Why by train?
Many trains travel at 300 km/h allowing you to move between cities quickly and efficiently avoiding traffic congestion on motor ways. What does this mean? Well particularly in Europe it allows more time to be spent at your end destination. Over a three week holiday this may mean four more hours at the Vatican City, three more hours at the Eiffel Tower or five more hours strolling through Venice. Travelling by train simply buys you more time!
2 CENTRE TO CENTRE
Most railway stations are in the centre of the city which avoids expensive taxi fares getting from airports to accommodation. This once again saves time and allows more time exploring.
Europe has over 250,000 kilometres of train tracks at your finger tips. Coupled with the frequency of departures (The Eurostar departs 16 times a day) you can always find a service that suits your needs.
There is no more relaxing method of travel than train travel. On a train you can you read a book, have a sleep, talk to the locals, move freely between carriages or have a drink in the bar? On many routes you can also hop off on and off at towns along the way and catch the next train.
5TRAVEL AT NIGHT
Why not consider the option of travelling overnight on one of the many night train services offering a range of sleeper accommodation from single or twin berth private sleepers to couchette carriages offering excellent value for money beds for 3 to 6 people. Arrive refreshed and ready to explore a new city.
The scenery from trains is absolutely spectacular and in many instances you are traveling through terrain which is not accessible by car or foot.
