Cinecittà Studios Review
Film lovers will want to make the trip out to Cinecittà Studios, stomping ground of Fellini, Audrey Hepburn, and Elizabeth Taylor and home to such classics as Roman Holiday, Cleopatra, and La Dolce Vita. Another draw is the set built for the recent BBC/HBO series Rome, which includes movie versions of ancient homes, temples, and streets. You can take a guided tour of the sets. It also seems likely that the very popular 2011–2012 exhibition Cinecittà Shows Off, with its displays of memorabilia like Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra gown and the dolphin-shaped statue that marked the chariot laps in Ben-Hur, may be made permanent (although this had not been announced at press time). Check www.cinecittastudios.it for more information. Cinecittà is located about 20 minutes southeast on Line B from the Colosseo stop.
