Rome and Tuscany provide an embarrassment of riches. The Eternal City has so much to see, while the wonderful light and delightful countryside of Tuscany has been attracting tourists since the British aristocracy started going on the ‘Grand Tour’. A highlight will be a short railtour ending in the Vatican City, the world’s smallest independent state, reached by the world’s shortest international railway! A fast run on Italy’s first high speed line whisks us to Florence, once the home of the infamous Medici family and the ideal place for a day trip with a steam locomotive into evocative Tuscan landscapes. We enjoy sightseeing in Florence, Pistoia and the gem of a city that is Lucca, but there are rail options throughout including a visit to the old depot at Pistoia, now the main centre for the Italian State railways heritage collection of locomotives.
