East The White Lotus your TV stay of choice? Because it’s mine. Sure,
everything most of the characters are horrible people, but looking at the beautiful scenery and the luxurious hotel is not a crime. We can indulge ourselves remotely, add the dream getaway to the Pinterest board, or maybe even plan our own budget trip. The White Lotus Season 2 was filmed on location in Sicily, an Italian island region in the Mediterranean Sea halfway around the world from the first season in Hawaii. But where exactly? Let me tell you.
The White Lotus season 2 went to these sicilian towns:
Exteriors were filmed in Palermo, Noto and the nearby Ionian Sea. This region of Italy has an active volcano, Etna, and many local vineyards. There is a wonderful castle you can visit called the Palazzo Conte Federico. There is also, I’m sure you can imagine, so many great foods to eat.
Taormina, the city where The White Lotus films the hotel scenes at the White Lotus, also has a magnificent ancient amphitheater built by the Greeks in the third century BC
Ok, but which hotel served as The White Lotus seaside resort?
It would be the San Domenico Palace, a Four Seasons hotel in Taormina, Sicily. The first season was also shot at a Four Seasons, Hawaii. Are you planning a stay? I hope you have one plot money to spend per night. The sequels in which the characters vacation on the show are in all three characters.
The production also hit the nation’s capital.
Not all parts of The White Lotus was shot on location, meaning an indoor or outdoor space that existed before, but it was all in Italy. The production used a studio outside of Rome on the mainland for the sets they had to build.
