Discover an intoxicating mix of romance, history, culture and gastronomy. Gaze out over an enchanting array of landscapes from sparkling lakes to rolling hills, spectacular mountain peaks to breathtaking coastline.
In our humble opinion, Italy has it all; stunning architecture, world-famous works of art, glorious renaissance cities, fabulous fashion, mouth-watering food and wine, and some of the most gorgeous scenery in Europe. Whether you are attracted by Italy’s classical cities of Rome, Florence and Venice, the marvellous coastline, medieval hill towns and landscapes of Tuscany and Umbria or its majestic lakes, Italy will seduce and beguile you.
When in Italy we also recommend you indulge in the pleasures of la dolce vita : wonderful food, excellent wine and stylish fashion.
Lesley and I have just returned from our 6 night holiday to Venice brilliantly organised by Planet Rail. The perfect weather was matched by the perfect organisation of the holiday by the team at Planet Rail. From the first contact with the team you felt confident that you were in safe hands and that all your requests would be satisfied. All of the rail / taxi arrangements worked perfectly and the choice of hotels were stunning. From the 5star Grand Sitea in Turin, the marvellous Suisse Majestic in Montreux with its room overlooking a sun kissed Lake Geneva, to the perfection that was the Al Ponte Antico in Venice. Having breakfast on the balcony as the Grand Canal traffic passed in front you as it made its way through the Rialto Bridge is a memory that will treasured by us both. Thank you to all the team at Planet Rail for giving us such a wonderful experience.
