The Orient Express name has become synonymous with intrigue and luxury travel, particularly travel between Paris and Istanbul. The Venice-Simplon Orient Express train is the most recent reincarnation, using original carriages from the 1920s and 30s.
"From Paris to Istanbul on the Orient Express -- Wouldn't that be an amazing trip? It'd be like living in a great book or movie." --> So true! It would be like a luxurious (and expensive) tribute to Agatha Christie!
