About Venice Simplon-Orient-Express
The Venice Simplon-Orient Express train is a work of art in itself - a true Art Deco icon that is famous the world over.
Romance, glamour, adventure and the mystery of the past are all intimately bound up in journeys that visit some of the most alluring continental cites. Few trains still exist from a more gracious, elegant age of travel. This lovingly maintained train is a worthy inheritor of the legend that is 'Orient Express'.
Air-conditioned vintage cabins, delicious afternoon teas and exquisite dining with lively on-board entertainment make a journey aboard this icon one of the world's finest travel experiences.
The General Manager of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, Pascal Deyrolle, says that dinner, like the 1920s, is theatre. Guests enjoy the atmosphere— afternoon tea, dressing for dinner, enjoying the bar car; it’s similar to the aristocratic life of former times.
