Luxury Holidays On Board Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, A Belmond Train, Europe

In an age where speed is everything, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, A Belmond Train, Europe moves to a different tempo – slowing the jet-setting pace of modern day to a gentle amble by recapturing an era when travelling was a pleasure and not simply a necessity. In addition to the hugely successful London to Venice routes which run between March and November, there are additional journeys to some of the most romantic destinations in the world - from Paris and Prague, to Verona and Vienna. Allow diligent stewards to whisk your luggage away and escort you to your cabin, while you completely absorb a world that is first-class from beginning to end; enjoy silver-service fine dining with five-course à la carte menus, followed by nightcaps in the carriage bar with dreamy piano keys sending you swiftly off to bed.

Culture & History

The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, one of the world's most famous luxury trains, is a work of art and a true symbol of Art Deco design. The beautifully restored 1920s, 30s and 50s coaches present the most elegant way to travel, recalling a much-lauded bygone era. The splendour of the 'Roaring Twenties' may have passed by, but the elegance and art of travelling in style is much sought-after today. Cities that have a close historical connection with the train are Paris, Istanbul and Venice, of course, and the train offers journeys between each of the cities, lasting from one to five nights.
