The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

Great railway journeys

Introduction

Step back in time to another era and watch the world go by on a luxurious great railway journey. Inspired by the great train journeys of the age of steam, a luxury train journey is a tour de force of leisure, style and romance.

Journeys on the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express include the classic route between London and Venice via Paris, and an epic six-day trip from Venice or Paris to Istanbul via Bucharest, Budapest and Vienna. Perhaps hop across the pond and board the Rocky Mountaineer, where gourmet dining and top-class cabins pull you away from the spectacular landscapes of Canada's Rocky Mountains and national parks.

Other in-demand luxury train journeys include the Maharajas’ Express, which visits the major sights of India, the Indian Pacific’s cross-country ride between Perth and Sydney via Australia’s spectacular Blue Mountains, and Rovos Rail’s Pride of Africa, ferrying passengers across South Africa, and into Namibia and Tanzania.
