All aboard the Orient Express with Citalia

The leading Italian holiday specialist is offering significant savings on luxury trips with Venice-Simplon Orient Express

Citalia, the leading Italian holiday specialist, is offering incredible savings of up to £1,435 on August 2016 holidays that combine a city break in romantic Venice with an overnight stay on the iconic Venice-Simplon Orient Express.

The offer is available on single Venice-Simplon Orient Express journeys, as part of a Citalia holiday package to Venice, with prices starting at £2,249 per person.

The Orient Express is one of the world’s most famous rail journeys, synonymous with timeless luxury, elegance and old-school glamour. This summer, the Belmond-owned train further enhanced its luxury appeal with the launch of a new on-board champagne bar, so passengers can relax in its plush carriages and toast the stunning scenery with a glass of bubbles.

Travellers looking to experience a slice of the golden age of travel can fly directly from the UK to Venice and spend three nights in the famous floating city, exploring its intriguing network of canals and breathtaking architecture. On the fourth day, they can board the opulent Art Deco train in Venice to make the exciting journey to London, with an overnight stay in one of the exquisite carriages. The journey also offers passengers the opportunity to don their finery and enjoy an unforgettable dinner in one of the unique, beautifully restored 1920’s restaurant cars.

Citalia is offering a four night luxury break to the romantic city of Venice including travel on the Venice-Simplon Orient Express from £2,249 per person. The price includes an outbound flight from London Gatwick to Venice with British Airways, a private transfer in Venice, three nights on a B&B basis at the stunning Londra Palace, with wonderful views of the Venice Lagoon, and one night full board on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express from Venice to London Victoria in a Twin Cabin. The price includes the special saving for Citalia customers of £1,435 per couple and is based on 7 August 2016 departures.
