Ischia, Italy

As seen in: The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

Doomed playboy Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law), his naïve fiancé Marge Sherwood (Gwyneth Paltrow) and compulsive liar Tom Ripley (Matt Damon) refer to their breathtaking Italian island setting as “Mongibello,” but principal shooting took place in Ischia. The southern Italian island in the Bay of Naples has volcanic thermal spas, rocky cliffs, beautiful beaches and ancient ruins. Tourists can visit Castello Argonese, the omnipresent fortress looming over the island, and sunbathe at Bagno Antonio, a private beach club, for a small admission fee.
