Trains have always been a unique and sophisticated way to travel. The slow pace from departure to arrival, the quiet ride through landscapes and the alternation between city and countryside, satiate the traveller’s eye and are pleasures waiting to be discovered by the uninitiated. Historic luxury carriages, panoramic railway routes and timeless routes take the reader of this book through breathtaking canyons and romantic landscapes. Striking images, informative geographical material and personal experiences bring these train adventures to life, ranging from a “short” three-hour journey to an intercontinental journey lasting several days.
