City | Food & wine | Rail journey

This is the ideal taste of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, where fine dining and cocktail indulgences are wrapped in early-20th-century grandeur and served up by personal attendants. But, this curated itinerary combines two greats of the original European Grand Tour; Venice and Vienna with personal experiences.

Day by day itinerary

Days 1-2

You’ll start your holiday in style, with included airport-lounge access before your flight to Venice. Here, a water taxi will be waiting to bring you on the evocative journey along the Venetian waterways, right up to your luxury hotel. While both of our options are superbly located on the Grand Canal, our Deluxe offering is a special favourite; it’s an 18th-century palace complete with chandeliers and frescoes by pupils of Tiepolo. Whichever you choose, however, you’ll have all of the city’s delights on your doorstep. Perhaps catch an opera, admire the stunning architecture in St. Mark’s Square or follow in Hemingway’s footsteps with a Bellini cocktail in Harry’s Bar.

Stay: Hotel L'Orologio, Venice (Superior) or Baglioni Hotel Luna, Venice (Deluxe)

Day 3
Aboard the Orient Express

After breakfast today, an included transfer will bring you to Venice’s station. Here, you’ll be welcomed by your personal steward, who’ll escort you to your private cabin aboard the Orient Express. Settling in among the dark-wood and rich fabrics, you’ll then set off across the Venetian Lagoon, the train glistening in its golden livery. As you sweep through rural Italy, change for dinner – a multi-course extravaganza served up among the gorgeous lacquerwork and Lalique glass of the restaurant cars. Then, perhaps cap the day off with a drink in the bar car, accompanied by the twinkling ivories of the resident pianist.

Stay: Venice Simplon-Orient-Express (Deluxe)

Meals: B D

Days 4-5

As you roll into the Austrian capital, you’ll be treated to a sumptuous Continental breakfast, served in the intimacy of your private cabin. Then, after disembarking at Vienna Central Station, make your way to your central accommodation. You’ll have two days to explore Vienna at your own pace, strolling along wide, tree-lined boulevards to check out its café scene, imperial palaces and world-famous concert halls. It’s all predicated on the Habsburgs’ dynastical might, still evident across the city’s grand architecture.

Stay: NH Collection Wien Zentrum, Vienna (Superior) / Grand Ferdinand, Vienna (Deluxe)

Meals: B L

Day 6
Vienna to London
