Cabins offer a banquette sofa for seating during the day, that converts to one upper and one lower bed at night.

Within three separate carriages, expert French chefs prepare timeless classics, modern French dishes and 1920's-style afternoon teas comprising delicate custard slices, cakes and sandwiches. At night, dine on Champagne risotto at a table laden with crisp linens, silver and glass wear before waking to a brunch of smoked salmon crumpets complete with a glass of Bellini.
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.
The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express has always been a very special experience and a journey that fans of rail travel rank highly. Each voyage recaptures the bygone age of luxury rail travel with the emphasis on service, scenery and leisure facilities. The Train Manager will make it his personal priority to meet his passengers, while immaculately presented Stewards install a warmth and charm unique to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
