The Kirker Difference

Arranged by us exclusively for our customers...

Guaranteed entrance ticket to the Doge's palace

The stunning 'Palazzo Ducale' was the residence of the Doges and is the richest symbol of Venetian cultural, military, political and economic history. The tickets will allow you to avoid the lengthy queues and gain access to the Museo Correr and the National Archaelogical Museum. If you have visited the Doge's Palace before, we would be delighted to provide tickets to the Guggenheim or Accademia Galleries instead.

Included Hotels


Palazzo Sant' Angelo
Venice, Italy, Europe

The Sant'Angelo, with its excellent location between the Rialto and Accademia Bridges, is housed in a grand Venetian palazzo.


Hotel Paris
Prague, Czech Republic, Europe

Opposite the Municipal House, in the heart of the atmospheric 'old town', the Paris is one of Prague's best known traditional hotels and one of the few where all the public rooms are still in the original Art Nouveau style.

Train Details

The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is more than just a train, it is an iconic travel experience which takes you back to an era when embarking on a journey was a glamorous and stylish affair which required fine-dining, high fashion and impeccable service. Any journey on board the train has the atmosphere of a special occasion, and it is the perfect place to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary in style.

The Cabins


The original 1920s and 1930s carriages formed part of the express trains which traversed Europe in the early 20th century ‘golden age’ of rail travel. Each has been lovingly restored by expert craftsmen, with gleaming livery and immaculate marquetry. The sleeping cars consist of comfortable banquette seating, with a window table and private washbasin concealed behind elegant oak doors. Whilst you are dining, your steward will transform the cabin into comfortable upper and lower berths with crisp damask sheets and fine blankets. Each carriage has its own dedicated steward, available 24 hours a day, and there is a mosaic-tiled lavatory at the end of the car.

For additional comfort and extra space, we highly recommend reserving a Cabin Suite, which is formed of two interconnecting cabins. This offers additional space during the day, and can be converted to two lower berths at night. Alternatively, three extravagant new Grand Suites were added to the train in 2018, each of which is named after a key destination on the route – Paris, Venice and Istanbul. The Grand Suites offer spacious accommodation with a double bed, living area and private en suite bathroom with shower, and passengers can enjoy meals in the privacy of their suites or in the main restaurant cars. Grand Suites sell out fast on peak dates so it is crucial to book well in advance – and supplements, which reflect the grandeur of the suites, are available on request.


Accommodation on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express




One of the highlights of your journey is the delicious cuisine – all meals are included in the price (although drinks are extra). Chef Christian Bodiguel and his expert team take fresh ingredients on board throughout the journey and create varied menus which belie their compact kitchen. Breakfast is served in your cabin at the time of your choice, and includes fresh patisserie and fruits. For lunch and dinner – an occasion for which guests are encouraged to dress in glamorous 1920s style – you can choose to dine in one of the three elegantly restored restaurant cars:

Côte d’Azur: Built in 1929 and decorated with Lalique glass panels.

Etoile du Nord: Built in England with a lining of intricate marquetry.

L’Oriental: Originally a Pullman kitchen car, decorated with black lacquer panels.

After dinner, you may enjoy a cocktail in the stylish piano bar – or perhaps a glass of champagne in the Art Deco champagne bar.
