'Set-jet' to holidays inspired by Oscar-nominated films

Go 'set-jetting' to enjoy these great movie locations

Timothee Chalamet might have impressed in Call Me By Your Name, but the Oscar nominee was not the only eye-candy in the drama. The scenic Italian landscape played a big part in making the film dreamy.

Here are some "set-jetting" ideas for movie buffs to get deeper into the stories of the places showcased on the big screen ahead of the 90th Academy Awards on Monday.

CALL ME BY YOUR NAME - NORTHERN ITALY

This drama depicts some of Italy's most stunning lakeside locations.

Trafalgar's Best of Italian Lakes tour takes guests on a sojourn through beautiful lakeside villages set against the foothill of the alps, and visits the picturesque Lake Garda and Bergamo city, where some of the most idyllic scenes of this multi-nominated film were set and where its main characters fall in love.

Admire your dream car at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello.

DUNKIRK - FRANCE

Visit some of the most historic battlefields in Europe on WWI and WWII Battlefields during this Special Interest trip.

A visit to the Musee Dunkerque 1940 located in Bastion 32, the headquarters for the French and Allied forces during the Battle of Dunkirk and Operation Dynamo is one of the many highlights.
