I'm fortunate enough to live close to London and have always enjoyed its delights, from historical, gastronomical, theatrical and musical. I'm hoping that every month throughout 2017 I will submit a map here on TDAC. It will mostly be of world cities but I may go off at a tangent depending on how I feel !

Florence is such a magnificent city and I've had the pleasure of visiting several times. I have wanted to create a map based on E.M.Forster's novel, and subsequent film adaptation for many years. I have included some of the city's iconic architecture with reference to its role in the novel/ film. I hope to have captured some of Florence's enchantment and romance.

I am a huge Jane Austen fan, although this is possibly my favourite novel by her. Reading it as a impressionable teenager I imagined where in Hertfordshire some of the major events took place - since I really do live in that county! The map contains most of the main locations with brief explanations.
