Grand Tour of Italy

Grand Tour of Italy Overview

From elegant Turin to incomparable Venice, and from gastronomic Bologna to Rome’s eternal splendour, this Grand Tour by first-class rail is an absolute treat.

  • self-guided cultural journey by rail, taking in Italy’s most splendid cities
  • sumptuous art & magnificent architecture
  • detailed notes for a self-guided walking tour in each city
  • fast & efficient journeys by first-class rail
  • stylish hotels, reflecting each city’s character

Put yourself in the shoes of a ‘Grand Tourist’ from the 18th or early-19th centuries: fresh from a dalliance with Parisian high society and a spot of Swiss Alpinism, you arrive in northern Italy for the next stage of your fantastic adventure – an exposure to the astonishing cultural legacy (classical antiquity and marvels of the Renaissance) that only cities such as Turin, Venice, Florence and Rome can provide. And now, as the modern-day traveller, you have all this and more spread before you: extraordinary Venetian palazzi, Brunelleschi’s Florentine duomo, and Bologna’s array of gastronomic delights – all discoverable in style and comfort from your first-class train carriage and through our carefully compiled walking tours. Our notes are your ‘bear-leader’ – the equivalent of the tutor or scholarly guide from yesteryear – and all you need to do is come along for the ride, allow Italy’s untold riches to reveal themselves, and soak up la bella vita  for yourself.
