Here’s where you can find the “Wonder Woman” scenery that took your breath away

In the new critically acclaimed movie “Wonder Woman“, the dark setting of World War I is contrasted with the lavish island nation of Themyscira.

The fictional homeland of the superhero, played by Gal Gadot, is meant to symbolize an “oasis of hope”, reminiscent of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, according to MNN.

“What is Themyscira?” production designer Aline Bonetto said. “It’s a beautiful vista with a coastal landscape, but not the kind you think of for your holiday. It’s still wild, rocky, green… Problem was, all the beautiful beaches in the world that sit below big cliffs disappear beneath the tide, so for a part of every day you have no beach. And we were shooting in March, which in Europe is still cold.”

The production team considered over 47 locations around the world before settling on Italy’s Amalfi Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage site that stretches 25 miles along the Mediterranean Sea.

Italy had beautiful weather, a beautiful blue-green sea, not too much tide, not too much wave,” Bonetto added. “Our effects team added some cliffs in post, and it was the perfect way to go.”

When you look at the stunning Amalfi Coast, you understand how easily the region became a mythical paradise.
