Welcome aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express for an unforgettable journey from Verona to Brussels. Leave one beautiful European city for another as you travel in style onboard one of the most famous and most luxurious trains in the world. Think fine dining, well-stocked bar, live music and ornate décor and you have a journey you’ll never forget.
Stepping onboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is like stepping back in time to the 1920s and the Golden Age of Travel. Made up of 17 original and beautifully restored carriages, each with their own unique style and stories to tell, there is plenty to explore when onboard. With three restaurant cars, a beautiful Art Deco inspired bar car and a selection of cabins, it’s easy to see why this is one of the most famous and sought-after trains in the world.
A beautifully simple yet unforgettable journey, you board in Verona for a relaxing afternoon as you enjoy the beautiful Italian scenery. As evening begins, you’re treated to a four-course dinner, prepared fresh onboard by a team of talented chefs. The evening is then yours to enjoy as you head to the bar car to listen to the live pianist, to sample the cocktails and converse with fellow passengers. The next day includes a breakfast and brunch before arriving in Brussels.
Welcome aboard! Your journey begins as you are shown to your cabin by one of the stewards where you are free to settle in and watch the scenery start to change as the train departs Verona. Now is the perfect opportunity to take a stroll through the train and explore each of the unique carriages in all their glory. After a delicious three-course lunch, a relaxing afternoon beckons as the train continues through the stunning scenery of Italy. Indulgent pastries are served later that afternoon with tea and coffee. As evening begins it’s time to dress to impress as you enjoy a lavish four-course dinner prepared fresh onboard by a team of chefs. Why not then head to the bar car for a class of your favourite beverage and conversation with fellow passengers, before heading back to your cabin to retire for the night.
A continental breakfast is served in your cabin as the train arrives at Paris Gare de l’Est Station. We stop for a brief moment making now the ideal time to depart momentarily to stretch you legs. The journey continues on to Brussels where you have the opportunity to enjoy a delicious brunch before admiring the onboard boutique.
