For the first time, Europe's most iconic train service, the Venice Simplon-Orient Express is offering winter journeys, with 12 one-night getaways available this December.
Expanding beyond its annual season (typically March to November), the decadent Belmond train is available on 10 routes:
Venice to Paris, Verona to Paris, Venice to Paris (via Rome and Florence),
Paris to Vienna, Vienna to Paris, Paris to Venice, and Paris to Verona.
Life on board this journey is an indulgent affair. Dress to impress and head to one of the hand-restored 1920s restaurant cars for a sophisticated dinner. Mingle with like-minded travellers as a live pianist sets the scene in the Bar Car. And cosy up in your private cabin as the world passes you by. This is a thrilling train journey through Europe like no other.
Prices for the one-night trips start at approx. EUR 3,000, per person.
