Italy by Rail

If you have more than one destination in mind, train holidays in Italy provide a relaxed and scenic way to get around the country and see its many sights. Italy’s modern high-speed rail network links the major cities, while smaller towns are reached by slower local trains which offer some of the most picturesque journeys.

You can even travel to Italy on the train by taking the Eurostar to Paris, then on to Milan or Turin. For a truly stylish way to travel there’s always the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, where the journey from London to Venice really does become part of your holiday.
