About the tour

Take the opulent Venice Simplon Orient Express between two romantic cities, Venice and Paris. Spending time in Venice, a city of islands connected by bridges and walkways, languishing in its winding streets and tasting it delicate dishes, is an honour for any traveller, but coupling this with a trip aboard the Venice Simplon Orient Express is a decadent journey like no other. This vintage train, with its art deco interiors and atmosphere of luxury, elevates your Venice trip to the height of sophistication.
