A rail itinerary is an ideal way to combine the classic Italian cities. Journey between Venice, Milan, Florence and Rome by rail on a holiday packed with cultural highlights.
If you are looking for a luxury rail journey then travel in classic style all the way from London to Venice via Paris, aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. This is a truly unforgettable way to arrive into one of the most romantic destinations in the world.
Other routes are also available, travelling via Vienna and Budapest.
We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
