La Dolce Vita Orient Express to Open Bookings in April 2024

La Dolce Vita Orient Express will officially open sales this April, marking an important milestone for the luxurious train travel experience taking guests across Italy. The opening dates were shared at this year’s DUCO Travel Summit in Milan, Italy—complete with the unveiling of the mock-up cabin of the train and introducing Samy Ghachem, the newly appointed general manager of La Dolce Vita Orient Express.

This moment follows a successful pre-sales period initiated in December 2022, during which 400 cabins have already been pre-booked. La Dolce Vita Orient Express marks the first Orient Express experience tailor-made alongside hospitality partner Arsenale and with the support of Trenitalia Gruppo Ferrovie dello Stato and Fondazione FS e Treni Turistici Italiani.
