The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express offers different routes, linking Venice with Paris, London, Vienna, Prague and Budapest, for example.

The writer Agatha Christie, a frequent traveller on this train, devised her novel Murder on the Orient-Express when, on a trip to Istanbul, snow left the train stranded in Turkey for six days.

Key points:

  • Location: The train covers several routes between different European cities but the classic journeys are those linking Venice to London and Paris.
  • Accommodation: Double cabins and wagon suites from the 1920s, in an art deco style.
  • Activities: Travelling on the Orient-Express is a unique experience, legendary in itself.
  • Cuisine: Sophisticated menus created by the train’s French chefs.
