Venice Simplon


The Train

The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is quite unlike anything else your clients will have experienced. Carriages date to the 1920s and '30s, lovingly restored to their former glory to recreate one of the finest luxury experiences the world has ever known.

During the day, Double Cabins are configured as a lounge with a banquette sofa, footstool and small table. At night it becomes a cosy bedroom with an upper and lower bed.

Cabin Suites consist of two interconnecting cabins. Choose between two single beds, or keep one cabin as a lounge with upper and lower beds in the other.

All cabins have their own washbasin cabinet with hot and cold water, complete with soft towels, soap, dressing robes and slippers. A lavatory is situated at the end of each carriage.



food venice simplonExceptional European cuisine is freshly prepared in the train's kitchen by Chef Christian Bodiguel and his skilled team.

Fresh ingredients are taken on board at stops along the route. Set-menus are included as part of your trip; drinks and à la carte options are available at an additional charge.

There are three beautifully restored 1920s restaurant cars. Côte d'Azur, boasting Lalique glass panels, Etoile du Nord with its beautiful marquetry, and L' Oriental, decorated in black lacquer.

At the heart of the train, the stylish Bar Car offers a welcoming environment in which to relax over cocktails or coffee. Chat to fellow guests or enjoy music from the resident pianist.
