There’s a certain romance to train travel harkening back to a bygone era, when the infamous Orient Express was the epitome
of traveling in style.
The iconic rail line, which developed the Paris to Istanbul route in 1883, offered a rolling palace for travelers replete with silk sheets, glass panels, precious wood paneling and an unparalleled gastronomic experience. After a 45- year absence, the legendary rail line has announced six new trains which will debut in Italy called “The Orient Express La Dolce Vita.”
Drawing influence from the 1960s, the golden age of Italian design, the new cars promise retro luxe melded with a modern aesthetic.
Each elegantly appointed train will have one honor suite, 12 deluxe cabins and 18 suites as well as a five-star restaurant focused on Italian regional dining, staying true to the original Orient Express concept of a boutique hotel on the rails.
Designed for explorers who long to experience life richly, The Orient Express La Dolce Vita is an unforgettable option for those who appreciate the journey as much as the destination. |87
