I have never been to California (connecting flights at the airport does not count) so I'd love to wander around San Francisco and ride a cable car. Union Square would be my top destination for art, theater and all of the shops and a Vertigo tour of San Francisco would be fun. Vertigo is probably one of my all time favorite Hitchcock movies and was filmed here!
Years ago, we had plans for a long weekend with friends in Napa. I don't remember why, but something came up and we couldn't go. Life got in the way and we still haven't made it there. Discovering new wines and eating great food is my idea of the perfect weekend. Sideways, Bottle Shock and the original Parent Trap were all filmed in Napa. Both a Sideways wine tour and a Bottle Behind the Scenes tour are offered so you can visit the settings and sample the wine as you go along.
Our daughter was lucky enough to travel to Paris this summer with my Mom. Of course, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe are at the top of my list, but spending a few days on the French Riviera would be amazing too. The coastline is beautiful and the seaside resorts look so quaint. Another film favorite, To Catch a Thief, was shot here too!
Where do I even start? Sample wine in the vineyards of Tuscany, see Leonardo d Vinci's Last Supper and attend an opera in Milan. Take in more art at the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia museums in Florence. See the amazing fresco's in the Padua Scrovegni Chapel, take a boat tour around Lago di Como. Visit the Colosseum and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel in Rome...you get the idea, lot's to see and do! Two more of my favorite movies were shot in Italy; Life is Beautiful, filmed in Arezzo and A Room with a View, filmed in Florence.
