There is nothing more romantic than the great train journey, and Orient Express are one of the pioneers of luxury train travel.

So it only fits that, in May 2014, the iconic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express heads to the birthplace of luxury train travel - Brussels for the first time. Not only was the train's most synonymous detective, Hercule Poirot, born in Belgium but the concept of luxury train travel also has its roots there.

There are five new itineraries, ranging from one to four nights on board, and departures to and from Brussels are available from Venice, Vienna and Budapest.

Share in luxury train travel history and enjoy one of the ultimate romantic escapes - departures starting on 17 May from Venice to Brussels with prices from AUD$2,580 per person based on two people sharing a double cabin and include all table d'hote meals.

For further departure dates or to book please visit our website or FREECALL 1800 000 395.
