Gladiator Scene

Gladiator Scene

If you’ve seen the movie Gladiator, then you will surely remember the scene where Russell Crowe was walking through fields of wheat on his way back home.

 This and other scenes were shot in Val d’Orcia.  Specifically, the memorable scene of Russell Crowe walking home leads to the roadway leading to Agriturismo Terripile.  This Agriturismo is located in Pienza, Italy.  It consists of  3 apartments, 1 suite and 2 other rooms guests can rent.

Agriturismo Terripile is located a few kilometers from the centre of Pienza, a town and province in Siena.  Pienza, also known as the ideal city, was realized by the request of Pope Pius II.   In 1996, it was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site . 

While in the area, I had the opportunity to see this beautiful area and gaze at the field filmed in The Gladiator.

Here’s a video made of Agriturismo Terrapille.  The link to their website is here  

Be sure to watch until the end for the unforgettable Gladiator scene.
