  1. Start Day Dreaming Where is the first place you want to visit once we get the ‘all-clear’ ? Do you already have that first weekend getaway in mind? How about that trip abroad you’ve been thinking about for next year? Now is the perfect time to dream and discover new places. If you’re into the great outdoors, check out Glacier National Park in Montana or the stunning scenic train journeys through Switzerland & the Alps. If a city vibe is more your style, consider bohemian Budapest, vibrant Prague or perhaps a visit to the quaint villages of Cinque Terre by train. Whatever your interests, why not take this opportunity to add some new places to your bucket list? 2. Explore Cultural Sites & Famous Landmarks – from your Living Room One silver lining of being stuck at home is that there are more options than ever for armchair traveling!

View live webcams of Glacier National Park in Montana, the Grand Canyon and the spectacular Banff and Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies! You can also join one of Railbookers live virtual tours hosted by our rail experts! 3.

Personalized travel is all the rage these days and for good reason – the ability to create the exact vacation you want (and nothing you don’t) is incredibly appealing. But what does it really mean to customize your train vacation?

How about adding on a day trip to Florence to visit the famous Uffizi Museum before heading to Rome to tour the Colosseum and the ancient ruins?
