Lake Garda in Italy tipped as early Bond 22 shooting location

29-Oct-2007 • Quantum Of Solace

According to press reports, Lake Garda in Italy is likely to be a shooting location for the 22nd James Bond film.

Known locally as "Lago di Garga", the lake in the north of the country is said to be under consideration for scenes early in the film.

Writer Paul Haggis has stated previously that Daniel Craig's second outing as 007 will take off "two minutes" after Casino Royale, which finished at a house on a lake in Italy...

Locals have tipped the Grand Hotel Gardone and Locanda Punta San Vigilio Hotel as possible attractions for the location scouts.

Italy seems to be a hot favourite for several scenes in Bond 22, including the Stelvio Pass in the Italian Alps, the Basilicata region in the south, and the Palio di Siena horse race (of which background shots have already been filmed).
