As days grow longer again head for the freshness of the coast, or venture inland to enjoy magnificent verdant scenery. In town colourful markets reflect the changing season with their abundant produce. When you journey further south echoes of summer return in the dappled light, unfurled umbrellas and warmth of ancient stone.
Lesley and I have just returned from our 6 night holiday to Venice brilliantly organised by Planet Rail. The perfect weather was matched by the perfect organisation of the holiday by the team at Planet Rail. From the first contact with the team you felt confident that you were in safe hands and that all your requests would be satisfied. All of the rail / taxi arrangements worked perfectly and the choice of hotels were stunning. From the 5star Grand Sitea in Turin, the marvellous Suisse Majestic in Montreux with its room overlooking a sun kissed Lake Geneva, to the perfection that was the Al Ponte Antico in Venice. Having breakfast on the balcony as the Grand Canal traffic passed in front you as it made its way through the Rialto Bridge is a memory that will treasured by us both. Thank you to all the team at Planet Rail for giving us such a wonderful experience.
