Venice Simplon Orient Express Route

As its name suggests, the train originates in the ancient Italian city of Venice. Owing to its construction upon marshland, Venice is largely navigated by a system of canals rather than streets. The city is renowned for its architecture, from its stilted houses to its magnificent palaces and also possesses a rich cultural and artistic heritage and excellent cuisine.

On its journey from Venice the train passes through Italy's spectacular Dolomite Mountains. Regarded as one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in the world, the Dolomites achieved UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2009. Although the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express no longer travels through the historic Simplon Tunnel which connects Italy with Switzerland, the alternative Alpine passes it uses continue to provide passengers with magnificent mountain panoramas.
