But a trip with the Orient Express is not just a luxury vacation. It's an historic and famous train, even a mith, some would say. Many people have traveled with it along the years: nobles, royalty, VIPs, business man. The tourists are being treated like royalty, and they can serve all kinds of French specialties in the restaurant car, from caviar to foie gras and different types of cheese. The journey lasts for six days, passing through six countries. On its annual trip, the train stops in Venice, Budapest and Bucharest, cities which the passengers have the chance to visit. This route is exactly like the original one, from 1883. The Orient Express offers the experience of a trip like in the past, with decorations identical with the ones from the '20s, so passengers can relieve those moments.
Reservations have to be made one year prior, if you wanna catch a ride with the Orient Express.
