The Beau Idéal: London/Paris to Venice
Elegant Art-deco carriages with sumptuous blue fabrics, beautiful hand blown glass lamps, and gleaming gold details set the scene for the worlds most seductive train journey. A journey that takes travellers from London (with an initial journey on the Pullman) or Paris to Verona or Venice (as well as Prague, Budapest and Vienna) for one night of peerless elegance, one night of sublime 1920’s glamour, one night of the finest haute cuisine, and one exceptional journey through emotive alpine scenery.
Aboard the Venice Simplon Orient Express you’ll have a choice of two dining cars, each serving the same cuisine, but within a uniquely appointed car, a piano bar with a sleek baby grand and a menu of train travel-inspired original cocktails created by head barman Walter Nisi.
Accommodation is in an enviable collection of cabins and suites that as of recently include three phenomenal Grand Suites — the first cabins aboard the Venice Simplon to include private bathrooms. Each Grand Suite has been painstakingly designed and finished with lovingly rendered details by a small collection of master craftsmen, in order to conjure visions of the cities that each suite shares its name with: Paris, Venice and Istanbul. And of course, the service is some of the most delightful, glamorous and efficient on the planet.
