films to set the tone for upcoming trip!

Jump to last reply

When I visited London, Paris, Rome for the first time in 2007, a friend recommended some old films that really spoke to the "mood" and "scene" of those marvelous cities. Watching the films not only taught me a little about the culture of those places, but also helped revv me up for the travels!

I'm hoping you might have recommendation(s) for films that showcase the culture, beauty etc of Ireland, Scotland, Amsterdam and Germany.

It's casting a wide net, but I'm not picky... I would love to hear what you think!

To give you an idea, before my last Europe trip, I watched Roman Holiday, Charade, and La Dolce Vita to name a couple. I loved them, had never seen them before, and felt totally swept away by what I was about to experience.

Thank you! Happy trails!
