Italy’s new Orient Express La Dolce Vita, train launch

With the launch of Orient Express La Dolce Vita, train travel in Italy is about to get even more luxurious.

Pre-reservations are now open for the 2024 service, and owner Accor Group has revealed a sneak peek at the lavish carriages.

From north to south, the train will stop at new Orient Express-branded hotels in Rome and Venice along the way.

Experience onboard Italy’s Orient Express La Dolce Vita

Orient Express La Dolce Vita’s interiors reflect the famous Italian design of the 1960s. Milan-based Dimorestudio designed its 12 deluxe cabins (75 sq ft), 18 suites (118 sq ft), and onboard restaurant using curved lines, geometric patterns, and retro color schemes.

Orient Express Lounge passengers can enjoy Turkish guitars and Italian sweets and tipples while waiting for departure.

Onboard, fine Italian wine and seasonal cuisine will be served by uniformed bellboys.

Live Italian music will accompany games of chess, backgammon, and Scopa, an Italian card game, in the Bar Car.

By nightfall, the lights will dim, the pianist will play, and crew members will don bow ties.

What routes will the Orient Express take?

Orient Express La Dolce Vita offers one- and two-night itineraries.

Itineraries include ‘Montalcino, en route to fine wine’, which explores the vineyards of Tuscany, and ‘The wonders of the Tyrrhenian Sea, from Rome to Palermo’, which travels along Sicily’s coast.

Routes between Rome, Venice and Portofino and Rome, Venice, and Siena, include two-night journeys.

You can also visit Matera’s UNESCO World Heritage sites from Rome, as well as travel through Sicily from Palermo to the Valley of the Temples to Mount Etna; and a truffle and wine tour from Rome to Monferrato.

In a deluxe cabin, prices start at €2,000 per person per night.
