Monday Movie Meme- Travel

This week’s movie topic is all about Movies That Make You Want To Travel…
(Visit The Bumbles for more travel choices)
  
So this week it’s all about movies that make us want to travel.  I loved our trip to Italy (as I’ve mentioned a lot lately) and there are a few movies that take me back and make me want to fly back immediately.  Summertime (1955) is a great movie to see the magic of the city.  Loved it.  Casanova (2005) is a so-so movie but I loved seeing the city in its glory days.  Both Only You (1994) and The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) both gave screen time to the canal city.  Under the Tuscan Sun (2003) and Roman Holiday (1953) are favorites that highlight the other two places we visited.How about these pictures from our time in Venice to get you in the mood?
 
I want to visit England someday.  Maybe it’s the Jane Austen movies like Pride & Prejudice (miniseries and 2005 movie) or Mansfield Park (1999) that first piqued my interest.  And the period movies like Miss Potter (2006) and Sherlock Holmes (2009) were fun.  I also like the more standard fare like Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994) Bridget Jones’s Diary(2001) , and Notting Hill (1999). 
 
Do you have a favorite movie that makes you want to travel?
