Episode Summary

Orient Express
This 13-part series offers a fascinating look at international train travel. Not only do we get a close-up look at the type of train used and the accommodations offered, but we are able to observe points of interest and various landscapes along the route until we reach our final destination. This segment covers the Orient Express. For almost a century this extremely luxurious train was the favorite means of transport of the wealthy who traveled through Europe. The train goes from London to Venice and was restored to its former glory a few years ago. Traveling in the luxurious carriages of times past, we pass by beautiful cities and magnificent landscapes. The literal high point is an excursion to Europe's highest station, halfway up the Jungfrau mountain.moreless
