|Subject: Re: Do Films Inspire Your Travels?|
Margaret talked about films and travel. Venice is one of those places that is magical in both movies and books. I just finished reading "Miss Garnet's Angel" by Salley Vickers and it gives you a great feel for Venice - I wanted to wander the alleys. It made me remember when my family added Venice to our "big" European train journey 10 years ago. I was worried because I didn't think that Venice would measure up to the mystery of "Death in Venice" or the romantic sunlit Venice of Summertime with Katherine Hepburn. But it did! I thoroughly enjoyed Venice.
For books about London, Florence and Venice see http://www.fictionalcities.co.uk/
Although I have not seen it, evidently Venice plays a starring role in the new film Casenova.
Have you any suggestions for cities that are captured by books or film? Were you disappointed when you saw the real thing?
