5 Famous Film Locations to Visit!

1.Ouarzazate, Morocco


Visit amazing Ouarzazate in Morocco which boasts the setting for a number of famous movies which include ‘Cleopatra’, ‘Lawrence of Arabia’,  and ‘Gladiator’!

2.Salzburg, Austria

Delight in the stunning lakes and mountains that surround Salzburg in Austria, not forgetting that it was the location for one of the most famous movies in the world – ‘The Sound of Music’.

3.Rome, Italy

Something to really take your breath away would be a visit to Rome, one of the most beautiful and historical cities to behold. Rome has been the setting for many films such as ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley and ‘The Belly of an Architect’, but it is the exquisite ‘Roman Holiday’ starring the film star legends Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck that really brings the city to life!


4.Provence. France

The beautiful region of Provence is a stunningly picturesque province of southeastern France and was the wonderful backdrop for the romantic film ‘A Good Year’ starring Marion Cottillard and Russell Crowe.

5.Venice, Italy


Last but not least is the glorious city of Venice which is situated in northeastern Italy. This unique and beautiful city has been a favourite setting for not one, but three Bond movies over the years. Bond is seen in Venice at the end of ‘From Russia with Love’ (1963); he is seen riding a gondola in Venice in ‘Moonraker’ (1979); and Venice is again the backdrop for the climactic scenes in the more recent ‘Casino Royale’ (2006).
