The Venice Simplon-Orient Express is simply the most romantic way to travel to Paris or Venice. To embark on a voyage aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is to become part of its ever-changing history. As the gleaming carriages arrive into the station and the uniformed steward welcomes guests aboard, you know that the journey of a lifetime has begun.
Though associated with the glamour of the Roaring Twenties, the golden age of travel is still alive and well today. Savour beautiful surroundings, dine on spectacular cuisine, and connect with like-minded adventurers united in the shared joy of travel.
