James Bond 007, Lake Garda, "Quantum of Solace"

We had been planning a trip to Malcesine a couple of Wednesday's ago but the road along Lake Garda (named the "Gardesana") was closed as filming had begun for the new James Bond film, "Quantum of Solace". From April 14 to 24, several towns on Lake Garda (Gargnano, Tremosine, Limone sul Garda, Torbole, and Malcesine) were the film sets for the 22nd James Bond movie, "Quantum of Solace", directed by Marc Forster and Dan Bradley.

Unfortunately, some of the breathtaking scenes involving James Bond's famous Aston Martin and high-speed car chases led to spectacular plunge into Lake Garda (youtube: A few days later there was also an accident on the set involving two Alfa Romeos. I've been saying the road can be dangerous....

So, when you go to the movies to see Quantum of Solace keep you eyes peeled for the Lake Garda scenes, the tunnels we share cars with, and the wonderful scenery. And, if you decide to come and ride here make sure you hook up with Eros Poli.
