Orient Express

"I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming. Suddenly you find, at the age of 50, that a whole new life has opened before you."

- Agatha Christie (1890 - 1976)

The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is a true legend. The very thought of your private event on the Orient Express evokes romance, adventure and a travel experience like no other. The Orient-Express has always been involved with mystery, both fictional and real.

Invenia brings back the glamour and intrigue of yesteryear. This all starts as you and your invited guests arrive at the Hotel Cipriani in Venice. This legendary hotel is a 15th century palazzo on Giudecca Island, located beside the Venetian lagoon looking across the water toward Doge's Palace. Prior to the welcome reception on property, each guest is given their unique identity, complete with a collection of period costumes. We now take a step back to the twenties, a time of luxury travel and special experiences.

The next day, all guests are transported in style to the Venice train station. At the station, the period celebration unfolds with a host of Venetian carnival characters. The journey to your special destination begins. You and your invited guests are met by London's finest actors portraying characters from the celebrated novels. They, as you, have all assumed identities which unfold into a detailed and complex plot. This adventure culminates at the gala dinner on board the Orient-Express.

Murder on the Orient-Express truly captures each and everyone's imagination.
