Luxury rail cruises with the Dolce Vita train

2 min read


Italy is betting on a new model of railway tourism: the luxury cruise by rail with train Dolce Vita Orient Express. Starring a fleet of six historic trains, currently being manufactured in the railway workshops of Brindisi (main hub) and Palermo. The project was born on the initiative of Arsenale and Orient Express, companies active in the luxury hospitality segment. Arsenale, based in Rome, is controlled by the Barletta family (71.91%), owned by the American Oaktree fund (16.11%) and by Nicola Bulgari’s Annabel Holding (11.98%).

The project

The main objective of Arsenale, underlines the CEO Paolo Barletta, is the valorization of the national tourism sector. The entire project is in collaboration with Trenitalia, the leading company of the passenger hub of the FS Group, the FS Foundation and Italian tourist trains, all Ferrovie dello Stato companies.

The trains will travel to discover the beauties of Italy on dedicated routes from 1 to 3 nightswith a maximum number of 62 passengers by convoy.

These are railway vehicles entirely made in Italy, with Italian design, materials and designers, 5-star luxury services, inspired by the Dolce Vita of the 1960s. A vintage train which, even before making its debut on the national railway network, is already enjoying a strong interest abroad: Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan and Egypt (the latter last Sunday) have already signed agreements with Arsenale to ensure the supply of trains similar to those which, in about a year, will circulate along some of the most spectacular routes and iconic of our country.
