Two of 2024’s top travel trends are sustainable travel and slow travel. Rocco Forte Hotel combined both with the Rocco Forte by Rail offer, allowing customers to fully immerse themselves in multiple destinations while traveling scenic routes.

Starting at The Balmoral in Edinburgh and ending at Verdura Resort in Sicily, guests on the 16-night journey discover eight of Europe’s top cities with two nights at each Rocco Forte property within the city and first-class rail tickets between each destination. At each stop, travelers have the opportunity to experience the city’s culture through each property’s thoughtful combination of people, hospitality, location, cuisine, unique character and local immersive experiences.

Some of the local cultural experiences include:


Enjoy a bespoke experience in partnership with Scotland’s first unisex perfume shop, Kingdom Scotland, with the Scent Butler at The Balmoral.


Explore London’s art scene in Mayfair, and then enjoy a two-course lunch and glass of wine at Charlie’s with Brown’s Hotel’s Mayfair Art Walks.


Embark on a comic tour to uncover the unique artistry found in Belgium. Guests can encounter about 60 comic book characters brought to life on the city’s walls with Hotel Amigo’s Comic City Tour.


Explore the city on a bike tour through Potsdam, the Berlin Wall or other city highlights with Hotel de Rome.


Travel back to the 1980s with The Charles Hotel’s 1980’s Schickeria Tour Experience, including stops at 80’s hot spots, a cocktail and meet-and-greet with a well-known 80’s figure, a visit to the Nights Club Culture in Munich exhibition, and an evening of a drink and pizza at legendary P1 Club.


Journey through the Tuscan countryside foraging for truffles with the Truffle Concierge at Hotel Savory.


Spend an early morning in Vatican City before sunrise to skip the crowds with Rocco Forte’s Unlocking the Door to the Vatican at Dawn experience.


Sit at the Chef’s Table with Michelin-starred Chef Fulvio Pierangelini while he prepares a special seasonal dish for you and teaches you about traditional Palermo cuisine at Villa Igiea.

Amansara Review

It was more than a car journey; it was a transition between worlds. At our first hotel in Siem Reap, huge coaches constantly pulled up outside the lobby to deposit or receive international tour groups; we departed in very different style, in a 1965 black Mercedes limousine once owned by King Sihanouk. The mundanities of mass tourism were left behind. We progressed through the chaotic Cambodian streets in regal comfort and soon arrived at a solid gate.
