While nobody can deny the technological miracle of flight to go somewhere cheap and quick, train travel offers you something unique: an experience. If you want to feel an era long gone, to travel in style and experience a remarkable journey then let the train take the strain. Here are the 10 greatest train journeys in the world.
1. The Trans-Siberian Railway
The Trans-Siberian Railway is the longest railway in the world and you could see 5,600 miles of Asia with Tsar’s Gold train. By the time you finish the journey the train will have traveled round a fifth of the circumference of planet Earth. The Trans-Siberian is the supreme king of all journeys and a once in a lifetime experience.
2. The Bernina Express
From Davos (Switzerland) to Tirano (Italy), The Bernina Express will take you to incredible ice age glacier and palm trees. It is a slow train, but after you enjoy the alpine landscapes and ride through beautiful historical cities you will not want it to go any faster. A two and a half hours journey to European paradise.
