Can’t afford a trip around Europe this year? No worries pal, watching Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) is the next best thing. With scenes set in Venice, Austria, Prague, Berlin, the Netherlands and London, Peter Parker’s European vacation will satisfy any wanderlust cravings you have. And naturally, the Spider-Man: Far From Home locations are just as beautiful in real life as they are in the film.
Far From Home is the sequel to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and the 23rd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The movie follows Tom Holland’s Peter Parker as he deals with the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame (2019). Seeing it as a chance to escape his responsibilities as Spider-Man in NYC for a while (because with great power, etc.), Peter jumps at the chance of joining a class trip to Europe. Of course, trouble follows Peter wherever he goes. And when Nick Fury calls needing your help, you better bloody answer…
Whilst Peter and his mates hop around several countries in Europe, some liberties have been taken with the Spider-Man locations. And you can’t blame them, really, six countries is a lot for any movie production. So if you’re wondering which Spider-Man scenes were shot where, these are all of the Spider-Man: Far From Home locations in Europe! Plus a map so you can visit them all yourself, too.
Spider-Man: Far From Home Filming Locations in Europe
Spider-Man: Far From Home Locations in Spain
1. Belchite Old Town, Zaragoza, Spain
Spider-Man: Far From Home opens with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Cobie Smulder’s Maria Hill, formerly of S.H.I.E.L.D, investigating a “storm with a face” in Ixtenco, Mexico. The town is left in ruins by a creature called an Elemental which the mysterious Quentin Beck, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, defeats.
Except this scene wasn’t filmed in Mexico, was it? Nah, too easy. It was shot in the desolate, ancient town of Belchite in the Zaragoza province of Spain. The historic, sandy-coloured town was almost entirely destroyed during the Spanish Civil War. Probably why it was chosen as a stand-in. Of course, CGI added embellishments like graffiti and neon signs to drag the town into the 21st century.
Spider-Man: Far From Home Locations in Venice, Italy
2. Marco Polo International Airport, Venice
After we get reacquainted with Peter, Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan, Marisa Tomei’s Aunt May, Peter’s best friend Ned and the rest of the Midtown School of Science and Technology students back in New York City… We’re off to Europe! The first stop on their two-week field trip itinerary is Venice, Italy.
The students arrive into Marco Polo International Airport in Venice, and I have every reason to believe the scene was actually shot there.
3. Grand Canal, Venice
Definitely one of my favourite Spider-Man: Far From Home filming locations: Venice’s Grand Canal! Is there a more iconic Venice site than a gondola sailing through the Grand Canal?! So, it makes sense that this is the first activity Peter and his pals do in Venice. And you can see Basilica di Santa Maria Della Salute in the distance, too.
4. Piazza San Marco, Venice
After checking into their wash-out of a hotel, the chaperones and teenagers venture into Venice. They first head to Piazza San Marco, the historic centre of Venice which is dominated by the grandiose and regal Basilica di San Marco.
It’s likely, if you’ve already visited Venice, you’ve ticked off some Spider-Man filming locations without even meaning to!
5. Ponte di Rialto, Sestiere San Polo, Venice
The next Spider-Man: Far From Home location is a big one. The water Elemental erupts out of the Venician canal right next to the pretty Rialto Bridge. This is where most of the action takes place as Peter Parker AKA Spider-Man and Quentin Beck AKA Mysterio tackle the water beast.
6. Leonardo Da Vinci Museum, Venice
(not an accurate Spider-Man: Far From Home location, unfortunately)
This one of the first Spider-Man: Far From Home locations I’m not sure about. While Peter is on one side of Venice, getting super soaked by a monster, the teachers and the rest of the students remain blissfully unaware on the other side of the city.
They’re checking out the Leonardo Da Vinci Museum in Venice. Which does actually exist, but the building they visit in Far From Home is somewhere totally different. Just another ornate, gorgeous building I guess!
7. Santa Maria Formosa Church, Venice
Mr Dell and Mr Harrington, the chaperones, aren’t oblivious for long as the Elemental and Mysterio leap out next to them and knock over the Santa Maria Formosa Bell Tower.
Though Peter desperately tries to save the tower by wrapping a web around the damage, his efforts are fruitless. Fortunately, Far From Home is a movie. And you can still visit the bell tower IRL if you visit Venice today.
8. Ponte de L’Arsenal o del Paradiso, Venice
After Nick Fury finally catches up with Peter, they take a romantic moonlight gondola ride down Venice’s Arsenal, it’s old shipyard district. You can see the twin towers and Ponte de l’Arsenal in the background.
Coincidentally, the Avengers have a secret underground lair right in the heart of Venice! How lucky is that?!
9. Cortina d’Ampezzo, Belluno
The Spider-Man: Far From Home locations (and plot) have left Venice! Nick Fury has hijacked Peter’s summer vacation and the teenagers are on an upscale bus towards Prague instead of Paris. The title card says the gang are travelling through the Eastern Alps in Austria. In reality, the scenes set in Austria were shot south of the Austrian border (and just north of Venice) in the Italian ski resort town of Cortina d’Ampezzo.
Having briefly visited Trentino last year, I have to agree that this Alpine region of Italy is bloody gorgeous. And the perfect stand-in for Austria.
Spider-Man: Far From Home Locations in Prague, Czechia
10. Carlo IV Hotel, Prague
The Midtown Techies aren’t slumming it in third rate hotels anymore. Your boy Nick Fury has hooked them up big time for the Prague leg of their trip. The bus pulls up outside Carlo IV Hotel which is a stately five-star hotel, no less.
11. Vinohrady Theatre, Prague
Instead of attending the Festival of Lights, Peter tricks his chaperones and classmates to go to the opera instead where they will be safe from the Elemental attack. Prague’s Opera House is called the Vinohrady Theatre. It looks just as lavish and OTT as every other Opera House in Europe. The ideal place to spend four hours sat on your arse.
12. Náměstí Doktora Edvarda Beneše Square, Liberec
Peter takes on his second alter ego, Night Monkey, to assist Mysterio in taking down the last Elemental, Hellfire. Though you may think that the fight happens in Prague’s Old Town Square, the Spider-Man: Far From Home filming location is actually around 60 miles north in a Czech city called Liberec. Prague’s main square is just too busy to be shut down for so long and to erect an entire funfair set piece. But Liberec’s main square is a pretty good stand-in.
I’ve visited Prague and I couldn’t tell you this scene wasn’t shot there!
13. Charles Bridge, Prague
After evading Hellfire and making one of the worst decisions of his life, Peter Parker finally gets a chance to be alone with MJ. The young lovers take a moonlit stroll along Charles Bridge, one of the main tourist attractions in Prague. Usually, it’s swarming with tourists, living statues, caricaturists, you name it. Visiting in the wee hours of the morning is possibly the best time to visit, actually.
14. Hlavni-Nadrazi Train Station, Prague
Having cottoned onto what a sh*tbag Mysterio actually is, Spider-Man hitches a ride on the roof of a train leaving Hlavni-Nadrazi, Prague’s main train station, en route to Berlin to try and warn Nick Fury. Unfortunately, no Spider-Man: Far From Home locations were actually shot in Berlin!
15. Unidentified Pub Courtyard, Prague
After travelling to Berlin and barely escaping Mysterio’s elaborate illusion in the Berlin factory/warehouse/office space, Peter is back on a train to anywhere. Luckily for him, he winds up in a delightful Dutch town called Broek op Langedijk. The town does exist in real life, but the film didn’t shoot there.
Instead, the blink-and-you’ll-miss-them Netherlands-based scenes were shot in a sizable pub courtyard in Prague dressed up to look like some cute, countryside town square. A courtyard! Unfortunately, I don’t know which pub in Prague. If you know, please leave me a comment! Dank u!
And the tulip field where Happy picks up Peter Parker in his private jet (thus destroying the tulip field) was all CGI.
Spider-Man: Far From Home Locations in London, UK
16. Hatfield House, Hertfordshire
Upon arriving in Prague, Peter reunites with Nick and Quentin to discuss their strategy for defeating the final Elemental. This time, the underground lair in question is actually shot in Hatfield House, a stately home just 30 miles north of London.
17. Alexandra Palace Theatre, London
When the students are still in Prague, Mysterio is already utilising E.D.I.T.H’s technology for his own gain. He rehearses his biggest illusion/attack on humanity yet in the Alexandra Palace Theatre. This is a really ornate, grand venue with a well-worn interior that makes it look abandoned, but thankfully it’s still a working theatre.
18. Holland Park School, London
Once Spider-Man arrives in Berlin, he’s picked up by Nick Fury and taken to some kind of Avengers office or ultra-modern warehouse/factory. Bizarrely, the filming location for this scene was Holland Park School in London.
Despite opening in the 1950s, the school had a bit of a facelift and apparently, it resembles a high-tech building in Berlin according to the production team at Marvel.
19. St Pancras International, London
The Midtown tech students arrive in London’s St Pancras International station to enjoy the final stop on their European vacation in England’s capital city. It’s a huge, grand Victorian building that has a lot of places to shop and grab a bite to eat as well as high-speed rail and Eurostar journeys to several European countries.
20. The Shard, London
Continuing Nick Fury’s ability to set up an office literally anywhere in Europe, Fury and Maria Hill hang out at the top of The Shard to conduct day to day business. It is the highest viewing platform in London, though, so that must help if you’re attempting to suss out trouble in the city.
21. White Nothe Cliffs, Dorchester
Very briefly, we see Happy and Peter’s super-fast jet fly over the ‘Dorset Coast’ on their way to save the day in London. Of course, it would be a bit silly to fly over the White Nothe cliffs in Dorset on your way to London as it’s a bit of a detour. But those cliffs sure are cinematic.
22. Tower Bridge, London
Back in London, Mysterio has arranged for his grandest illusion (a super-fusion of all four Elementals) to hit Tower Bridge (that way too many people think is called London Bridge). So much of the action during the last half hour of the film takes place here. This is all so Mysterio can kill Spider-Man’s friends who are stuck on Tower Bridge chilling in an open-top bus.
23. Tower of London
On the ground, Happy manages to land his plane before it’s destroyed in a drone strike. He rendezvous with Peter’s classmates and they all go into the Tower of London to wait for the whole thing to blow over and hide from the drones.
Specifically, they take cover in The Crown Jewels vault, of course. One couldn’t possibly hideout in any other wing of the Tower of London, could one? How vulgar.
24. London Stansted Airport, Essex
The last Spider-Man: Far From Home location is possibly the dullest European filming location of the movie. After an exhausting class trip, the tech students land back in the USA, specifically Newark Airport. Except it isn’t Newark Airport, it’s London Stansted Airport approximately 40 miles north of Central London in Essex. It doesn’t get more glamourous than Essex, folks.
