You've seen the movie, now walk in the footsteps of Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States. Stay in Richmond, the Confederate city visited by Lincoln a day after Union forces captured it and the location for the movie itself then visit Washington DC and the Lincoln Memorial among other fantastic locations and take in the vibrant colours of the Fall.

Rome has been made famous by many movies from the 1959 star of the silver screen that was Ben Hur to more recent favourites including The Talented Mr Ripley, Angels and Demons and Eat Pray Love.

Many a movie has filmed scenes in the stunning surrounds of Switzerland – Goldfinger and Sherlock Holmes, A Game of Shadows headed to Lucerne, Goldeneye for Hittnau, Band of Brothers and The Golden Compass filmed in Bern and On Her Majesty's Secret Service filmed in the Bernese Alps, Grindelwald, Interlaken, Jungfrau and the Jura mountains.

If it is good enough for the stars of Hollywood then we are delighted to offer you the chance to discover a wonderful corner of this fantastic country.
