Embark on one of the world’s finest travels – the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Travel in luxury and elegance across Europe, passing through alluring cities.
King Boris of Bulgaria once drove it through his country. A French President fell off it in his pyjamas. Isadora Duncan wore a veil (and little else) aboard it. Robert Baden Powel and Mata Hari traveled clandestinely on it. It inspired Agatha Christie, and now you could experience its magic and romance for yourself. Whether you choose to travel as yourself or incognito, its mystery will shape your journey. The original Venice Simplon-Orient-Express first left Paris for Constantinople in October 1883 and was the most glamorous way of crossing the Continent. That much has not changed, but today there is a choice rail journeys within the Belmond collection – any of which will be the most fascinating topic of conversation at your next dinner party.
