Departing 20 Sep 19
The most-famous railway journey in the world, a journey on board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is a true bucket-list adventure. Combine this with a stay in Lake Garda and a Mediterranean cruise on board the beautiful Queen Victoria and you’ve got a true Mediterranean masterpiece.
Sweep from Southampton to Venice on board the exquisite Queen Victoria over ten memorable nights. A ship designed with all the modern conveniences but with the splendour evocative of great ocean liners past; every fine detail, from her plush, elegantly decorated public rooms to her gourmet dining and luxurious cabins simply exudes class.
During this special journey which includes a maiden voyage to Croatian Hvar, you’ll discover the beauty of the Adriatic. Explore modernist architecture and Roman ruins in Spanish Cartagena, before Corfu showcases its idyllic, lush scenery. Next it’s on to Croatia where you’ll visit the magnificent red-roofed city of Dubrovnik and the glamourous, lavender filled Hvar, before the soaring bridges and enchanting canals of Venice beckon at the end of your cruise.
Lake Garda awaits where you’ll spend five wonderful nights. Italy’s beautiful lakes are one of the country’s most scenic regions, where the Northern Alps tumble down into shimmering waters, dotted with silver-leafed olive trees and pretty villages. Whether you spend your time wandering through enchanting towns, exploring Roman ruins or hopping on a cable car to the snow-peaked mountains; Lake Garda is simply a chocolate box of discoveries waiting to be uncovered.
Some might say we’ve saved the best till last, for your journey home will be spent encased in the absolute luxury of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Enjoy a series of unforgettable moments; dine on a delicious champagne brunch; relax in your opulent cabin surrounded by plush fabrics and sip a cool cocktail in Bar 3674, accompanied by the strains of the soulful pianist as glittering lights appear on the passing hillsides. A journey on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is as close to time travel as it’s possible to get.
