HBO’s hit Game of Thrones is mainly shot in Europe, around world heritage sites, major tourist attractions, and small towns. That sounds like a European PR travel company’s fever dream. Travel comparison site liligo.com has assembled an itinerary for fans of the show to fly to sites from all seven kingdoms of Westeros (Calgary, where showrunners shot some minor scenes with dire wolves; and Los Angeles, the site of the season 3 scene with Brienne and the bear, were excluded from the itinerary).
