Escorted Tours and Independent Vacations
With a Rail Experience
Independent vacation packages sometimes use trains as transportation between major cities. You might travel between London and Paris aboard the Eurostar or hop on a train between stays in Rome, Florence and Venice.
The train portion of your vacation is included in the upfront price, along with your accommodations and other transportation. With escorted tours, many meals, guided sightseeing and other activities are also included.
