Our growing programme of short breaks includes a holiday to incomparable Paris by First Class rail and staying in the stylish, perfectly located Hotel Mayfair. Why not head for the Roman city of Verona, where you can enjoy the spectacular experience of the Opera festival at its incomparable arena or the medieval gem of Bruges, the ‘Venice of the North’, which will charm you with its criss-cross of picturesque canals. All of our carefully selected short break destinations are accessible within as little as one day.
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.
