Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

Travel between a collection of magnificent cities on board the classic carriages, which will transport you back to the Golden Age of travel with their gleaming French-polished cherry wood marquetry, opulently embroidered upholstery, and vintage fittings.

Every part of your journey is designed to help you capture a little of the magic of a bygone era, whether that’s the gentle clinking of solid crystal glassware in the bar car, or the traditional hospitality of your besuited steward. Travelling on board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many, and one which more than lives up to its reputation.

Life on board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

From exquisite fine dining to sophisticated lounges and unparallel service, spend your days on board doing as much or as little as you like.


The train is made up of sleeping cars dating back to the 1920s and 30s, plus three dining cars, a bar car with an elegant baby grand piano which is played every evening before and after dinner, and an on-board boutique. The most famous carriages are undoubtedly the three dining cars, where all the guests of the train come together for sumptuous cuisine in the most genteel surroundings. The vibrant 3674 Bar Car, with its blue zebra and gold detailing, is also a guest favourite.


The cuisine on board is truly exceptional – its presentation is as such it’s hard to believe that it has been created on board a moving locomotive. Chef Jean Imbert blends the rich heritage of the train with his own passion for fresh seasonal produce to create moments of culinary perfection.

You will be asked to choose from one of two sittings each meal, where you will enjoy multi-course dining of the highest calibre, accompanied by perfectly paired wines. Each afternoon, you will also be offered a sumptuous afternoon tea.


While the carriages have differed over the years, the exquisite service remains unchanged. Every stay is unique to each guest, with your finely attired stewards available for your every whim and to transform your cabin between a sitting area or sleeping bunks. Whatever you need, capture the attention of a liveried blue-and-gold attendant and you’ll find every request taken care of. The stewards are specially chosen for their excellent attention to detail, and many have worked on board the train for decades.
