When Vanity Fair described the Venice-Simplon Orient Express as ‘the train against which all other luxury trains are measured’, they weren’t exaggerating. This train is probably the most glamorous, romantic and dazzling one of all.
Travelling to eight destinations in Europe in between March and November, you can expect all the carriages to be of rolling vintage stock. Equipped with full overnight luxury service, a trip on the Orient Express will stay with you and yours forever.
We’ve compiled a short list of highlights you’ll experience during a trip on this magnificent train.
Another exciting stop that your train will make is at Venice. Take a whole day to explore the Teatro La Fenice, Venice’s own legendary opera house, the Rialto Bridge that overlooks the Grand Canal and all the beautiful buildings that line it.
No trip to Venice would be complete without a trip along the canals in a gondola. If you fancy a more contemporary form of canal-travel, we recommend taking the Vaporetti.
The lesser-known outskirts of Venice are most certainly worth checking out – why not take a trip to the islands of Burano and Murano?[/quoteicon]
