Venice on the Venice Simplon – Orient-Express

Step aboard the legendary train and leave the modern age behind, as you enter an iconic and elegant world of travel, where impeccably dressed porters and crisp linens evoke a bygone era of romance and intrigue. Take part in your own adventure as you sip a Bellini while rolling through glorious countryside in our gleaming carriages, toward La Serenissima.


A landmark moment in railway history, October 1883 saw the launch of the original Orient-Express. Leaving from Paris, it steamed through the Alps, Budapest and Bucharest to Constantinople.


Packed with grandees and unheard of luxuries such as soap by the washbasins, reports swiftly came back of its exquisite food, excellent wine and impeccable service.

Carrying royalty, film stars, artists and spies between great European cities ever since, a journey aboard this iconic train is one of the world’s finest travel experiences – a sequence of unforgettable moments.

Today, the gleaming carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express luxury train continue to transport passengers across Europe, in exquisite surroundings, on one of the most celebrated and romantic journeys in the world.

There is simply no finer way to travel to Venice than aboard the luxurious Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.

Dine in authentic 1920s carriages and share travellers’ tales over glasses of champagne in the Bar Car. Then be lulled to sleep in a private cabin with brass lamps and marquetry panelling, awake to a breakfast in bed and roll down the windows to discover the sights outside.
