Explore at your own pace on a self-guided touring holiday in Italy. Enjoy a rail journey from Bologna to Parma via Modena, and explore three cities which each promise a wealth of art and architecture, not to mention fantastic food and wine, or travel from Austria all the way to the northern city of Trieste.
Many of Italy’s remarkable metropolises are famous the world over – not least beautiful Venice, dazzling Florence and super-smart Milan – but the country is also home to many lesser-known cities equally worthy of your attention. There’s Bologna – home to the globe’s oldest university and some extremely fine eateries; Parma, both historic and delicious; and up-and-coming Modena, another paradise for food-lovers. And to spend time in Trieste is to get to know one of Italy’s most atmospheric and underrated cities. Discover all these and more on a touring holiday in Italy.
When it comes to touring holidays in Italy, we have some tempting options. Our rail journey through Emilia Romagna visits the architecturally rich and utterly delicious cities of Bologna, Parma and Modena. Or if you choose our cross-border rail journey from Vienna to Trieste, you will discover one of Italy’s lesser-known but highly attractive cities with an incredible cultural diversity.
