This article is an itinerary.


For the seventeenth adventure of Sir. Ian Fleming's ever popular spy/lady killer series, secret agent extraordinare James Bond travels the globe in a race to prevent a worldwide financial meltdown. As Pierce Brosnan's first jaunt into the tuxedo, Goldeneye relaunched James Bond as a viable film franchise after Timonthy Dalton's ill fitting double showing.

So if you're ready, grab that Walther PPK, down that Vodka martini, and rev up that BMW Z3 and let's hit the road.

The tour

Actual dam in Switzlerland where the dive was filmed

Arkhangelsk The infamous opening shot. To gain entry into the chemical weapons factory, James bungie jumps from the top of a dam. Trevelyan is of course already inside, "You're Late 007"

The Casino

Monte Carlo After a thrilling car chase through the French Alps with Ms. Onatopp, 007 suits up and settles in at the Bacarat table. The Monte Carlo casino is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Europe. After losing to James, Xenia is understandably miffed "Enjoy it while it lasts. "

MI6 Headquarters in London

London Called back for a briefing with M after the theft of the EM shielded Eurocopter Tiger, James is tasked with finding out who is behind the plot. Stopping by Q's laboratory to pick up a few gadgets, Bond drives off in his new Z3 but not before Q gives him some sage advice "Need I remind you, 007, that you have a license to kill, not to break the traffic laws. "

Goldeneye control Dish in Severnaya

Siberia Xenia and Ourumov fly the Tiger to fictional secret weapons facility Severnaya deep in the Siberian tundra.

The Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg

Saint Petersburg Needing more information Bond heads to Saint Petersburg to meet up with American agent Jack Wade who points him in the direction of Valentin Zukovsky. Their meeting is surprisingly cordial "Walther PPK, 7.65 millimeter. Only three men I know use such a gun. I believe I've killed two of them."

The Bronze Horseman

Having escaped with Natalya, Ourumov leads Bond on a merry chase through the streets of Downtown Saint Petersburg. Commandeering a T-55 tank James is hot on the pursuit and lays waste to trucks, cars and APCs not to mention a certain Bronze statue. " Use the bumper! That's what it's for!"

Lake in Cuban jungle

Cuba Having spiked Boris's computer 007 and Natalya follow the signal to Cuba. Now where does one find a giant satellite dish in the middle of the jungle?
