This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided cultural journey by rail
  • sumptuous art & magnificent architecture
  • fast & efficient rail journeys
  • self-guided walking tour in each city


Put yourself in the shoes of a ‘Grand Tourist’ from the 18th or early-19th centuries: fresh from a dalliance with Parisian high society and a spot of Swiss Alpinism, you arrive in northern Italy for the next stage of your adventure – an exposure to the astonishing cultural legacy (classical antiquity and marvels of the Renaissance) that only cities such as Turin, Venice, Florence and Rome can provide.

How beautiful is sunset, when the glow Of Heaven descends upon a land like thee, Thou Paradise of exiles, Italy!
Percy Bysshe Shelley – from ‘Julian and Maddalo’ (1818)

And now, as the modern-day traveller, you have all this and more spread before you: extraordinary Venetian palazzi, Brunelleschi’s Florentine duomo, and Bologna’s array of gastronomic delights – all discoverable in style and comfort from your train carriage and through our carefully compiled walking tours. Our notes are your ‘bear-leader’ – the equivalent of the tutor or scholarly guide from yesteryear – and all you need to do is come along for the ride, allow Italy’s untold riches to reveal themselves, and soak up la bella vita  for yourself as this rail journey across Italy unfolds.
