Two cities, one fabulous journey of real prestige, the Venice Simplon-Orient Express route from Venice to Vienna is an odyssey of true distinction. Beginning in Italy’s iconic and breathtaking city of canals, you will pass through some of Central Europe’s most majestic scenery as you make a beeline for Austria’s capital; without question one of the grandest and most refined towns on the planet. All made possible thanks to an overnight stay onboard the world’s most renowned train, it’s understandable this trip features on many a traveller’s wish list.
Arrive at Venice Santa Lucia station for an early-evening departure, leaving the romantic city of canals behind as you pull out into breathtaking Italian countryside, with a steward on hand to show you to your private cabin. After settling in it’s time to visit the splendidly restored, intricately detailed Restaurant Car for your sumptuous four course meal, prepared by highly skilled French chefs. Later, either choose indulgent drinks in the Bar Car, or simply retire to your cabin, which has now been transformed into a cosy bedroom.
Wake up to find fabulous Austrian vistas passing by out of the window, with a continental breakfast brought to your cabin by the steward. After eating, the train will pull into your final destination, the wonderful city of Vienna, arriving mid-morning, leaving the entire day to explore this iconic capital.
