A room with a view

A room with a view

Open window to TravelGreece Having a sunny day on Sunday was so nice, I  felt the urge to stand under the lit up window to take it all in, the warmth, the heat, the energy it just felt so beautiful! A room with a view could just be a room with a large south facing the window. I love this expression, don't you? I fell in love with the book by E.M Forster and the movie adapted by James Ivory, A room with a view, Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Lucy Honeychurch was cast as the perfect English and sweet Rose. Watching the movie from the other side of the Channel was the epitome of pure exotism that Victorian England could represent for a Gallic mind. I went to Florence for the first time in the late 80's, and everything about the place and the city exuded novelty and going on an adventure with school friends without a parent in tow. We very soon raised a keen interest among the Italian male gender and were followed straight out the station. We stayed in a beautiful place decorated with stucco and Renaissance fresco just opposite Santa Maria Della Croce Church you name it,  in a convent. The dormitory was large with high ceilings and marble floors. We were free to wander during the day but had to be back at 9 pm sharp, a good way to keep young girls from going overboard. I like nothing more when I stay at a new place or hotel just having a peep through the window and inspect the area creating a new story out of the new environment in mind and browse the city lying in the near. Like I did when in Istanbul last winter, watching the ferries going over to the Asian side. The most beautiful view I have ever experienced from a hotel room was in Sorrento with French windows opening to  a small balcony over the sea in the Bay of Napoli and the Amalfi Coast Do you have any places to recommend for rooms with an inspiring view?
