The Itinerary

Day 1: Depart Venice on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express
Board the splendid Wagons-Lits carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express at Venice Santa Lucia station. Throughout your journey you will be attended by your own personal steward. After you have settled into your comfortable cabin it will soon be time to dress for dinner. Why not sip an aperitif in the bar car, listening to the sounds of the baby grand piano before taking your seat in one of the beautifully restored restaurant cars. After dinner you may want to linger in the bar and when you are ready you can retire to your cabin, which has now been transformed into a cozy bedroom.

Day 2: Vienna
Breakfast is served in your cabin before arriving at Vienna station in the morning. Transfer to your chosen hotel for two nights (accommodation and transfers not included).

Day 3: Vienna
Enjoy the many attractions of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

Day 4: On board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express
Rejoin the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express in the afternoon and settle back into your private cabin. A delicious afternoon tea is served by your personal steward in the comfort of your cabin. A leisurely four course dinner is served, prepared on board by our skilled French chefs. Enjoy a brandy or liqueur with convivial company in the Bar before retiring for the night.

Day 5: Paris or London
Continental breakfast is brought to you by your steward as you travel towards Paris. Disembark in Paris, or for those continuing to London:

A delicious brunch is served in the restaurant cars as you travel on towards the Channel. After crossing the Channel board the cream and umber carriages of the British Pullman for the journey to London. A traditional afternoon tea accompanied by a glass of champagne is served to you at your table as you watch the gentle scenery of Kent pass by before arriving at your destination, London Victoria.
