The Venice Simplon Orient Express Train

The Venice Simplon Orient Express train has been running since the 1920's when the train was one of the first to pioneer the golden age of train travel.

Let the countryside pass you by while relaxing in style.

The Orient Express has three levels of cabin. The first is the Twin Cabin which comes with a lounge, banquette sofa and a washbasin. By night it is transformed into a bedroom with an upper and lower bed.

The second is the Twin Cabin Suite which consists of two interconnecting cabins. One room can be kept as a lounge with the second having an upper and lower berth, or make way for two single beds; one in each room.

The third, new for 2018, are the Grand Suites. Each has a double/twin bedroom, a living area with space for private dining and a sofa, which can be converted into an additional bed in the evening. A private ensuite bathroom includes shower, washbasin and toilet. The celebrated 24-hour cabin service is complemented by free-flowing champagne in your suite.

The train also has fine dining with not two but three restaurant cars. The first is the Cote d'Azure with blue opaque glass classical figures. The second is the Etoile du Nord with fantastic marquetry, and the last is L'Oriental which is stylised in black lacquer panels.
