    The hashtag ‘eurosummer’ has been trending on social media, gaining almost 600 million views on TikTok.

    And while flying is the easiest way to get to Europe, taking the train is one of the best ways to discover the beauty of the continent once you’re there. But with so many destinations to choose from, which are the best cities to visit and the train journeys to take part of?
