Your vacation begins in Paris, where you'll check in at your hotel for a two-night stay. Settle in to your comfortable accommodations before heading out to explore the romantic ‘City of Light'.

In the evening, enjoy a riotous evening of music and colour at the legendary Moulin Rouge. (Overnight in Paris) B

 DAY 3 - BOARD THE VENICE SIMPLON-ORIENT-EXPRESS
Board the gleaming blue and gold carriages of the Continental Wagons-Lits today, where your steward will show you to your compartment. After you have settled into your comfortable quarters, it will soon be time to dress for dinner. Visit the famous bar car for an Agatha Christie Bellini before moving on to one of the magnificent restaurant cars, where you will be served a delicious four-course meal.

Awake to the magnificent scenery of the Swiss Alps as a delicious continental breakfast is served in your compartment. Relax as the scenery rolls by or take a trip to the bar car for a coffee. At lunchtime, enjoy a leisurely three course meal served in another of the beautiful restaurant cars. Make a visit to the onboard boutique to purchase souvenirs or return to your compartment as the train travels through the Italian Dolomites. Later, your steward will bring a sumptuous afternoon tea.

 DAY 5 - VENICE
Start today with a short walking tour with a local guide for some stories of the city's labyrinthine streets and campos (squares), then enjoy a gondola ride down the Grand Canal. A visit to Venice is not complete without a ride on a Gondola, a mode of transport that has been in existence in Venice for over 1000 years! Soak up the vibrant atmosphere in St. Mark’s Square, while marvelling at the beautiful mosaics that adorn the Basilica and maybe visit the Doge's Palace, with its origins dating back to the 14th century. It is advisable to take a tour of this important Venetian landmark to fully understand its extensive history. (Overnight in Venice) B

 DAY 6 - VENICE TO ROME
After breakfast, sit back and relax on your rail journey to Rome. Pass quaint Italian villages and rolling fields before arriving at Rome Termini. On arrival in Rome, check in at your hotel for two-night stay. Discover the Eternal City at your own pace. From the striking walls of the Colosseum to the ancient Pantheon temple, Rome is the largest open-air museum in the world. Stop for an ice-cream on the steps of the Trevi fountain or wait until dinner to enjoy a proper Roman pizza in one of the countless trattorias. (Overnight in Rome) B

 DAY 7 - ROME
It's an early start today, but all is worth it as you explore the wonders of the Vatican museums and the incredible Sistine Chapel ceiling painted by Michaelangelo before the crowds arrive.  Then in the afternoon perhaps walk in the footsteps of the gladiators at the imposing Colosseum and walk in the footsteps of Cesar around the Forum.  Why not mix art and nature at the lush Villa Borghese gardens or take a well-earned break with a glass of wine on the Piazza Navona and reminisce on your fantastic vacation. (Overnight in Rome) B

DAY 8 - YOUR JOURNEY ENDS IN ROME
After a final breakfast at your hotel this morning, check out and continue with your onward journey. Speak to one of our knowledgeable Travel Consultants if you'd like to extend your holiday, perhaps travelling by rail south through Italy to Naples and the Italian Riviera. B
