Arena Rail Holidays' portfolio of European holidays by rail for this autumn includes a short break ideally suited for those with an interest in art, architecture and history.

The four-day ‘Monet's Garden, Chartres, Versailles & the Loire’ tour is priced from £449 per person and includes excursions to the home of Claude Monet and the final resting place of Leonardo da Vinci, alongside opportunities to marvel at the Palace of Versailles and Chateau de Chenonceau.

At Monet's Garden at Giverny, visitors can tour the gardens that inspired many of the artist's greatest works; while at the Palace of Versailles, built for Louis XIV, the tour includes highlights such as the Hall of Mirrors, the Grand Apartments for the King and Queen, and the King's Bedchamber.

There is also time for guests to explore the medieval streets and iconic cathedral of Chartres as well as Amboise in the heart of the Loire Valley. Travelling by Eurostar from London to Paris, the no-fly short break includes three-star hotel accommodation on the outskirts of Paris, a schedule of excursions, all transport and the services of a tour director.
