With his "Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide 1913" in hand and wearing his trademark colourful jackets, Michael Portillo makes six memorable train journeys through the European continent and beyond. TULA TO ST PETERSBURG Michael explores the eastern-most extreme of Europe as he travels through Russia from the golden domes and icons of Tula to Moscow, and the splendour of St Petersburg. ROME TO TAORMINA Travelling down the spine of Italy from Rome to Sicily, Michael takes in the sights of the capital from the back of a 1950s Vespa on his way to see Mount Etna. WARSAW TO KRAKOW Michael explores a country where east meets west: Poland. Starting in Warsaw, he travels to Krakow, where he braves a road trip in an iconic communist car. LA CORUNA TO LISBON Michael discovers Galicia's Celtic roots, before crossing the border into Portugal; visiting Santiago de Compostela, he finds a guidebook considerably older than his Bradshaw's. HAIFA TO THE NEGEV DESERT Venturing beyond Europe, Michael explores the Holy Land visiting Haifa and Jerusalem before heading south to the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea. LYON TO MARSEILLE Beginning with a cookery lesson in the capital of cuisine, Michael journeys from the heart of France to Marseille's vast port, gateway to the former French empire.
