Europe by Train – Planning your Trip by Rail in Europe
By James Martin. Europe Travel Expert
James Martin is a writer, photographer, and webmaster who has traveled extensively in Europe since 1977 and hasn’t tired of it. He has lived and worked as an archaeologist in Italy and Greece and has studied Italian at the University for Foreigners in Perugia, Italy. He’s been living part-time in northern Italy for seven years, and writes about the experience at Wandering Italy and on the Wandering Italy Blog. His experience there has induced him to author the mobile app called Tuscany for Foodies. Even more recently, he’s authored, with Paola Loi, the mobile app called Sardinia Inside Out.

Europe s rail system is extensive–and the trains are getting faster all the time, in order to compete with budget airlines. My preference, when I m not driving around in the countryside, is biased toward trains over airlines. The seats are more comfortable, all luggage can be carried on, and you get taken city center to city center.
