Immerse yourself in the enchanting melodies of La Dolce Vita. Surrender to the allure of sheer luxury and the delights of an iconic train as you embark on an unforgettable voyage through Italy.

50 years ago, Georges Nagelmackers transformed his visions into reality by inaugurating the inaugural luxury Orient Express trains across Europe. Today, the saga is revitalized in Italy. You're cordially invited to embark on a captivating expedition aboard the Orient Express La Dolce Vita train.

A homage to the glamour, zest for life, and artistic fervour of the 1960s, La Dolce Vita, an Orient Express train, pays homage to life, the essence of freedom, well-being, and pleasure.

Orient Express La Dolce Vita is designed to explore the hidden gems and iconic cities of Italy, offering a luxurious and unique travel experience in refurbished 1980s carriages. This journey embodies a fusion of the "La Dolce Vita" lifestyle and the iconic Orient Express spirit.

Separate from the Venice Simplon Orient Express with La Dolce Vita we will offer 8 itineraries departing from either Rome or Palermo and travelling towards the North, the South, and Central Italy. The itineraries range from either 3 days / 2 nights or 2 days / 1 night.

Embark on a fantastical journey aboard a train adorned with sumptuous decor conceived by the imaginative and daring Dimorestudio, the architecture and design firm founded by Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran, both deeply inspired by the artisanship and golden era of Italian design.  Indulge in an unforgettable odyssey within prestigious train cabins and suites as you uncover the marvels of Italy.

Step into a world of unparalleled elegance aboard the Orient Express La Dolce Vita, a masterpiece crafted by the visionary architects of Dimorestudio. Prepare yourself for a voyage unlike any other—a fusion of luxury and innovation redefining the art of travel.
