Films shot in Tuscany

Our best off

Here is the best guide to film locations shot in Tuscany, because traveling in itself is nice, but with a purpose it is even better and, in this case, the purpose is the best locations used by cinema since its dawn: even the Lumière brothers , on the other hand, came here to shoot the first steps of modern cinema.

Our region looks good on screen, but even better in real life, don't you think?

With its rolling green hills, coastlines, islands, medieval villages perched on hills, cities with an important past, it's no wonder that filmmakers choose wonderful Tuscany as their film set...
