Rail journey

This is the world’s ultimate rail journey, bringing you in unmatched style between London and Italy’s floating city aboard the iconic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.

It all begins with a trip on the Belmond British Pullman which, with a delicious, wine-paired lunch included, will see you in style to Folkestone and your channel crossing. Once in Calais, the glamour is taken up a notch as you step onboard those famous blue-and-gold carriages and into a world straight out of the roaring twenties. Indeed, from the elegance of your oak-panelled cabin to the art-deco splendour of the bar and dining cars, the scene will be set for a truly unforgettable experience.

Then, as you roll south towards Paris and on towards the Alps, you’ll be treated to gourmet dining inspired by the train’s route – think lobster from Brittany and lamb from Mont St Michel – and served in the very finest traditions of elegant, white-glove service. Once dinner’s at an end, perhaps head to the bar car for a night cap before setting into your cabin, which you’ll find transformed into bunks by your steward.

In the morning, you’ll wake to views of the Swiss Alps and a continental breakfast served in your cabin. Then, enjoy a leisurely time taking in the scenery, first of the Alps, then the Dolomites, as you sit down to a three-course lunch, served in the dining car, and then a sumptuous afternoon tea as you cross the Venetian Lagoon before disembarking in Venice itself. On arrival, you’ll be met and transferred to your chosen five-star hotel, a luxurious base for exploring the treasures of Venice, the highlights of which you’ll see on an included private walking tour, complete with priority entry to the Doge’s Palace.
