Topic: In Italy and Greece this Summer - 007 Shooting Locations?

I'm going to be in Europe this July/August for my wedding anniversary (20 years!).  This trip is going to cover Italy and the Greek Isles, and I'd be curious if anyone could point me to any specific spots in the following cities where any Bond films were shot:

Rome
Florence (and surrounding area)
Venice (I know MR and CR were shot here)
Santorini
Rhodes
Mykonos
Athens

Thanks!

Wow, that's a great site! Off topic but very noticeable gaps in Africa and Oceania—would definitely love to see filming there for future films.

Unfortunately you'll be in Italy a few months after the reported B25 filming in Matera—would be a cool thing to see.

They’re definitely shooting in Italy and Jamaica.  And Norway and London of course.  Plus somewhere else I can’t remember the name of  ajb007/insane

You should extend your trip to Cortina in Italy and Korfu in Greece.
Both phantastic locations for FYEO

Not on the itineraries, unfortunately.  We're doing an escorted tour of Italy (Rome, Florence/Tuscany, Venice) followed by a Greek Isle cruise, so the stops ARE what they ARE.

We do have a couple of days to kill in Venice once the tour ends while we wait for the cruise to begin, however.  It looks like Cortina might work for a day trip...

edited to add: I hope to to Germany and Austria in a few years.  It's lower on our list of priorities for the simple fact that my wife has been there before (prior to meeting me).  The next big trip to Europe will probably be England/Scotland/Wales/Ireland.

Re: In Italy and Greece this Summer - 007 Shooting Locations?

Daytrip from Venice to Cortina is doable and well worth it.
Cortina is a magic place

When you are in Mestre ( just before Venice), opposite of the campground there is a little restaurant, my wife is still praising their seafood pasta. And my Pizza was phantastic, too

"Definitely" Jamaica?? Do you know that for sure? Is Cádiz, Spain, that other place? Can you confirm that or is it only speculation?

Factual facts. You can take it to the bank.

Re: In Italy and Greece this Summer - 007 Shooting Locations?

My main suggestion for Venice is to eat at Pasticceria Bar Puppa. I cannot recommend it more.

I've always wanted to have Christmas in Turkey

Noted!  Thank you!
Indeed, I'm totally open for any restaurant recommendations in Rome, Florence, and Venice.  We're on a tour, but we have several lunches and dinners 'on our own', and we have several days to kill in Venice before our cruise.

Re: In Italy and Greece this Summer - 007 Shooting Locations?

Dont forget to get to Murano Island - a short boat trip from St Marks Square in Venice - it’s a beautiful location and where one of the best scenes in Moonraker was filmed  ajb007/martini

Hmm I didn't know that—I wonder what's going to be happening in Jamaica?

Re: In Italy and Greece this Summer - 007 Shooting Locations?

We just got back.  The trip was fantastic, and we got to spend some time bopping around Venice and looking for spots where CASINO ROYALE and INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE were filmed.  We didn't make it to Cortina, unfortunately...we had it planned, but it was going to be thunderstorms that day and we didn't want to waste the entire day driving through sheets of rain.

Re: In Italy and Greece this Summer - 007 Shooting Locations?

We were on the Celebrity Constellation.  It's an older ship and is in need of some work (our cabin was not acceptable...we got a future cruise credit because of its condition).  It was a fun ship, though.  Lots to do, plenty to eat...pretty standard for a cruise.  This was our first cruise with Celebrity and we'll give them another go on a newer ship in the next couple of years.

The itinerary in Greece was awesome and we had a lot of fun on some of the islands, especially Mykonos.  Indeed, I'd love to spend 2 weeks just on Mykonos at some point just to get to enjoy it more, especially in the evening.

Re: In Italy and Greece this Summer - 007 Shooting Locations?

Sorry to hear this. What was wrong with your stateroom?
We have been twice on Solstice and can recommend the Solstice sisters.

We‘ll try Edge in November.

Re: In Italy and Greece this Summer - 007 Shooting Locations?

Edge is supposed to be AWESOME.  Fantastic reviews on it.  A sister ship, the Apex, launches next year, and there will be two more ships in that class coming afterwards.  Have fun!

Our stateroom felt like a Motel 6...very rundown.  Carpeting was coming up in the corners, there were scratches and dings all over the walls, and it looked like someone took a golf club to the ceiling (there were indentations all over the place).  The room needed new paint, there were old cigarette burns in the bathroom sink...you get the idea.  It was very used.  It definitely was not the luxury experience that we were promised, especially at the price we were paying.  Guest relations made the situation right and we're satisfied.

Re: In Italy and Greece this Summer - 007 Shooting Locations?

Ouch, that sounds awful!
I assume that the ship, was sailing full and that they where not able to move you to another cabin.

Anyhow, glad that they partly compensated and I hope that your next cruise will be more enjoyable.

I am glad to hear that you have enjoyed Italy and Greece, Mykonos is wonderful!
Have you made it to Korfu?
Is the Venini shop still there in Venice?
