Where Was the Season 3 Finale of 'Succession' Filmed?

Season 3 of Succession ended with a surprising twist, but as the Roy family drama unfolded, viewers couldn't help but notice the stunning scenery in the background. So, where was the HBO series' finale shot?

The Roy family is whisked away from their New York City home in the final episodes of Succession Season 3 to Italy for Caroline's (Harriet Walter) wedding.

The characters on the show reveal that the wedding will take place in Toscana, but in other scenes, Logan (Brian Cox) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) leave the area by helicopter and boat to visit Lukas Mattson (Alexander Skarsgrd) in his stunning waterfront mansion.

According to ET, series star Matthew Macfayden revealed that those scenes, including the boating scenes, were shot in "the beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany and the lakes of Northern Italy."

Emily FitzRoy, a luxury travel consultant, was hired by the Succession showrunners to assist in the booking of season 3 shooting locations.

As a fan of the show, the venue expert told The Hollywood Reporter that she knew what kind of homes each character would prefer.

"I could tell right away where Kendall wanted to stay," she said.

"He'd want slick American bathrobes and a much more contemporary feel, while Lady Caroline would want aristocratic gardens," says the author.

According to FitzRoy, the locations she found are normally difficult to obtain, but they were available for filming due to the pandemic.

"They were extremely fortunate," FitzRoy speculated.

"These places get booked up years in advance, but due to the pandemic last year, when people weren't getting married, we were able to get our foot in the door with relatively short notice."

FitzRoy revealed details about a few of the locations seen in the final episodes of Succession Season 3 in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. She said that the residence Caroline and her fiance invite the Roys to stay in is La Foce, a Tuscan estate located between Florence and Rome.

The show was filmed there for three weeks in total.

"The gardens are the most beautiful in all of Italy," FitzRoy said, ironically, because they were designed by an Englishman.

"He came up with the lovely twisting lane of cypress trees that appears on every postcard."

The final episodes also featured Villa Cetinale, a 17th-century estate near Siena that was the first home of Pope Alexander VII, but Mattson's waterfront home, where the show was filmed for about a week, was one of the most eye-catching locations.

The estate, known as Villa La Cassinella, is located on Lake Cuomo's western shore.

"It's one of my favorite places because you can only get there by boat," FitzRoy said.

"And, despite being in the heart of Lake Como, which has become extremely popular in the last decade," says the owner, "it's extremely private."

All of these estates, according to FitzRoy, can be rented for up to $100,000 per week.
