  • Holidays on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express to Eastern Europe

     Holidays on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express to Eastern Europe

    The legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express also travels into Eastern Europe on selected dates throughout the year. Perhaps combine a journey on this iconic train with one of our tailor-made rail holidays in Eastern Europe. Destinations this iconic train travels to in Eastern Europe include Prague, Budapest, Berlin, Vienna, Bucharest and Istanbul.
    A journey on the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express from London to Venice has to be the ultimate train journey. It allows you to enjoy the luxury of rail holidays as it used to be, conjuring up the romance of the Twenties and Thirties, when rail travel flourished and was deemed to be the only civilised way to journey across Europe. The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express continues that tradition of elegance and refinement and is a totally delightful and memorable experience.
    The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express
    Accommodation on board the luxury train is in private cabins with a washbasin cabinet. In the daytime your cabin is a seating area, then whilst you are at dinner it is transformed by the stewards to become a luxurious bedroom with one upper and one lower bed. It is also possible to stay in two interconnecting cabins, using one as a private lounge and the other as a bedroom. Meals (included in the price) are served in one of the three restaurant cars with gourmet dishes being freshly prepared by French chefs. Relax after dinner in the bar car where you can enjoy cocktails in glamorous surroundings.
