Step aboard the hidden mountain railways that weave through the Dolomites and explore this beautiful region’s medieval castles

Explore the magnificent Dolomites by train, cable car and funicular railway as you get to know this sensationally scenic part of northern Italy on an unforgettable nine-day trip. You'll want to linger on the shores of Lake Molveno, where you'll stay for seven nights and be perfectly positioned to savour quiet moments by the water, in between historic rail journeys, castle tours, guided walks, and opportunities to taste the region's delicious wines.

After reaching Italy by train from London, via an overnight stop in Frankfurt, you'll have already experienced majestic scenery crossing the Brenner Pass over the Alps from Innsbruck. When you reach Lake Molveno, the Miralago Hotel is your base for the next seven nights. From here, you'll take trips to nearby towns and villages, including Bolzano, Riva del Garda, Limone, Caldes, Madonna di Campiglio, and Trento.

The railways are the stars of this trip. Not only do you reach the region by train, but you'll take one of the steepest funicular railways in Europe to explore the Mendola mountain ridge. From the town of Bolzano, you'll ascend Renon Mountain in two ways: first using a modern cable car and then on a historic narrow-gauge railway for views that will take your breath away. From Mezzolombardo, you'll board the Castle Train for a short railway journey with mountain and castle views en route to Caldes.

A highlight includes a boat trip across Lake Garda - surrounded by soaring mountains and promising sensational panoramas. Illuminating tours of classic Italian towns, including Bolzano and Trento, offer insights into the local history.

Enjoy a lakeside retreat

You'll stay for seven nights at the three-star Hotel Miralago, which sits a little back from the shores of Lake Molveno. The hotel is in the centre of Molveno and just a four-minute walk to the beach. Complimentary spa facilities, including two Turkish baths, a sauna, a hot tub, and an outdoor heated swimming pool, are waiting at the end of busy days exploring. The restaurant serves international and local dishes with views of the lake.
