Summertime: Travel to Venice With Katharine Hepburn

Summertime: Travel to Venice With Katharine Hepburn

Yes, I did! I went to Venice this weekend. I travelled with both Katharine Hepburn and Rossano Brazzi.  They were great travelling companions although Hepburn's character was a bit frustrating at times...

Hepburn played a character named 'Jane.' Jane was a spinster who travelled alone to Venice, Italy and planned on seeing all the sights. Well tour she did, she was a great tourist and she did a great job of introducing us to Venice.

But boy was she LONELY.  I was so frustrated with her!  Until, that is she allowed herself to get to know an Italian gentleman and fall in love.  Well, if the truth be told, I was frustrated with her AGAIN after that but I won't spoil the story by telling you why.

If you want to travel to Venice from the comfort of your armchair, I can recommend Summertime, a classic Katharine Hepburn movie.  It's not exciting, nor is it an action-packed movie. It is quite simply a love story that will help you travel to Italy so pop the corn, pour the cold drinks and settle in for the journey...

See you
at the movies!

thank you very much for your comment on my blog post! I felt the same way about Katharine Hepburn's character.. at times, she was really a loner in Venice. the times she would break down and cry- i felt so sorry for her. Interesting fact - I read in her biography that during the filming of Summertime, she actually got an eye infection during one of the scenes in the movie - that time she fell in the dirty water canal. random tidbit, but you probably know that already =)

thank you for the recommendation for The Good Old Summertime with Judy Garland! I will have to add that to my movie list to watch this summer!
