Blockbuster film location sites have become 'must see' destinations for the touring traveller. The silver screen has inspired people to visit cities, islands and places of historical interest around the world since movies began.
Rail tour specialist Ffestiniog Travel believes Sicily looks set to be the next cinema-draw destination in 2023 – not because of its famed 'The Godfather' links, but this time thanks to Indian Jones!
The Italian island plays host to the fifth instalment of the Indian Jones franchise - Dial of Destiny - which opens in cinemas at the end of June. The historic city of Siracusa with its Greek, Roman and Baroque heritage is a perfect backdrop for Harrison Ford's famous archaeologist.
The beautiful city is included in Ffestiniog Travel's Southern Italy & Sicily escorted rail tour which combines train journeys that travel through forested mountains, across unspoilt countryside and along sparkling coastlines with visits to historic landmarks and volcanoes.
