In ‘Roman Holiday’, the audience are treated to a tour of 1950s Rome during Hepburn and Peck’s characters’ whirlwind romance. Filming took place across the city, however one particular iconic setting is the Bocca della Verita (Mouth of Truth) – a carved stone face that is said to bite the heads off liars. In this scene, Peck puts his hand inside the statue and fools Hepburn into thinking his hand has been bitten off. The church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin was the setting of this famous scene.
‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Hepburn’s most famous film, was set in the stunning city of New York. This film was centred around Hepburn’s character, Holly Golightly, who was a huge fan of the Tiffany’s jewellery store on Fifth Avenue. The outside of Holly’s apartment can be seen at 196 East 71st Street on New York’s East Side. The bright lights of New York makes an ideal holiday destination for tourists who love fast-paced, shopping and sightseeing holidays.
Hepburn’s film, ‘Paris When it Sizzles’ gives you a craving for all things French. In this film, Hepburn and her co-star, William Holden, play characters who write a film, entitled ‘The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower’. The Etoile Trocadero Hotel is an ideal hotel to stay in during your visit to Paris, as it’s only a short walk from the Eiffel Tower.
