the iconic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, a Belmond train, will run through December for the first time this year. The train’s annual schedule has been expanded to include 10 routes during the holiday season, giving guests a unique luxury experience traversing the snowy European countryside. The train runs between Paris and Venice, Verona, Florence and Vienna.


Belmond

Train travel, made famous by Agatha Christie’s mystery novel (and subsequent film adaptations) Murder on the Orient Express, harks back to a different travel time period. The overnight stays are the epitome of classic luxury, with guests stepping into the original 1920s and ’30s carriages and immersing themselves in the experience from the moment they board.

Boarding begins just before dinner, where riders will be served a four-course meal prepared by Chef Jean Imbert, who will be putting together a seasonal menu especially for the routes in December. For those not ready to call it a night, the midnight brunch at Bar Car 3674 is truly one of a kind. Guests can continue the evening with lobster rolls and truffle club sandwiches while the pianist takes requests until the last guest retires for the night.

The rooms themselves are works of art, ranging from charming cabins to extravagant suites with 24-hour butler service and endless champagne. In the morning, breakfast is served in the passenger cabins, followed by a three-course meal before disembarking the train.

The magical travel experience starts at £2,920, or about $3,400 per person, for a one-night trip.
