GREAT RAILWAY JOURNEYS OF EUROPE: Insight Guide

INSIGHT GUIDES    Book Number: 90575    Product format: Hardback

The routes in the book have been chosen either for their scenic merit or because they are notable in other ways. For instance the Paris-Marseille and Seville-Madrid high-speed lines are included because of the remarkable speed and smoothness of the journey. Others such as Paris-Moscow have to be considered 'great' journeys for their romance and history. From the Orient Express to small mountain railways like La Rhune in the French Pyrenees and the antique electric train from Palma de Mallorca to Sóller, a narrow-gauge line opened in 1912 which still has the original rolling stock and meanders through the citrus groves and town gardens. See more old fashioned rail-borne transport like the trams and funiculars of Lisbon, the world's steepest railway, the metre-gauge Ligne de Savoie, along the Napoleon route and journey on through Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Austria and other European routes like Krakow to Zakopane, in the rugged peaks of the High Tatra mountains. Travel through classical landscapes and all through Great Britain and Ireland crossing the continent from the comfort of your armchair and exploring Europe's vibrant history and culture. Covers modern day life, people and politics and the inspiration of photography with stunning imagery, sites and excursions. If in person get around easily with detailed maps pinpointing key attractions and get the most out of each country and plan post-pandemic travel with an easy A-Z of useful advice. The maps at the back show the featured route maps and throughout there are stunning posters and even screen shots of the free App included. Heavyweight glamorous softback, 376pp.
