A luxury rail journey in Europe recalls the Golden Age of rail travel. Private cabins dressed in plush fabrics and rich furnishings, tastefully appointed observation cars and uniformed attendants ensure travelers' comfort from start to finish. Of all the luxury trains in Europe, perhaps the most famous is the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Guests step into the pages of history on a journey between Venice, Italy, and exciting cities like Vienna, Prague, Berlin, and Paris. Lovingly restored sleeper cars date to the 1920s and 1930s and feature sumptuous fabrics and antique fixtures. The train boasts three restaurant cars, which also hail from the 1920s, each featuring unique and memorable touches and a stylish Bar Car where guests can relax over cocktails or coffee. A journey on this train is just one of the many luxurious options in Europe.
Other notable luxury European train tours include journeys on the Royal Scotsman, Scotland's cross country train showcasing the wild Highlands' epic beauty; the Golden Eagle connecting Moscow and Vladivostok on an 8,000-mile journey--one of the world's great train trips; and the Golden Eagle Danube Express traveling historic routes in Central and Eastern Europe. Each luxury train through Europe is wrapped in nostalgia while offering guests modern conveniences and authentic regional experiences. On these train holidays-some of the best in the world-the journey is the destination itself.
