Product Description

From London's historic Victoria Station to the sunny cities of Italy, ultimately climbing into the astounding summits of Switzerland, this video takes the viewer on a stunning trip through Europe by rail. The first leg of the journey takes the fabled Orient Express from London to the English Channel, then, after a ferry crossing, resumes a luxurious train trip through France and into Italy. The scenery shown in the video is spectacular, and it easily establishes the point that a train window might be the ideal vantage point from which to appreciate Europe. The second leg of the journey takes the viewer through Venice, Florence, Rome, and Milan, and in the third leg of the trip, the Glacier Express rolls upward into the Alps. The footage shot in Switzerland is particularly astonishing as the trains doggedly move up the mountains (but inside, things remain calm--wineglasses in the luxurious cars are specially made to sit on tables that are always slanted). This commendable video features an understated narration that lets the scenery and the classic trains speak for themselves; when portraying a combination train station and observatory 13,000 feet high in the Alps, the photography says more than any narrator could. --Robert J. McNamara

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Comfortable Way to Travel April 24 1999
By A Customer
Format:DVD
You'll travel on very nice trains, in this DVD, and see interesting parts of the world. As one might expect, the DVD falls a little short in its depiction of the cities that are visited, because the focus is on the train ride and what can be seen from the train. You'll occasionally ride up front with the conductor, go through tunnels, over high bridges, alongside rivers, and should enjoy the view. Bon voyage!

This is a very interesting video introducing famous railway lines in Europe. This is one of the three video series of "Travel the world by train Europe." I myself have travelled some of the railways introduced in this video and this video reminded me of good memories of my former trips in Europe. This video is highly recommendable for people who like travelling in Europe. I have to add that this video format (NTSC) is also accepted by Japanese video players. I have bought all of the three videos of "Travel the world by train Europe" series. Interestingly, this video was produced by "TV Asahi," Tokyo, Japan. We have a similar TV program series in Japan introducing railways all over the world.

2.0 out of 5 stars FOOD, FOOD, and more FOOD May 10 2006
By travel lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The far more sensible title for this dvd is "Food Served on Trains", because most of the video shows the sequential serving of various foods on various trains in various countries! I expected from the title that I will get a view of the places around the train routes as the journey continues, but totally disappointed. If you are a food lover, you might like this dvd ;-)

This DVD has a lot going for it. I found it very entertaining. There's a good mix of train, scenery, and people shots. The itinerary is stimulating. The pace is pretty steady. I didn't get bored. I'm looking forward to Part 2! If you like traveling by train, you'll enjoy this DVD!
