The renovation of the mythical train continues for a market launch in 2023. The train that will cross Europe unveils its suites to bring three levels of comfort to the passengers of the future Orient Express.
The restoration of the train continues with the expertise of French craftsmen who have been inspired by the landscape to create the atmosphere of the cabins. The Black Forest inspired the decor of La Forêt, the countryside of northern Italy inspired La Campagne, mountains and lakes are the others sources of inspiration.
At the introductory price of £5500 the Orient Express suites promise a journey through the Czech Republic (stops in Prague), France (stops in Paris and Cannes), Italy (stops in Florence, Venice, Rome and Verona), Austria (stops in Vienna and Innsbruck), Hungary (stops in Budapest), Romania (stops in Bucharest), Switzerland (stops in Geneva), Belgium (stops in Brussels) and the Netherlands (stops in Amsterdam). Once a year, it also makes the historic trip from Paris to Istanbul.
Operated under the Belmond brand, the train will offer three levels of comfort - historic cabins, suites and Grand Suites. All three categories have been designed and restored to accommodate families as well.
