Travelling in Europe
Rail Europe has an extensive rail network across Europe taking train travellers to more than 15,000 destinations. We can help you find some of the most beautiful train routes in Europe, from the tops of snow-capped mountains, passing crystal clear lakes, vineyards and crossing deep valleys into the heart of some of the most exciting cities in the world. Our destination guides and traveller tips will help you to choose the perfect route for your adventure across this diverse and fascinating continent.
Travelling by train is the best way to experience different countries and cultures and Rail Europe can take you straight to the centre of the action, to thousands of European destinations. Our network offers high speed modern and comfortable trains, night trains, double-decker trains and scenic route trains helping to make your trip a journey of a lifetime.
With our excellent relationships with each country’s rail network we have access to more than 15,000 routes across Europe. We can help you plan and book a ride on the Eurostar from Paris to London, or perhaps you want to travel around France on the TGV. Whatever your route, we have the best solution for you: connectivity. Jump on the Thalys and explore Belgium, climb aboard the ICE trains and see Germany. Wherever you want to go, we can help you get there.
To help you plan and organise your route, we offer train travellers to Europe a range of rail passes. The idea is that whatever your itinerary, we can find a pass to make your travel hassle-free. For example, some people want to get to know one country really well. For this we have the country rail passes such as the Eurail Italy Pass. This means you can jump on and off the Frecciarossa Italian trains visiting Milan, Rome, Naples, Florence, and Seville – the whole of Italy at your feet! Or perhaps you want to taste the delights of French cuisine in Paris and Lyon and explore the vineyards of the Loire valley before heading to the French Riviera? For this the France Rail Pass will help you take the TGV all over the country.
You maybe be visiting more than one country on your incredible train journey. We have a pass for this too. The Eurail Select Pass means you have unlimited travel in three, four or five bordering countries. So you might want to see the castles of Germany on the ICE trains and then head to Italy and then enjoy the scenic train rides through Switzerland and France and end up eating tapas and going surfing in Spain.
The opportunity to travel and explore is amazing, but for the ultimate flexibility and freedom, and to travel around 24 European countries, our Eurail Global Pass is the best bet. Imagine visiting Copenhagen, Stockholm, Berlin, Geneva, Paris, London, Barcelona, Rome and more all on one trip. The Eurail Global pass gives you Europe at your feet.
So whatever your itinerary, favourite city or country is, Rail Europe can help you to plan the ultimate trip. You can think big, explore more and experience hundreds of incredible places.
