Did you know that rail holidays are in our DNA? Citalia began life as Compagnia Italiana Turismo (or CIT) in 1929, brought to life by the Italian State Railway as a way to connect UK-based Italians to their homeland.

Summer holidays, family reunions, Christmas and New Year - it was our mission to make sure that Italians were never too far from the country and people they loved. We even introduced a train route called the Napoli Express, which ran from London Victoria to Naples via Rome.

And although we've had a couple of name changes over the years, we've always stuck close to our Italian heritage. And that goes for rail, too. We can build a rail holiday that perfectly suits your needs - whether that's a city hop between Venice, Florence and Rome, or a grand Italian tour from London that skips the fuss of airports completely.
