Seeing the sun soaked scenery of Call Me By Your Name or the picturesque cobbled streets of The Danish Girl it is hard not to get the sudden urge to pack your bags and hop on a jet. To celebrate these cinematic masterpieces and their beautiful settings, Elite Traveler takes you on a globetrotting adventure to our favorite movie locations and the most luxurious hotels to stay in nearby.
Call Me By Your Name – Lombardy, Italy
We begin our journey with a summer jaunt in the north Italian region of Lombardy. The Oscar nominated romantic drama, Call Me By Your Name, gives a dreamy, languid depiction of the region making it the perfect place for a romantic and relaxing summer stay. The film is mostly set in a rustic Italian villa in the quaint town of Moscazzano.
The scenic Lake Garda, where Elio’s father is seen recovering bronze statues, is an hour’s drive away. Olive and lemon groves line its southern shores whilst its narrow northern tip is surrounded by mountains.
Once you’ve had enough of exploring the surrounding Italian countryside, the cities of Crema and Milan, are situated a stones throw away and offer plenty of options for shopping and fine dining.
Where to stay: L’Alberta was converted from a Renaissance country house into an exclusive five star hotel and is situated in the heart of the Lombardy countryside. The hotel is surrounded by verdant vineyards whilst the romantic Cabriolet suite has a retractable roof so you can sleep under the stars.
