Orient Express La Minerva, Rome 

Considered as the beloved capital of the Orient Express legend, Rome will be home to the first Orient Express hotel, Minerva, in 2024. Orient Express, in partnership with the Italian luxury hotel group Arsenale S.p.A, has entrusted the interior architecture and artistic direction of the hotel Hugo Toro. The former Palazzo Fonseca is a sumptuous 17th-century palace with a huge, majestic façade. A place of memory still adorned with its Roman columns, sculptures by Rinaldi Rinaldo, a disciple of Casanova, and the fascinating goddess Minerva. At the end of 2024, a new décor and interior inspired by the Roman domus and the riches of the "Eternal City" will be revealed with a new touch of contemporary elegance. 

Orient Express Palazzo Donà Giovannelli, Venice 

Architect and interior designer Aline Asmar from Amman and her studio Culture in Architecture has been chosen to enhance the decor of the former Palazzo Donà Giovannelli. Located just ten minutes from Venice's Santa Lucia train station, close to the Cannaregio shopping district and rooted in the origins of the Doge's City, the Venetian palace is a treasure trove built in 1400 by the architect Filippo Calendario, who famously designed the Doge's Palace. Formerly the residence of the Duke of Urbino, a patron of the arts, it has been renovated twice by the architect Gian Battista Meduna. The hotel will offer 45 rooms and suites, all overlooking the gardens and canals of Venice.
