Venice Simplon-Orient Express, VENICE, Italy

Looking like something out of an Agatha Christie whodunit, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is renowned for its luxurious journeys ​between the great cities of Europe and through some of the continent’s most beautiful scenery.

It's no secret that the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express oozes splendid Old-World charm with all the elegance of a bygone era.

First introduced at the end of the 18th century, the carriages are now fitted with 1920s décor, polished brass and Lalique glass friezes: your gleaming private compartment furnished with a sofa, small table, a wash basin and luggage rack.​

​White-gloved waiters deliver afternoon tea dressed in delightful livery, and the vintage, Art Nouveau-style Bar Car with its resident pianist sets the atmosphere in which to dress to the nines and enjoy cocktails against a stunning, ever-changing backdrop, before a gastronomic feast of the highest calibre in the meticulously-restored dining cars, prepared by skilled French chefs. 

9 cabins per carriage, plus 3 dining cars with tables of 2 or 4
