Lacock was used to film the town of Meryton in BBC’c Pride & Prejudice. It has also been used as Cranford, in the series with … Continue reading

Florence – part 6 – Pisa

Tweet This really shouldn’t go under the title Florence I suppose, but it fits better in with the rest that way. 😉 As I was flying both to and from Pisa this time I thought it would be fun to actually go into the city and have look at the famous building they have there; the leaning tower of Pisa. When I arrived in Italy it was evening and I had no time for any sightseeing. That is why I decided to leave Florence slightly earlier in the day, so I would have some time to look around. I was … Continue reading
