Your Orient Express Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 – London Gatwick or Heathrow to Venice

Your holiday begins as you check-in for your flight from London Gatwick or Heathrow airport to Venice Marco Polo airport. 

On arrival at Venice Marco Polo airport make your way to the jetty for your private water taxi transfer. 

Your water taxi will transfer you in the best possible style to your hotel for 2 nights, the charming, friendly and highly-rated Hotel Ai Mori d’Oriente (4 star), enjoying a quiet location just 10-15 minutes’ walk from the Rialto Bridge.

Day 2 – Venice

Step out in Venice and allow this unique and captivating city to carry where it will. Enjoy Venice, at dusk and after dark when all the crowds have gone home. 

From St. Mark’s Square to the Rialto Bridge, a gondola ride on the Grand Canal to a visit inside the stunning Doges Palace, feel yourself unwind as you wander amid the myriad of canals along blissfully traffic-free alleyways and campi (squares). 

You have plenty of time to discover the city’s luminous quality which emanates from the colours of its painted palazzo, ornate stone bridges and Byzantine basilicas all reflected against the tapestry of canals and lagoons. 

A short boat ride will lead you to pretty islands on the lagoon, including Murano, home of glass-blowing and colourful Burano, where lace and linen abound.

Day 3 - Venice & Switzerland aboard the Orient Express

This morning after breakfast your water taxi takes you to Venice Santa Lucia station. 

Here you board the splendid Wagons-Lits carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Your steward will show you to your private cabin and will attend you throughout your journey. After you have settled in it will soon be time to enjoy a three-course lunch in one of the beautifully restored restaurant cars. 

Spend the afternoon relaxing in the comfort of your cabin gazing at the beautiful passing scenery of the Italian Dolomites and the Swiss Alps, or chatting with fellow travellers in the Bar Car. 

Afternoon tea is served in your cabin. After further relaxation it will soon be time to dress for dinner. 

Why not sip a pre-dinner cocktail before making your way to one of the magnificent restaurant cars. Here you will be served a delicious four-course dinner, prepared by skilled French chefs. 

After dinner you may want to linger in the bar car, listening to the sound of the baby grand piano. When you are ready, retire to your compartment, which has now been transformed into a cosy bedroom.

Day 4 – Arrival into Paris – Paris to London

Breakfast is served in your cabin by your steward at a time to suit you. The train pulls into Paris Gare de l’Est where you disembark the Orient Express.

After a short transfer you leave Paris to head to London by First class rail. 

All too soon it is time to prepare to disembark as your train draws into London Victoria station and the final leg of your journey home.
