Signature Venice Journey
3 Nights: London to Venice
A stay at the world-famous Hotel Cipriani is the perfect complement to a journey on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
Spend the night at The Ritz. The excitement of the West End is at your doorstep: theatre in Shaftsbury Avenue, art at The Royal Academy, a stroll through Hyde Park, shopping in Bond Street and much more...
London to Venice
After breakfast transfer to London Victoria station and set off on the vintage carriages of the British Pullman. Emerge in France to be greeted by the magical sight of the gleaming navy and gold carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. After settling into your private cabin, change for dinner and perhaps visit the Bar Car for an aperitif.
Awake this morning in the Swiss Alps and, after a continental breakfast in your cabin, relax and enjoy the spectacular mountain scenery as it unfolds.
Lunch is served as the train enters Italy. Pass through vineyards and by pretty villages before crossing the causeway and arriving in Venice that evening. Continue by boat along the city’s magnificent canals, and over the lagoon, to the Hotel Cipriani for a three-night stay.
Relax and enjoy one of the world's most romantic destinations. On a morning of your choice, explore the city with a specialist guide on a private walking tour. Say "arrivederci" to Venice in style with dinner on your last night in the sumptuous surroundings of the Fortuny Restaurant.
Guests at Hotel Cipriani can enjoy a choice of special itineraries including "Venice as a movie dream", visiting the piazzas and campos made famous by such movies as The Talented Mr Ripley, The Italian Job, several of the James Bond films and the iconic Don't Look Now.
Alternatively, an evening bacaro tour lets you navigate the picturesque corners of the city with stops along the way for some memorable tastings at some of Venice's renowned culinary establishments. Other itineraries are available.
