Discovering Hollywood in Tuscany

tuscany-1341536

The Hollywood in Tuscany tour with Tuscan Trip is a full day excursion to the big screen locations of your favorite films made in Italy. Located in Rome, Cinecittà is the Italian equivalent to Hollywood. Many great movies have been filmed in the studios there and Tuscany is a wonderful backdrop for many on location scenes.

We’ll travel the roads through the rolling green hills of the countryside to view the olive groves, vineyards, and wheat fields captured by the director’s camera and projected on the silver screen. You’ll see the charming towns where the actors encounter their dramas and life in Italy.

Maybe you’ll be like Frances Mayes in “Under the Tuscan Sun” and find a villa (like Casa Bramasole in Cortona) that calls your name in need of restoration and to create a new life. In the Val d’Orcia you’ll see a view from the dream scene in Ridley Scott’s “The Gladiator”. In Montepulciano you can see locations from several films such as “The English Patient, Midsummer Night’s Dream, and The Twilight Saga: The New Moon.” Also, in Siena we’ll visit locations found in “Letters to Juliet”.
