After breakfast at your hotel this morning, perhaps explore the elaborate interiors of the Residenz, home to the Wittelsbachs, who ruled Bavaria from the 15th century until World War I. On display is a vast collection of their treasures, including fine tapestries, furniture, works of art and bronze sculptures.

DAY 3 - MUNICH TO INNSBRUCK
After breakfast take the train from Munich across Bavaria and the Austrian border to Innsbruck. Forgo the high-speed service and instead meander around the bases of the imposing Alpine mountains. The train passes through the historic market town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and through stunning mountain scenery to the self-proclaimed capital of the Alps, Innsbruck. Look out for Kufstein fortress as you cross the Austrian border. On arrival in Innsbruck, check in at your hotel for an overnight stay, and begin to explore. (Overnight in Innsbruck) B

Alternatively, take a cable car up to Nordkette for skiing, hiking or a spot of lunch with panoramic alpine views. (Overnight in Innsbruck) B

DAY 5 - INNSBRUCK TO VERONA
After breakfast, take the train from Innsbruck through the Alps via the Brenner Pass route. This scenic journey takes you through Alpine meadows and past snowy peaks before skirting around Lake Garda and arriving into Verona. Travel over 3,000 feet up to Brenner, twisting and turning through the mountains before rolling through Italy's rolling hills. On arrival, check in at your hotel for an overnight stay. (Overnight in Verona) B

DAY 6 - VERONA
Full of magic from the glory days of the Roman Empire, Verona is an Italian gem, with stunning architecture, fine Italian food and Shakespearian romance. Get your bearings in the riverside gem before tucking into a traditional dinner accompanied by a glass of local wine. Discover Juliet's balcony and the Roman Amphitheatre, constructed in 30AD and still home to many musical and theatre productions. (Overnight in Verona) B

DAY 7 - DEPART VERONA
After breakfast this morning, check out of your hotel and continue with your travels. If you wish to extend your holiday, perhaps with an additional day in a different city, one of our Rail Specialists will be happy to assist you with the details. B
