Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is a proud supporter of Venice in Peril and the work the charity does to help preserve the beautiful city of Venice. This legendary train travels to and from Venice from March to November each year bringing people from all nationalities and walks of life to see this fascinating city and enjoy its delights.
As far back as the early 20th century when Society was first discovering the richness of Venice, the Orient-Express was deemed the only way to arrive. Today the distinctive blue and gold Wagons-Lits carriages still trace their way across Europe from London and Paris to re-create this golden age of travel. This strong connection encouraged VSOE to look at how it could build its relationship with Venice In Peril and offer long term support to the charity. Since 2005 Orient-Express has raised in excess of £60,000 towards various restoration projects, including work on an 18th Century screen that is housed in the City's Oriental Museum.
