The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train is quite unlike anything you will ever experience. The inaugural journey took place in 1883 and the train itself has seen an immense transformation over the years.

Originally the service used British Pullman luxury carriages in which it served culinary excellence to upper class guests and royalty travelling between Paris and Istanbul. Today the British Pullman trains transport guests from London to Paris from where they will step aboard the elegant Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.

The 1920s is often referred to as the golden age of travel although travelling by rail is still recognised as having style and sophistication. Throughout the ages novels and films have been based around the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, creating intrigue and desire to travel on this prestigious train. Today the vintage carriages have been lovingly restored to their former glory, recreating one of the finest luxury train experiences the world has ever known.

On board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express you will be surrounded by grand interiors, glistening crystal and polished woods. Guests can relax in their private cabins and watch the countryside roll past whilst enjoying impeccable service from their personal steward.

So look ahead with unbridled delight as you embark on a voyage and become part of the ever-changing history on your Venice Simplon-Orient-Express holiday.
