Many tourists visit Italy to live out their Hollywood fantasy of romance. Now, you can truly walk in the footsteps of two of Hollywood’s most passionate characters — Elio and Oliver, of “Call Me by Your Name.” Quiiky Tours, an Italian company that specializes in LGBT-themed travel, is making your dream a reality by announcing a new guided tour of Italy, inspired by the 2017 Oscar-winning drama.
“Call Me by Your Name” centers around two young men — a 17-year-old Elio, and 24-year-old Oliver, a grad student — and their burgeoning relationship in Italy, featuring locations like Milan, Crea, Garda Lake, Verona, Venice, and Bergamo. Fans of the film will be taken through all of these locations, spending eight days following in the footsteps of their favorite characters.
Prices for the tour start at $2,500 per person and includes accommodations, car rentals for the driving portion of the trip, and guided tours of Milan, Crema, Verona, and Venice. Some of the trip’s main highlights include a visit to Duomo Square in Crema — one of the film’s main settings, where guests can sit at the same bar table Elio and Oliver shared — bike tours through Crema di Lodi, and an excursion to Bergamo.
