The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express (VSOE) train is simply quite unlike anything you will ever experience….
A work of art in itself and a true Art Deco icon, the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train offers some of Europe’s greatest and most romantic train journeys. You can be assured of travelling in luxury and style throughout the course of your trip. Truly a journey to aspire to.
The original Orient Express, inaugurated in 1883, ran between Paris and Istanbul and soon became a byword for elegance and Art Deco luxury. Today, you can still travel in luxury on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express as far as Istanbul and to a host of European destinations including Paris, Budapest, Venice, Vienna and, from 2016, Berlin.
From the 1920s to the 1930s, the carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train played a significant role in the golden age of travel. Today VSOE is presently owned by Belmond Ltd and every carriage has been lovingly restored to its former glory, recreating one of the finest luxury experiences the world has ever known. With exceptional cuisine, attentive service, opulent cabins and wonderful scenery, a journey on this iconic train is not to be missed.
