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. Settle into your comfortable compartment while traveling northeast; 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 then retire to your compartment, which has now been transformed into a cozy bedroom.

Day 2: Arrive Prague

Breakfast is served in your compartment at a time to suit you. Spend the morning relaxing and gazing at the beautiful passing scenery as the train heads towards Prague, or chatting with fellow travelers over coffee in the Bar Car. Later, enjoy a three-course lunch in one of the other magnificent restaurant cars.

The train pulls in to Prague mid-afternoon. Transfer to your chosen hotel for two nights. (Accommodation and transfers not included.)

Day 3: Prague

Enjoy the many attractions of Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, at your leisure. The medieval streets of the Old Town and the Hradcany Castle are in pleasing contrast to the 20th-century buildings of Wenceslas Square.

Day 4: Depart Prague

Spend the morning further exploring the city before rejoining the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express bound for Paris. Afternoon tea and pastries are delivered by your steward as you relax in your private cabin. A leisurely four-course dinner is served, prepared on board by skilled French chefs. Enjoy a brandy or liqueur with convivial company in the bar car before retiring for the night.

Day 5: Arrive Paris or London

Continental breakfast is served in your cabin as the train arrives Paris early morning. Disembark in Paris by 8 a.m., or (highly recommended to continue) for those continuing to London:

A delicious brunch is served in the restaurant cars as you travel on towards the French coast. Disembark the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express and cross the Channel. Then board the cream and umber carriages of the Belmond British Pullman for the rest of 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.
