Places related to Audrey Hepburn in Europe!

I got a chance to visit west Europe in a month.

I'm a big fan of Audrey Hepburn.

I could fine two places. first one is 'Fontana di Trevi' in Roman holiday.

the other is the house Audrey was born in Brussels.

would you please tell me some places that Audrey Hepburn related?

Hi Kitsune,

She spent 30 years in the Lake Geneva (Switzerland) region, and her remains are in Tolochenaz, just outside of Morges. Here's more information:

Click on the pdf at the bottom of the page to get a detailed map.

Have fun as you plan!

Much of Rome is a backdrop for "Roman Holiday," not just Trevi. "Love in the Afternoon" was also filmed on location, as well as "Two for the Road" (South of France), "Charade", Paris, and possibly "Funny Face", but no time to check at the moment.

Try www.imdb.com if you haven't already.

In Rome, the apartment in the movie is just down from the Spanish Steps on Via Margutta (#51).

For movies related, look up www.imdb.com, enter "Audrey Hepburn" in the search box to find the films. For each film, go down to the "Details" section about half way down, then "Filming Locations" then "See more>>"

I have to admit, I took a trip on the Seine in a bateau mouche because of seeing the movie "Charade."

However, it saddens me that people line up to see the Bocca dell Verita (Audrey and Gregory Peck in "Roman Holiday")without exploring the wonderful church behind it. Santa Maria in Cosmedin has portions dating to the 8th century and features wonderful Cosmati stonework.
