House of Gucci filming locations to inspire your next trip

Jan 04, 2022 by Kara Kramer

Opulence meets crime drama in the true saga of the House of Gucci (yes, that Gucci). Lady Gaga shines in the leading role as Patrizia Reggiani, touting vintage Gucci and an impressive Italian accent. The soap-opera-worthy Gucci family tell-all whisks us from the couture streets of Milan to the villas on Lake Como. Want to know where this blockbuster movie was filmed? Discover the House of Gucci movie locations, then visit them for yourself on our tours of Italy.

Villa Balbiano, Lake Como

Newlyweds Patrizia and Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver) head to uncle Aldo’s (Al Pacino) villa for an afternoon soirée with sparkling Lake Como in the background. But the honeymoon bliss won’t last long as cracks in the family start to show.

Relax like a Gucci on our Lake Como, the Italian Riviera & Venice tour. You can take in sweeping views of Italy’s most beautiful estates on a boat cruise excursion on Lake Como. Plus, during an included visit to the beautiful 17th century Villa Carlotta, you’ll walk the garden grounds while soaking in the spectacular views. Villa Balbiano is only 2.5 miles south of Villa Carlotta. While it’s mainly used as a private wedding venue, you may be able to sneak a peek at this House of Gucci filming location during the boat ride excursion.

Santa Maria in Portico, Rome

Romance (and drama) begin with the wedding of Maurizio and Patrizia in the Santa Maria in Portico church in Rome. This House of Gucci movie location is the lavish backdrop for their 1972 nuptials. Located just across the Tiber River from the trendy Trastevere neighborhood, explore the Santa Maria in Portico church for yourself on a free day in the Eternal City on our A Week in Italy: Venice, Florence & Rome tour.

Quadrilatero della Moda, Milan

Recognized internationally as one of the world’s most important fashion capitals, this House of Gucci movie location is one of the most well-known shopping areas in Milan. The Quadrilatero della Moda is a luxury shopping district that rivals Fifth Avenue in New York and Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris.

Its streets are also home to Milan Fashion Week, the most prestigious fashion event of the year. Want to see the current designs of the fashion house that inspired the movie? Pop into the Gucci store located on the corner of Via Monte Napoleone and Via Pietro Verri.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Milan

One of the most fashionable cities in the world boasts one of the most couture shopping districts in the world. Maurizio Gucci’s office was in Milan, where he lived and worked. On screen, we see the Gucci’s stroll through this notable galleria, which is touted for its gorgeous architecture.

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is Italy’s oldest shopping gallery and is named after the first king of the Kingdom of Italy. Walk through the galleria on a guided tour of Italy’s fashion capital on our Journey through Italy: Milan to the Amalfi Coast tour.

St. Moritz, Switzerland

As Maurizio and Patrizia’s relationship grows colder, so does the temperature in this House of Gucci movie location. The snow falls and the fireplaces roar in the ski châteaus of Switzerland as the drama heats up in the House of Gucci when Maurizio sets his eyes on another woman in St. Moritz.

This prestigious Swiss resort town draws jetsetters and is a hub of wintertime sports. Board the glamorous Bernina Express for a scenic train ride through the stunning, UNESCO-recognized landscapes of the Alps to St. Moritz on our Jewels of Alpine Europe tour and feel like you’re part of the royal fashion family.
