Wonderful! My 57 year old father and I were both fascinated by every minute. This is a course that's not to be missed, even if you might never have a chance to visit these places. These 12 cities, spanning a wide range of medieval experience, are brought to life by a very talented professor. Professor Bartlett always know the history and the buildings, and can link the two in a way that gives insight and memorability. He has obviously been to every place he speaks of, and knows what can't be missed. The cities are very well chosen, some well known and some not so, ranging from the north of England to Malta to Poland, each with a story to tell and each with its own beauty. Highlights are Dubrovnik, York, and Siena – the Gothic dream. A wealth of very good photos and videos add another dimension. Often you feel that you're actually walking the narrow streets. The only complaint is that at times too many photos are shown at once, and they can't all be enjoyed.
