Europe's most romantic journey
This legendary train has always been synonymous with the heyday of rail travel—the choice of royalty, celebrities and even exotic spies. Step aboard and you turn back time, entering a world of romance, indulgence—and a frisson of adventure. Dine in authentic art deco 1920s carriages and share travellers' tales with other passengers over glasses of Champagne in the Bar Car. The train's weekly route links London, Paris and Venice, interspersed with other destinations in central Europe.
