Cruise and rail holidays in Europe

From medieval funiculars to the age of steam, Europe lays claim to much of the railway’s storied past. And, this rich heritage lives on today with the likes of the Venice Simplon-Orien- Express, resplendent in all the trappings of the golden age of travel. But, the Continent is also host to some of the world's greatest cruises. Sweep east on the Danube, showcase the medieval history of the Rhône and combine rustic villages with grand cities on the Rhine. Then, on the Mediterranean, there's Greek island hopping and the old-world glamour of the riverias.
