Let me take you on a journey to experience the Venice Simplon-Orient Express and the beauty and elegance of Venice.

Prepare for a world of timeless indulgence aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient Express. This iconic train offers an unparalleled luxury experience, combining the glamour of a bygone era with modern amenities and comforts. Imagine stepping onto the platform and being greeted by the train’s staff, who will assist you in boarding your carriage. Once inside, you’ll be transported to a world of luxury and indulgence.

Two Day Journey

This two day  journey on board the Venice Simplon-Orient Express begins in Paris and takes you through some of the most beautiful mountain and countryside landscapes in Europe. The train features several different types of cabins, from cozy singles to spacious suites. Each cabin is beautifully appointed with luxurious fabrics, fine linens, and exquisite detailing. The attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the train’s design, from the polished wood paneling to the art deco fixtures.

One of the highlights of the Venice Simplon-Orient Express is the dining experience. Meals are prepared by skilled chefs using the freshest ingredients and served in the beautifully appointed 1920’s restaurant cars. You’ll savor every bite of your gourmet four-course meal, accompanied by fine wines and impeccable service. Later, you may wish to linger in Bar Car “3674”, listening to the resident pianist play the baby grand. 

In the evening, retire to your cabin, which has been transformed into a cozy bedroom. Drift off to sleep as the train gently rocks you towards your destination. Wake up to a beautiful new day with Bellinis and gourmet meals in the opulent restaurant cars, striking conversations with fellow passengers. By the afternoon, you’ll be making your way to Santa Lucia station, all too soon it will be time to disembark and explore beautiful Venice. 

Arriving in the City of Water

Venice is one of the most romantic and charming cities in the world. Known for its winding canals, stunning architecture, and rich history, Venice is a true gem of Italy. There is nothing quite like exploring the narrow streets and canals of this enchanting city. You can visit the famous Saint Mark’s Square and Basilica, marvel at the architecture of the Doge’s Palace, and take a gondola ride through the canals.

The journey aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient Express is truly an unforgettable experience. From the opulence and elegance of the train to the charm of Venice, this journey is a true indulgence for the senses.
