JOIN US ON A European Rail Holiday

From Spain’s Blossom train to Italy’s Bernina Express, we’re bringing you some of the most legendary rail pathways across the continent.

Some of Europe’s prettiest landscapes are best appreciated from the wide, bright windows of a train. A European rail journey means you can venture into the heart of a region, as well as to the wilder, more remote passes. Think the alpine valleys and peaks of Switzerland, the castle-sprinkled Cathar Country of France, or even the citrus and almond groves of Mallorca. It’s not your ordinary holiday, but then again, that’s what makes the experience special.

Striking landscapes aside, the very experience of a rail journey can be a powerful hit of nostalgia, a kind of transportation into a whole other era. Some memorable trains include the Bernina Express of Italy and Switzerland, the 100-year-old Train du pays Cathare et du Fenouilledes (the Red Train) of France, or the vintage Orange Blossom Train of Spain, all alike in their being marvels of engineering, but distinct in their varying routes through Europe and unique stylistic quirks.
