Take the Grand Tour of Italy by Train

Erail Holidays, who specialise in independent rail holidays to Europe are offering a discount of £75 per person for their cultural tour around Italy this October.

Discover ancient Rome, renaissance Florence and the iconic Grand Canal in Venice staying in family run 3* city centre hotels from £910 per person. Travel 26th October to coincide with half term, or on a date of your choice, on the comfortable night train in a private double sleeper. 

The holiday starts from the restored landmark of St Pancras station taking the Eurostar to Paris connecting with the new sleeper service to Italy, staying at the Galileo hotel by Rome’s Termini station. 

After two Roman days take the high-speed train for the 90-minute journey to Florence staying at the River hotel overlooking the Arno and 10 minutes from the Ponte Vecchio. 

After 2 days in the renaissance city, enjoy a three-hour scenic trip through the Apennines to Venice where the station fronts on to the Grand Canal. The upgraded 4* accommodation is at the Best Western Premier Santa Elena Hotel, quietly situated near St Marks Square. Breakfast is included at all hotels except in Venice

Coinciding with the half-term holidays, this is also an ideal trip for older children studying art as further reductions are available if the overnight accommodation on the trains and hotels is shared.

All Erail holidays are individually tailored to your requirements so if you want to stop in Paris and skip Florence it’s no problem
