The Magical Old Town of Budva in Montenegro

The old town of Budva Budva, a resort in Montenegro occupies a promontory that juts out into the Adriatic Sea. Settled since Roman times it has a fascinating history. As it was important for trade along the surrounding coastline during the middle ages it built a horse-shoe shaped walls to defend itself from invasions from the sea. It has been under the rule of the Byzantines, the Venetians and the Austro-Hungarians. However, its walls proved no defence to a terrible earthquake in 1979. Since then they have been restored. Today they stand as proudly as they did when the Venetians modified the original walls. Inside the walls visitors will find a wealth of historical buildings including the mighty citadel, museums and five beautiful churches gathered around its main square.

Beside the Seaside Italian Style in Viareggio, Tuscany

Viareggio is a resort in Versilia on the Tuscan Riviera came into being simply because it is a lovely place to spend some time. It stretches for three kilometres along a beautiful, natural sandy beach. When bathing in the sea was recognised as being good for the health it developed as an exclusive resort of the wealthy. Grand hotels adorned one side of its wide promenade while elegant bathing establishments offered changing facilities on the beach. When the railway line from Florence was extended to Viareggio in 1890 this made the town accessible to inhabitants of the major towns in Tuscany and it became a popular resort for everyone. In 1916 a disastrous fire destroyed the original promenade and most of its original wooden buildings. By 1936 most of these buildings had been replaced and the town has a wealth of beautiful Art Nouveau architecture. The colourful umbrellas of nearly one hundred bathing establishments brighten up this interesting town that features several museums including the unusual Museum of the Carnival

Tales and Trails of Tewkesbury  

Sited on the confluence of two important English rivers, the Avon and the Severn Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire was an important and prosperous river port during the twelfth century. As the proximity of water to the town restricted outward growth it expanded upwards and these unusually shaped Tudor buildings can still be seen in the town’s historic streets. Desperate for more living space the narrow alleyways that gave access to the rivers were also developed and people lived there in dark, cramped conditions. Today these alleyways have become desirable residences and an unusual tourist attraction. This attractive town also has an Abbey that was purchased by the residents when it was in danger of being destroyed and is now a splendid parish church. Where commercial boats once plied their trade and mills ground corn and spun cloth visitors can now enjoy tranquil riverside walks.

Woodstock and Blenheim Palace  

The origins of the historic town of Woodstock in Oxfordshire are uncertain. Was it by Henry II in 1279 by to provide housing for his retinue of servants during his frequent visits to his royal hunting lodge at Woodstock Manor (now the site of Blenheim Palace.) Or maybe, as some claim, its purpose to provide a home for his mistress Rosamund Clifford a safe distance from his court in London. At the beginning of the eighteenth century the town when the magnificent Blenheim Palace was being built Woodstock provided homes for the large workforce. The palace is still the main attraction here but visitors should spare some time to stroll through this historic market town and learn about the old Fire Marks that are still evident on some of its old buildings.
