Railway Journeys – The Orient Express

The famous Venice Simplon Orient Express train route will help you explore Europe in style. There is no better way to see the best of Europe. The original Orient Express ran between Paris and Istanbul, but new routes were developed. In its pre-war years at least, it was also associated with elegance and luxury and culinary excellence, and it is these qualities that characterise today’s private train, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
