Milan to Rome (North Route)
This Four City Explorer enables you to visit four of Italy’s best and well known cities including Milan, Verona, Venice and Rome. You will travel on board the modern and stylish Italo trains by Prima Class, offering comfortable seats, spacious leg room and complimentary hot drinks and snacks throughout your journey.
Your rail journey will begin in the chic and cosmopolitan fashion capital of Milan, where art, style and design are a life form. It is home to the beautiful and decadent Galleria Vittorio Emanuele shopping arcade, filled with designer boutiques, world famous fashion brands and plenty of restaurants and cafes to keep you energised after a day of shopping. The Duomo is possibly Milan’s most famous attraction, with its gothic architecture and impressive steeples, you should make a point to stop and admire from the outside or venture inside to see some fantastic works of stain glass art and the most impressive views of the city below from the cathedrals rooftop.
Nothing says history and romance quite like Verona. It is the setting where poet and playwright, William Shakespeare chose to set his famous tragedy, Romeo & Juliet and each year sees thousands of tourists flock to Juliet’s balcony from the plays famous scene. Verona may often be overlooked by some of Italy’s more well-known cities but it has some stunning bridges, narrow streets and an impressive amphitheatre now used for theatrical productions and world class operas. You will also stop off at Venice, a city built on water, it is a metropolis of winding canals and beautiful bridges, including the beautiful Rialto Bridge, one of the oldest bridges in Venice. Sail back on a gondola down narrow waterways or take in the sights of St Marks Square. Each year the city welcomes hordes of international travellers for the annual Venice Carnival, a colourful spectacle of masque parades and characters dressed in traditional fashion of days gone by.
No trip to Italy would be the same without a visit to its ancient capital, Rome. Once the centre of politics, the city today is a modern world built against an ancient backdrop, including the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, St Peter's Basilica and the Vatican, home to Michelangelo's outstanding work of art, the Sistine Chapel. A visit to the famous baroque Trevi Fountain should not be missed and don’t forget to throw a coin into the water to guarantee your return to Rome in the future.
