Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

be part of history


To embark on a voyage aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is to become part of its ever-changing history. 

As the gleaming carriages arrive into the station and the uniformed steward welcomes guests aboard, they’ll know that the journey of a lifetime has begun. 

If there is one name that immediately conjures up images of the golden age of rail travel, it is the Orient Express. Travelling on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express sends you back to a time when the journey was as much about the experience as much as the destination.

This experience is more than a journey it is entering a different world for 2 days.

As soon as you board you will step back in time to a bygone era of luxury rail travel. The sumptuous art deco interior is like a film set, with exquisite features like Lalique glass inlays and polished cherry-wood panelling. As you make your way to your luxurious cabin, it is easy to imagine yourself as a character straight out of an Agatha Christie novel and just waiting to bump into Hercules Poirot in the train corridors. Or maybe allow your imagination take in a chance meeting with James Bond in the bar sharing a “shaken but not stirred” cocktail.

This train is simply one of those iconic journeys that everyone would like to do at least once in their lifetime. But this holiday should be more than the journey itself, arriving in Venice spend time in this beautiful city wandering the narrow streets and alleyways that crisscross the canals on tiny bridges. Have that romantic ride on a Gondola or simply sit outside drinking a coffee and watch the world go by.
