You won't get tired muscles or cramps from tiny seats or being forced to stay immobile for hours at a time, or have to suffer through crowded (and sometimes very confusing) airports or bus terminals, and you won't need to rush from one terminal to the next to make your connecting flights. There's plenty of room to stretch on modern railway cars, from large private travel cars (although you may not want to leave your comfortable armchair or your cosy sleeping compartment), to the lounge, where you're encouraged to relax and mingle with other passengers. If you get hungry, just wander down to the dining car, which offers wonderful, fresh cuisine to rival the best in the world. Best of all, you don't have to suffer from jet lag or skip over all the interesting sites that lie between your initial location and your destination. If you're planning to visit as many sites and attractions as possible when travelling through Europe, train holidays are the perfect answer.
