This week we are teaming up with Rail Europe to talk about traveling Europe by train. Train travel has a certain elegance to it, an old world charm, that lends itself perfectly to city-hopping through Europe. Take the overnight train from Paris to Berlin for the Christmas Markets, or cruise the Italian countryside from Milan to Naples, taking in mountains and vineyards and coastlines from the comfort of your seat. In a way that planes and cars cannot, a train enhances a trip and becomes part of the experience itself.
For more on trips and itineraries, you can visit the Rail Europe site here. For more stories and photos on European countrysides and grand train stations, join us on Wednesday, September 24th at 1PM EST for our chat on all things European Train Travel. Use the hashtag #passionpassport to join the chat!
