    Thank you Julia for taking the time to share your trip. I am enjoying the pictures. Would you be kind enough to share which hotel you used in the Cinque Terre area? I see a hotel name in one of your pictures but can't make out the name. I am planning a trip there next year. That area seems to be hard to find a hotel that I can stay for only one night. Thank you.

    bogriffinrides, Yes, you're right, that photo is just next to our hotel.

    Albergo Margherita‎
    Via Roma, 72
    19016 Monterosso al Mare La Spezia, Italia
    0187 818535
    hotelmonterosso.it‎

    We stayed there for one night, but then decided to stay for one more. The hotel is not the cheapest, but in all Cinque Terre all is not cheap. Double rooms cost 160-170 euros per night (can not remember exactly), but if you pay cash - 150 euros per night. And do not forget about the problem with parking! Good luck.

    Thank you very kindly. (I'm not sure what we'll do about the parking, but we'll see.)

    Bugging you again.
    Ok, I find Tremosine on the map (I've got to do this one now that I've seen your video), but I'm not sure which road is the James Bond road? And, did y'all stay overnight in Tremosine? (any recomendations on a hotel?)

    Most of the film sequences were taken on the SR 45b "Gardesana Occidentale" that runs from Riva del Garda to Gardone Riviera .

    Yes, Giorgio wrote correctly, first you go on the road SR 45b, and then watch not mistaken, in front of tunnel turn to the left and ride along the road, which in our video. Upstairs a lot of hotels, we stayed here:

    Hotel Lucia Di Pace Anna Elisa & C. (S.A.S.) - Terrazza Vista Lago
    Via del Sole, 2
    25 010 Tremosine Brescia, Italia
    0365 953088
    hotellucia.it

    Something around 80 euros per night.

    Here on the map the final point B - is a hotel.
