DAY 2
Day at Leisure and Gourmet Tasting menu at Michelin Starred Metropole restaurant

Day at leisure to explore Venice using your Venice Pass Card. This beat the queues card provides free access to both the Doge’s Palace with prison and St Mark’s Basilica.

Enjoy visiting the famous tapestries in the map room showing the rule of the Venetian Empire, along with the portraits of previous Doges in the palace.

Then head to St Mark’s Basilica to see Venice’s East meets West eclectic style Venetian-Turkish design building. It is worth paying the €3 each to be allowed access to the roof, just to be able to enjoy the views over St Mark’s Square.

Also pay special note to the horse statues both within and outside the top floor and roof. The ones inside are the originals taken from Constantinople in one of the many battles. These were taken by Napoleon when he invaded Venice but were returned after he departed. Those on the roof are copies but after Napoleon, the decision was made to hide the originals!

This evening tantalise your taste buds with the Gourmet tasting menu in the Michelin starred Met restaurant at the Metropole.

The atmosphere is intimate and sophisticated, the service attentive and discreet. Generous windows offer a scenic view of the island of San Giorgio, while wood panelling, elegantly designed Fortuny lamps, damask cushions create a stylish and intriguing decor in perfect harmony with the creative cuisine of the chef.

Testimonials

Had to drop you a line and say what a wonderful time we had on the Orient Express and in Venice and Vienna. Our treatment in both cases was superb with a lot of very nice touches which made it very memorable. It was a superb trip and both the train and the Hotels and Cities exceeded expectations. Thank you again.

Christopher

We had a great trip. The highpoints were the Orient Express and the tasting dinner at the Metropole in Venice – the latter was a unique combination of theatre and taste. Thanks for your itinerary, it was the holiday of a lifetime.
