One of the stars of last week's International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM) conference in Cannes, France was Belmond's Venice-Simplon Orient Express.

The Belmond Venice-Simplon Orient Express is a luxury train that offers a unique and unforgettable travel experience. The train takes passengers on a journey through some of Europe's most beautiful cities, including Venice, Paris, London, and more.

The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express was first introduced in 1982, and has since become known for its opulent interiors and old-world charm. The train features beautifully appointed cabins and suites, each decorated in the style of the 1920s and 1930s.

The most popular itinerary is the Venice-Paris route, which takes passengers through the breathtaking Italian and French countryside. This route also includes a stop in the stunning city of Verona, where passengers can visit Juliet's balcony and the Arena, an ancient Roman amphitheater.

The train's dining car is a highlight of the journey, offering gourmet meals prepared by the train's talented chefs. The menu features a range of international dishes, as well as local specialties from the regions the train passes through. The dining car is also a great place to socialize and meet other passengers, as it offers a relaxed and elegant atmosphere.

Overall, the Belmond Venice-Simplon Orient Express (VSOE) offers a luxurious and unforgettable travel experience. With its opulent interiors, gourmet dining, and stunning routes, it is the perfect way to explore Europe in style. 

Luxury train offerings from several upscale hotel brands are expected to grow significantly over the next 3-5 years and existing luxury trains will continue to expand to additional markets.
