Wonderful inspiration for all travellers,
This review is from: Man in Seat 61: A Guide to Taking the Train Through Europe (Paperback)
The Man in Seat 61 gives an authoritative yet friendly rundown on the whys' and wherefores' of European rail travel. In succinct and well written sections you can find out everything from how to travel with your bike to how to get to Prague (I fancy the overnight train from Cologne myself)
It is inspiring in helping you to realise how much easier and pleasurable rail travel is, and once you have got your head around the anachronisms of some of the European websites the world (or Europe at least) is your oyster.
We are using the book to help plan a family summer trip to Italy, as well as weekends away. Coupled to the Thomas Cook rail map I cannot see any need to fly anywhere in Europe again.
