Europe by Rail: The Definitive Guide – 15th Edition

By Nicky Gardner and Susanne Kries

This fully revised and updated 15th edition continues the tried-and-trusted guidebook format, combining accurate, helpful advice and information that will be useful to novice and experienced travellers alike, but as well as the practical elements, it’s also a great read, compiled by two knowledgeable authors who travel extensively across the continent and have a real passion for railways.
