Top '007' filming locations around the world

Set against dramatic mountain scenery, picturesque Italian coastal roads and vibrant cities, the James Bond franchise has wowed and inspired us to see the world for years. As the latest instalment hits the big screen, we take a look at the Top ‘007’ destinations you could visit to follow in the footsteps of our favourite fictional Secret Service Agent.

Puglia, Italy

In the latest Bond film, No Time To Die, you’ll be rewarded with a chase sequence through the streets of historic Matera. This unique city in the Basilicata region can be visited on a guided holiday to southern Italy and has become famous for its Sassi stone houses that decorate the landscape. These ancient cave dwellings are thought to house some of the earliest settlements in Italy.

Sugarloaf Mountain, Brazil

The magnificent monolith of Sugarloaf Mountain featured in Bond’s 1979 film, Moonraker. It takes two cable car rides and just three minutes to reach to the top and you’ll be rewarded with its sweeping views of Guanabara Bay and the city of Rio de Janeiro. As it dominates the skyline, it’s hard to miss this sight on a tour to Brazil but you should also consider allowing some time to visit, either as part of a group or at leisure.

Las Vegas, USA

In Diamonds are Forever, we see Vegas’ Fremont Street. One of the oldest roads in Vegas, and along with the Strip, one of the most famous streets in the city. On an escorted tour to Western USA, you can enjoy the bright lights of Vegas and enjoy all that the city has to offer - why not visit some of the incredible themed hotels, see the Bellagio fountain display or even try your luck in one of the casinos that helped give Vegas it’s ‘Sin-City’ name.

Schilthorn Mountain

Sugarloaf Mountain, Brazil

Switzerland

Schilthorn Mountain stands at a mighty 9,744 feet and features in George Lazenby’s only outing as Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. On an escorted holiday that takes in the Best of Switzerland, you can visit the panoramic revolving restaurant at the very top of this mountain, it takes 45 minutes to complete a full rotation and you’ll enjoy magnificent views across the Alps.

Rome & Vatican City, Italy

In 2015, Rome was the backdrop in the movie Spectre. On a guided tour of Italy, you will spend time in this stunning city and enjoy an array of incredible experiences - discover picturesque piazza’s hidden in a maze of streets and iconic sights seemingly around every corner. An escorted tour will take you to historic sites and you can explore more with time at leisure too. Step back in time with visit to the Colosseum, marvel at the magnificent domed Pantheon, walk through the Roman Forum, climb the Spanish Steps and toss a coin in to the Trevi Fountain. You can even venture to another filming location – the Vatican City, home to St Peter’s Basilicata, the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel.

Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul features in several Bond movies and it’s not hard to see why. The iconic Hagia Sophia is a stunning building and a wonderful example of Byzantine architecture. It’s huge dome and marble pillars are outstanding and windows above the gallery give the illusion that the dome is floating. Take a guided tour to Turkey, and you’ll see many of the iconic sights Istanbul has to offer visitors in addition to the Hagia Sophia including the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar.

Monaco

Home of the rich and famous, Monaco oozes glitz and glamour and in Goldeneye, you enjoy a glimpse of the Casino de Monte Carlo. On an escorted holiday to the French Riviera, you’ll take a trip to the tiny state and have time to explore the “Billionaires’ Playground” that boasts exclusive restaurants, exquisite gardens, opulent boutiques and a harbour filled with luxurious yachts.
