Best of Italy featuring Lake Como & the Amalfi Coast

Kate Schulenberg
5 stars
“This was a wonderful vacation. When I first booked this vacation, I did not know it was "on our own". As three elderly ladies we were more than a little nervous. Gabrielle did a wonderful job of helping me through all of the details as did Bridget. The hotels were nice and clean and well located and the train station was never very far away. The tours provided by the tour were excellent and the timing of the train rides perfect. All of the connections were seamless and the tour guides and drivers were all exceptional. I recommend this company, and this tour if you want to be on your own but have all the details, ie hotels, train tickets, transfers, taken care of.

“This was an awesome trip! We enjoyed having the scheduled tours/drivers, but we also enjoyed having time alone to relax or explore on our own. We couldn't ask for a better vacation. I would definitely sign up for another Vacation By Rail tour.

“This was a wonderful vacation. The tour guide was excellent. However, I wish I was told in advance I was joining a mostly British group. I had no British pounds to tip the guide.

Italy by Train

Italy exudes romance, from its breathtaking cities to its sun-kissed coast. It is a country that is world-renowned for its delicious culinary offerings and incredible wine, a place where centuries of history combines with fashion, art, and modern luxuries. Experience the wonder of Italy by train to explore the country's top destinations and to fall in love with the Italian culture.

Italy tours feature cities such as Rome, Florence, Sorrento, Milan, Naples and Venice, and seaside destinations along the Amalfi Coast. Travelers may even experience the Old World charms of Sicily during their Italian adventure. In Rome, visit St. Peter's Square, see the Colosseum and Roman Forum, climb the Spanish Steps, and make a wish in the Trevi Fountain. Take time to relax in one of the city's many piazzas, enjoying some gelato or espresso while soaking in the ambiance. In Florence, visit the traditional leather markets, see Michelangelo's David at the Galleria dell'Accademia and seek out the Medici Chapel. Enjoy a romantic canal cruise in Venice or walk through St. Mark's Square to admire the intricate basilicas. Visit the island of Murano for some delicate glass souvenirs or travel by rail to the ruined city of Pompeii. Relax in Sorrento, the perfect place to begin your explorations of the colorful Amalfi Coast.

But it is not just destinations that are highlighted on an Italian train tour; instead, enjoy immersive experiences that introduce the best in the country. From cooking lessons in Rome to wine tastings in Tuscany and from visits to small towns in the Italian countryside to walking through Vatican City, there is no shortage of fantastic excursions. Enjoy these experiences and more with an exclusive Italy tour, or choose a vacation package that includes neighboring countries, such as France and Switzerland, to uncover the contrasts of Europe.
