mediterranean and the Crux of Civilisation

Those seeking a quieter vacation 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.

Andalucian Explorer

“This was another outstandingly great vacation. It was full of wonderful experiences and unexpected sights.
Lake Como & The Bernina Express
Anonymous
“A well organised tour led by a fantastic Tour Manager. The base hotel was excellent being on Lake Como shores, on the main route around the island and within a couple of minutes of the ferry stages. The day trips were well organised and the day trip on the Bernina Express a major highlight. Highly recommend this tour.
