It’s not always easy to get the time off to go to travelling, which is why our London to Rome trip is ideal! In just one week we’ll take you by rail from London to 3 of Europe’s biggest, best and most romantic cities!
With 2 nights in each destination, you’ll get a great idea of what each city is about, whilst having time to fit in all the sights on your bucket list. Feel free to choose this trip as it is, or get in touch with us to customise your route!
First things first, head to London to start your whistlestop train adventure! Your first stop is Paris; you’ll get to wake up to phenomenal views of The City of Lights! Stroll around Parisian Montmartre with its Bohemian artist community and pretty red-canopied cafes. Go classic with the iconic sights of the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe and, of course, the Eiffel Tower! If you’ve seen it all before, head to the Pompidou Centre for your modern art fix, or sip on cocktails around Quai de Jemmapes.
To make the most of your time you’ll travel overnight and wake up in the iconic lagoon city – Venice! Have a gondolier or vaporetto take you along the picturesque canalways whilst drinking in architectural wonders like Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Basilica. If you fancy something a little different, take a motorboat to the islands of Murano and Burano to watch artisan craftsmen at work and even pick up some unique souvenirs to take home.
Then bring your trip to a close with a couple of nights in magnificent Rome. Soak up the Italian dolce vita in the cosmopolitan capital and one of the world’s most photogenic cities. The Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and Castel Sant’Angelo are all must-sees, of course! When night falls, the city really comes alive… Head to any of the city’s many unique clubs and jazz bars, and you’ll be guaranteed a great night to remember!
London may be huge, but Central London can be walked all over, from the quirky pop-up stalls of the south bank to the glitz of the West End and out to Hyde Park. The buzzing cosmopolitan nature of the city makes it one of the most culturally diverse in the world.

Experience the quirky nightlife of Soho
Eurostar to Paris – 4 hours
Paris is a byword for romance, a synonym for style and the epitome of elegance. The pride of France and one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Paris needs little introduction, from the Eiffel Tower to the Pont Neuf, bedazzling visitors and oozing charisma at every turn.
See the Mona Lisa at the Louvre museum
Watch a cabaret act the famous Moulin Rouge
Experience the colourful nightlife of the Marais
Night Train to Venice – 15 hours
Venice is nothing short of unique, built on mudbanks in the lagoon, having forgone the convenience of cars for the charisma of canals. Getting lost in Venice is part of the fun, and if you’re on foot you’ll only find small backstreets or large piazzas, not a single road in sight.
Cross the iconic St Mark’s Square
Get lost in the alleyways and canals of the city
Ride the vaporetto down the grand canal
