    Dear David,
    how large does the whole area need to be and what kind of infrastructure is needed?
    how long will the area be occupied?
    Kind regards

    What about South West Film Studios in St Agnes. They’re no longer used and have the basic infrastructure, making it easier to set up and stay long-term.

    Hi David,

    The original set of Venice in Luxembourg was designed by Serbian production designer Miljen Kreka Kljakovic, and the construction and works were largely done by Serbian construction crew. So, I think the best choice for new construction of this set could be Serbia.
    Please email me at and we can discuss it in more details.

    Hello David.

    Greetings from Pula. Pula is the largest city in the region of Istria in Croatia, with a rich history. Nearby Pula has several good areas that might suit your needs. You may be interested in the fact that Pula and its surroundings has several authentic buildings from the Venetian era, considering that Pula was under the administration of the Venice, and they could serve as a scene. These are some pictures of authentic buildings. If you find this interesting, please feel free to contact me for more information and photos on , or my private mail,

    All the best wishes,

    Hello David. I don’t know detaily what and how do you want to rebuild, but my first idea was, that you need search location in Venezia style and very close to the water, with little bridges, which everybody keep in mind as a Venezia symbol. I attached several images from Poland, which can help, i hope. My name is Mirek, i’m production manager and producer from over 25 years experience. Mail:, mob.: + 48 502 52 16 16, office +48 22 208 34 88. Best regards, Mirek.

    Here are another images of the same location. Mirek.

    Here is another location. So i send 12 images from 2 locations. Mirek.

    Try Amsterdam we are called the Venice of northern Europe.
    If you want we can support your production here.

    Kind regards Franck Hakkert

    Hi David,

    Next to the pictures that I have send you of a city in Portugal that is called little Venice we also have lagoons in the Algarve where it’s very easy to work and the infra structure is perfect. Further the Algarve has the best weather conditions of whole Europe and Portugal is still not to expensive. Kind regards,
