Spend an unforgettable 5 nights travelling between the two famous canal cities of Europe, from the waterways of the “Floating City” of Venice to Amsterdam; the “Venice of the North”, in luxury with a journey on the world’s most famous train, Venice Simplon-Orient-Express.
- Day 1 – Fly to Venice where you will be transferred to the city centre close to your hotel to spend the night
- Day 2 – You will be transferred to the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express for your sensational overnight journey. As soon as you step on board, the sense of a time gone by is unmistakable; from the painstakingly-restored marquetry that lines the hallways and bijou cabins to the beautiful René Lalique glass panelling. Dinner is served in one of the three gorgeous restaurant carriages while your steward transforms your cabin in to cosy sleeping quarters with crisp linen sheets for your overnight journey.
- Day 3 -Following a continental breakfast served in your cabin, the train will continue onwards and you’ll enjoy a sumptuous lunch in one of the restaurant cars. There is time to wander the train or simply relax in your cabin, or communal areas. Perhaps browse the on-board boutique for exclusive souvenirs. Also included is a selection of delectable pastries before you alight in Amsterdam in the evening and transfer to your Amsterdam hotel, where you will stay for three nights.
- Day 4 & 5 -During your stay in the fascinating city of Amsterdam, we have included a full-day excursion to experience three quintessential icons of the Dutch countryside — windmills, cheese and wooden clogs, as well as included Floriade Expo Entrance tickets (does not include transfers). For the remainder of your time there is a wealth of things to do – make like the locals and hire a bike, visit the museum quarter and take in a Van Gogh or two, hop on a canal cruise and enjoy the city’s famous nightlife.
- Day 6 – Return to London
