Call Me By Your Name

The love story between Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer) on screen and, before that, in the book, has undoubtedly warmed the hearts of many - including our own. So much so that there has been a boom in tourism for the towns of Crema and Cremona in recent months. It was here that the film by Luca Guadagnino was made and we're happy to report that there is already a dedicated tour to discover the beauty of these locations. Specializing in LGBTQ-themed trips that everyone can enjoy, Quiiky Tours organizes an itinerary consisting of cycling tours, relaxation in the most beautiful spas and wine tastings. Without forgetting, of course, to stop on the exact spot where the two protagonists danced to the sounds of Love my way.


There is no doubt that the film Chocolat is a classic. What contributes to the magic of this film (other than Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp, of course) is the location in which it was shot: the medieval village of Flavigny-sur-Ozerain, in France. Pay a visit to this village just 60 km from Dijon, and you will be delighted to find Vianne's chocolate shop, the church and the alleys that were so central to the story. However, don't unpack just yet. Not all the film was shot in France, with the gypsy boat scenes and those of Madame Armande's party being shot in England.

Mamma Mia!

As ecstatic as we are that the sequel is coming out this year, we still have an ongoing love affair with the original. Mamma Mia! is a story that entertains, excites, moves and even makes us dance, thanks to the music of ABBA. Meryl Streep sparkled in her role on the lush green island of Skopelos in the Sporades and, since the release of the film, the Greek island has been stormed by fans of the movie and its songs. But, with the scent of Mediterranean plants in the breeze, the white houses, the wonderful sea and the delightful food and wine, this place is a real paradise.

Under The Tuscan Sun

A true hymn to La Dolce Vita, Under The Tuscan Sun led by Diane Lane in 2003, is based on the book of the same name by Frances Mayes. Shot in Cortona, the story primarily features an abandoned villa bought by the protagonist. Villa Bramasole finds its place in the beautiful Tuscan town of Bucolica that seems to be lost in time and is, in itself, absolutely worth visiting.
