The Alps
The villains seem able to find James Bond just about everywhere. In The Spy Who Loved Me, they track down 007 on the ski slopes in the Alps, as Bond and his pursuers exchange gun fire while plummeting down the face of a mountain. Interested in following his footsteps? Be sure to check out the ski museum in Kitzbuhel, tour any of the region's mesmerizing, historic churches, or try "downhill chairlifting," which involves enjoying the panorama while riding the chairlft from the top of the mountain to the base. Too tame for your tastes? Then grab a parachute and jump off the mountain instead — it's called parascending, and it's plenty dangerous.
