Cineturismo is the tourism linked to the world of cinema providing guided tours throughout the many Italian sites that served as the set of many iconic movies. This concept could immediately bring to memory the image of a splendid Anita Ekberg who, immersed in the Trevi Fountain at night, gracefully invites Marcello Mastroianni to join her in such spectacular setting. One of the most famous film scenes of all times is the 1960-movie La Dolce Vita by Federico Fellini. Since then, the Trevi Fountain has drawn millions of tourists to this magical site. This is one more reason to visit it. “Cinema tourism” is a rather recent term that aims to develop a tourism connected to places of Italy that became famous due to cinematography.
A niche market that also includes a visit to the many film and television locations used for filming movies and TV series, respectively. This interest has always existed, but has only recently been framed in this concept of ‘cineturismo’. Italy I Love You offers personalized tours and visits among the most iconic sites of Italian cinema: a way to deeply link art and culture, and to connect to the country’s architectural and cultural heritage.

Furthermore, the international set for The Passion by Mel Gibson, as well as the splendid places of the immortalized Capital in the film La Grande Bellezza.
