With its luxury yachts, helicopters and houses, Succession showcases the luxurious lifestyle of the Roy family. HBO drama season 3 was filmed in Italy and featured lavish residences that only Roys could afford. According to the series’ travel consultant, some Italian estates that have been used this season are renting over $ 100.00 per week.
Succession Showrunners Hired Luxury Travel Expert to Find Their Italian Locations
The last episodes of Succession Season 3 brings the Roy family to Tuscany for the wedding of their matriarch, Lady Caroline Collingwood (Harriet Walter). When searching for venues to suit their Italy-based scenes, the showrunners hired luxury travel consultant Emily FitzRoy.
“It was by chance that I looked in my spam emails in March which literally read, ‘Dear Madam, I’m the executive producer of a show you might not know about,'” FitzRoy told the Hollywood Report. “I was like, ‘Are you kidding? Of course, I know that. I’m a huge fan of the show. ‘”
After speaking to the producers, FitzRoy said she knows exactly what type of locations to find for each character. “I was immediately able to say where Kendall would like to stay,” she said. “He would want sleek American bathrobes and a much more contemporary vibe, and Lady Caroline would want aristocratic gardens.”

Through his company, Bellini Travel, FitzRoy has worked with several high net worth clients, including members of the British Royal Family and some not so different from the Roys.
“We only deal with 100 clients a year,” she said in her conversation with The Hollywood Reporter. “It was easy to advise [the Succession producers] not only on the houses that these people would rent, but also on what they would drink, what they would eat, what the flowers might look like for a party.
FitzRoy noted that some of the Italian estates seen on the show are renting for $ 100,000 a week and up. But coveted venues are often unavailable, she suggested. But due to the pandemic, the succession team was able to obtain them quite easily.
“They were very, very lucky,” recalls the travel expert. “These places are reserved years and years in advance. Due to the pandemic – people weren’t getting married last year – we actually managed to get our feet in the door on relatively short notice. “
The estates seen in the show are in Tuscany and Lake Como
One of the most impressive estates used in this succession season is Villa La Cassinella, which served as the backdrop for the residence of Lukas Mattson (Alexander Skarsgard). The Waterfront Home is located on Lake Como, approximately 33 miles north of George Clooney’s home, Villa Oleandra.
“I love it because you can only get there by boat,” FitzRoy told The Hollywood Reporter. “And it’s extremely private despite being in the heart of Lake Como, which has become very popular over the past decade.”
The other two locations, Villa Cetinale and La Foce, are located in Tuscany. Villa Cetinale was built for Pope Alexander VII, and La Foce is an estate with tall cypress trees depicted in pictures of Tuscany.
Viewers can revisit these luxurious locations in Season 3 of Succession, which is currently airing on HBO Max.
