From Another Era: 10 Luxury Trains Around the World Slideshow

Slide 1 of 10
Venice Simplon

The Orient Express is the gold standard of five-star train travel. A white-glove service surrounds travelers on the classic, Art Deco Venice Simplon train, which works its way from London to Venice to Rome, Budapest, Paris, Prague, Dresden, Krakow, and back again. The retro appeal is in every detail from the small bedside lamps to the sterling silver tableware. Dine in one of three styled cars: the Côte D’Azur, Étoile du Nord, or L’Oriental on dishes like steamed salmon and spinach roulade, buttered baby vegetables, and cocoa wafers layered with custard, fruits, and spicy wine.
