The last installment of Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 3 has arrived with a bang! Spider-Man: Far From Home marks the end of an era started in 2008 with the first Iron Man film, but also offer a sneak peek to the future of the biggest movie franchise of all time.
In this edition, Peter Parker, still dealing with the loss of his mentor and father figure Tony Stark after the events of Avengers: Endgame, went on a summer trip to Europe with his classmates, and we absolutely can't wait to take a deeper look into these amazing cities! Let's travel with Your Friendly Neighborhood hero to these amazing locations, far from home! Spoiler Alert in case you haven't watch the movie yet!
Peter & co.'s first stop of this trip was at Venice, Italy. The floating city also became his first meeting spot with the deviously charming Quentin Beck (played by the equally dashing Jake Gyllenhaal) a.k.a Mysterio, and his new adventure began.
Gondolas, canals, and historic architectures, Venice offers one of the most unique holiday experience for travelers from every where. Visit the many museums, take great photos in St. Mark's Square and St. Mark Basilica at the heart of the city, take great photos at Ponte di Rialto which is Venice's most famous bridge above the canals, visit Doge's Palace, and of course ride the gondola with your loved ones. Don't worry, Hydroman won't attack you.
Although the next destination of the trip was supposed to be Paris (Peter had a big plan about his relationship with MJ to be executed in the Effiel Tower), the trip was unsuspectedly redirected to Prague. Serving as the setting for a large chunk of the movie, Prague is the real highlight of Spider-Man Far From Home. From the opera house, the battle scene at the Prague Carnival, and the romantic evening walk between Peter and MJ on the Charles Bridge, the movie successfuly captured the beauty of the Czech Republic capital at nighttime.
The Czech capital is an extremely romantic place to be, whatever the season be, and literally almost every corner of the city is insta-worthy. The aforementioned Charles Bridge is always a good place to take great photos, but also visit the 9th century Prague Castle, the Astronomical Clock–a 600 year old mechanical clock face, and classic St. Vitus Cathedral.
After a big revelation in Prague, our heroes make their final stand in London. The city was highlighted beautifully during the final battle, albeit only highlighting the surrounding area of Tower Hill such as the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, and The Shard. The Tower Bridge itself became the stage for the final battle of the movie, and also the romantic moment Peter shared with MJ.
Immersed deeply in history and known as the Romans' first home, London has a diversed option for touristic hotspots, such as the London Eye, the House of Parliament and Big Ben, and the Buckingham Palace. The city that is popularly associated with the red double decker busses and iconic telephone booths, will satisfy your every needs.
It won't be a Spider-Man movie without Spidey's hometown: New York City. The Big Apple only appear at the start and–more-so–at the end of the movie, serving as the backdrop of Peter's new-found belief in himself, his date with MJ, and THAT shocking mid-credits scene!
New York always offers an unmistakable mega-city vibe. Take great photos at the famed 5th Avenue, Times Square with its iconic Flatiron Building, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, among many other great city locations. After looking at your photos in the majestic cityscape of New York City, you'd realise one truth: Who says that great photos can only be taken in a naturally beautiful location?
Okay, this last section is going to be spoiler-heavy, so read at your own risk. Although the movie predominantly took place in Venice, Prague, London, and New York City, Spider-Man did take a quick detour nearing the end of the movie to Berlin, Germany. After a brief scuffle with Mysterio, Peter Parker found himself in a jail call with a group of super-nice and polite Dutch football hooligans in the Netherlands, so nice and polite that after Peter broke himself out of the jail, they calmly re-closed the door of their cell and stayed inside.
Long story short, Happy Hogan picked Peter up, flying the Stark jet above a beautiful tulip field. We couldn't help but guessed that the tulip field is none other than the beautiful flower strips of Keukenhof in Lisse, Netherlands. Both Berlin and Lisse are two extremely beautiful cities in Europe with so many hidden gems to explore, and of course also an abundance of wonderful, photo-worthy spots!
