Slow Tour on a Steam Train

Try this unique slow tour in Veneto, on a very special train: a steam train for tourists dating from the 1920s! How weird, it's like a dream! The association “La carrozza pazza" (The mad coach) runs it every year, two or three times during the colder and mid-seasons, in autumn. These vintage touristic trains take regional routes, travelling along particular lines. Some kind of local "Orient Express", where tourists travel really slow. Then sometimes the train stops and they can go around visit places, have a picnic, enjoy their time.
