Why tour here?

Sarah Wakely said:

“The premise was simple: I was going to take a motorhome along the route of the Venice-Simplon Orient Express, from London’s Victoria Station to Venice. During the trip I’d stick as closely as possible to the most traditional route the train takes, so I’d be visiting Paris, Innsbrück and Verona before finally rolling into Venice.

“This fantastic view is from the road between Trento and Bolzano, on the border between Austria and Italy, on the approach to Venice.”
