7 – 25 May 2014 (19 days)
Milan – Genoa – Pisa – Siena – Florence – Assisi – Rome – Naples – Sicily
From Switzerland in the north to Sicily in the south, the trains of Italy will take you on an odyssey through some of the greatest cities, sights and sensations the country has to offer.
Travel in the company of rail enthusiast and former Deputy Prime Minister, Tim Fischer – who for a thousand days called Rome home in his recent role as the ambassador to the Vatican – and with Railway Adventures director and TV personality Scott McGregor.
Their combined love for all things railway and Italian have inspired this adventure which will have you boarding a wide variety of different trains from high speed inter-city expresses to character-filled, vintage specials. Highlights will include a steam excursion through Tuscany, vintage Fiat rail-car around Mt Etna’s unique private narrow-gauge line and the coastal cliff-hugging routes of Cinque Terre and the Amalfi coast.
A feast of culinary delights also awaits and our hand-picked guides will illuminate the plethora of museums, galleries and world heritage sites so conveniently found at the end of the line. This really is an extraordinary railway odyssey through the very heart and soul of Italy.
