Your Orient Express Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 – Travel to Paris & board the the Venice Simplon Orient Express

Your adventure begins at London St. Pancras, where you travel by First Class rail to Paris and before boarding the world-famous Venice Simplon Orient Express, with its distinctive blue and gold carriages. 

Your own personal steward is on hand to attend to you throughout your Venice Simplon Orient Express holiday.

Take the time to settle in to your comfortable private compartment, relax and admire the elaborate flourishes and spectacular marquetry of this elegant train, before dressing for dinner.

Enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail before making your way to one of the magnificent restaurant cars, where you will be served a delicious four-course dinner, prepared by skilled French chefs.

Following dinner you may wish to enjoy a drink in the bar car, listening to the sound of the baby grand piano.

By now your compartment has been transformed into a cosy bedroom, which you can retire to whenever you are ready.

Day 2 – The Venice Simplon Orient Express signature journey through the Swiss Alps to Venice

Breakfast is served in your compartment this morning at a time to suit you; be sure to admire the stunning views of the Swiss Alps as you start the day.

You may wish to continue gazing out at the incredible scenery from your compartment, or perhaps spend the morning chatting to fellow guests over coffee.

Later you enjoy a leisurely three-course lunch served in another of the beautiful restaurant cars. Perhaps visit the on-board boutique to purchase souvenirs, while away the hours in conversation or take it easy in your compartment and admire the superb views of Lake Lucerne and Lake Como.

Afternoon tea is served in your compartment during the journey, then all too soon it is time to disembark as the train crosses the Venetian Lagoon and arrives at Venice Santa Lucia station.

Here a water taxi transfers you to your hotel for the next three nights. The Hotel Ai Mori d’Oriente* (4 star) is an attractive, welcoming hotel located in a quiet area just 15 minutes from the Rialto Bridge with its friendly service, elegant and comfortable rooms.

*Please note other hotels are available if you prefer, according to your preferences and budget.

Days 3 & 4 – At leisure in Venice

Enjoy two full days in Venice; make the most of the time to experience the uniqueness of this incredible city. 

You may decide to visit St. Mark’s Square, the Doges Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica or explore the market and shops in and around the Rialto Bridge. 

Perhaps wander through the hidden campi (squares) and over the countless bridges which link the criss-cross of canals, or take to the water on a romantic gondola to see a different side of Venice.

Here you are re-united with the rest of the world as you prepare for your return flight to the UK.
