From the Piazzetta San Marco. SJ

Supposedly the back of Venini. Actually it's near the Fenice Theatre much further to the west.

Think I'm rather pleased to have found it. Actually a gondolier recognised the bridge right away from the photo I took from the TV in the days before screen grabs. SJ

Lee and Moore.

Bit of unsubtle product placement. Moore turns around and heads up the road with a view of Corcovado Mountain from where Christ the Redeemer overlooks the city.

Supposedly out in the countryside. Moore dismounts in the next cut but this could be a stuntman in this shot. The interior (MI6 headquarters) was the San Nicolo Monastery, Venice, Lido, according to imdb, who may have received the info from Mulder who puts this at the base of Rio's Corcovado, the Largo do Boticario.

  • 'Now' required

Temple 1 of the Tikal National Park, Guatemala, and there's an actress bottom left. The rest of the film is set in space and therefore interiors.
