French Railways run a motorail service called Auto-Train from Paris as far as Nice. (The service down through Italy was discontinued many years ago).

The Dutch motorail service to Alessandria and Livorno in Italy from the town of ‘s-Hertogenbosch has sadly also now been discontinued (as of April 2015).

Please read our pages on Driving and Regulations before setting off.
