Today's fun question of the day is about the "Sound of Music".
A few of us posting on this site are planning a trip that includes Salzburg. Lately I've been reading numerous postings in other question pages regarding the "Sound of Music". The question pages weren't specifically asking about SOM info and were more general Salzburg info related, but many of the posts touched on it. I thought maybe it was time to focus on it specifically.
I read that there seems to be alot of differing opinions on things like where certain shots were taken in the movie, parts of the set that have been moved, etc.... I've also searched online and found much discussion on some of the tours offered in Slazburg that may be less than genuine and offer bad information.
So why is there seeming to be alot of conflicting thoughts and opinions? What might one do to filter fact from fiction? What would be the best way to see SOM sights and know you're getting the most accurate info?
My wife and I are booked to stay at the Villa Trapp (the actual former residence) and while expensive, it's just something we wanted to do. I'm thinking that because of their unique connection to the whole thing, they'd know the best way to see the "Sound of Music" interests.
They are pointing visitors to use a tour called "Bob's" (http://www.bobstours.com/). I'm thinking that didn't sound very authentic, but they insist it's the best.
So what's up with the "Sound of Music"??
