Stay on the set of the Book Club Movie

Don’t know about you, but I just love a good movie with a spectacular backdrop and a fun storyline…

  • The film stars an excellent cast: Diane Keaton as Diane ; Jane Fonda as Vivian ; Candice Bergen as Sharon, and Mary Steenburgen as Carol.  Perfectly complimented by Andy Garcia as Mitchell ;  Don Johnson as Arthur, and Craig T Nelson as Bruce.
  • The setting:  Italy (Rome, Tuscany and Venice) – can you get any better than this?
  • Sights:  In the film they include amongst other, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, and the Piazza della Rotonda.

If you haven't seen the movie

“Book Club: The Next Chapter” is an enjoyable film that follows a group of friends as they embark on new adventures.

With a mix of humor, romance, and relatable characters, it offers a delightful experience for those who appreciate friendship and the joy of exploring life’s surprises.

While they travel through Italy, we as the viewers also get the chance to see some pretty cool places.  Maybe some of them are on your travel bucket list?

The San Francisco Chronicle wrote, “Through these women, we have the vicarious experience, not only of the sights of Italy but the psychological experience of being in a place that suddenly lends an air of enchantment to every interaction.”

Venice… a city for romance, but also a city for friendships and fun.

According to Screen Rant:   “The inside of the Grand Plaza Hotel in Rome was used for the inside of the Venice hotel the characters stayed at.

Meanwhile, the Hotel Danieli in Venice was used for the exterior shots.”

Fun, laughter, good friends, good food, romance, and beautiful places…What better excuse is there to take a hen party excursion to Italy?  (Apart from the gorgeous Italian policemen… LOL)  Let’s face it, this is what many of us are only dreaming of.  But if you can go to Italy, don’t wait.  Book that holiday.  Make it happen.  It’s a dream destination.  It is worth going.  And it is waiting for you.
