Day 1

Depart Venice

Passengers check in at least an hour before departure at the Venice Simplon Orient Express office at Venice Santa Lucia. Check-in opens a couple of hours before departure. You can check your large bags through to your final destination (but remember you'll need overnight gear for the train).

Board the splendid Wagons-Lits carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express at Venice Santa Lucia station mid-morning. Your steward will show you to your private compartment and will attend you throughout your journey. After you have settled in, enjoy a three-course lunch in one of the beautifully restored restaurant cars. Spend the afternoon relaxing in the comfort of your compartment gazing at the beautiful passing scenery of the Italian Dolomites and the Swiss Alps, or chatting with fellow travelers in the Bar Car. Afternoon tea is served in your compartment.

The maitre d' will take your reservations for dinner. Although not a prerequisite, black-tie certainly adds to the sense of occasion and atmosphere on board. Sip an aperitif in the Bar Car, listening to the sounds of the baby grand piano before taking your seat in another of the magnificent restaurant cars. A leisurely four-course dinner is served, prepared on board by French chefs who are not only skilled but friendly, too, when you have time, next day, to chat on the platform. After dinner you may want to linger in the Bar and when you are ready, retire to your compartment which has now been transformed into a cozy bedroom.

Day 2

Paris to London

Breakfast is served in your compartment by your steward at a time that suits you. The train pulls into Paris Gare de l'Est. Take this opportunity to stretch your legs along the platform and watch the bustling activity; passengers boarding, chefs choosing produce for brunch, Parisians coming and going. The whistle will blow, and it's time to hop back on board. A delicious brunch is served in the restaurant cars as you travel on towards the French coast for the Channel crossing.

Join the cream and umber carriages of the British Pullman for the journey to London. A traditional English afternoon tea accompanied by a glass of champagne is served to you at your table and you watch the gentle scenery of Kent pass by. Suddenly, you are drawing into London Victoria Station (arrival around 5:30 pm). It may be the end of your journey but the memories will last a lifetime.
