BLOW OFF SOME STEAM
With how fast-paced our lifestyles have become, one would yearn for some semblance of casual if not slow form of travel, where the delight of the holiday is received from the journey and not the destination. Welcome aboard the elegant carriages of the Venice SimplonOrient Express, a hidden jewel amongst a tide of rushed and packed transportation systems. An 18-carriage train that reintroduces us back to the glitzy and glamorous days of the 1920s, this private luxury train traverses across Europe hosting trips between Venice, Verona, London, Budapest and Paris. The rooms available on board, from the solo traveller ‘Single Cabin’ to the family-sized ‘Grand Suites’ are all decked out with old Hollywood class and style, but that’s not all. For the Gourmand who requires a varied palate, there are 3 dining carriages upon which are 3 restaurants and a bar, reverberating the iconic art deco interior of the 1920s’, provided of course with unique dining experiences made from local, seasonal produce by Executive Chef, Christian Bodiguel, who has been aboard the SimplonOrient Express for 30 years now. Enjoy this slow paced journey across Europe, and feel like a vintage movie star in this once in a lifetime experience.
