Visions of Italy

From the Alps to Sicily, tour all of Italy from a spectacular vantage point. Italians call their home Il Belapase, The Beautiful Country, and it has never looked more breathtaking than this unique aerial tour. Shot in high definition from a helicopter-mounted camera and planned with precision for optimum lighting and angles, your tour is enhanced by informative narrative and a score of evocative regional music. Take an emotional visit to your family's homeland, revisit favorite sights, or realize your dreams of discovering Italy for the first time - whatever your inspiration - you'll never have a better view.

Northern StyleThe tour begins in the Alps at the northern border and continues through Lombardy to Genoa, along the Ligurian coast to Portofino, then inland over the Tuscan countryside to Florence. After dipping into Umbria, the tour turns northeast, culminating in Venice.

Southern StyleA seamless sojourn following the rugged western coastline to the toe of the ""boot"" at Reggio di Calabria and then back inland over the countryside to Rome

SicilyAs part of Italy but very much a land unto itself, Sicily has always defied categorization. With its unique and dramatic beauty shaped by powerful volcanic forces and its culture influenced by conquering forces throughout the centuries, it is a place like no other. From ancient fishing ports to modern autostradas, terra-cotta rooftops and azure waters to the haze of volcanic craters, this unique aerial tour provided striking views of all that Sicily was and has become.

Great picture - terrible sound
Review by Jim M. on 01/05/22 review stating Great picture - terrible sound
I did not purchase the DVD, but watched the show on PBS. The lady doing the moderating has a nice soft voice, except I could not understand anything she said without the music blasting. It is miserably common in the digital TV world for the picture to be flawless, and the sound is just along for the ride, a necessary evil.

Music too loud!
Review by Leelee on 01/05/22 review stating Music too loud!
I loved seeing the aerial view of Italy. I would of given it 5 stars but I couldnt stand the music being so loud. Good grief! I had to have the volume up to hear the narrator, and then when she quit talking, the music would get louder. Please! If you make more of these, keep the music soft in the background.

Excellent video of Italy, however there is room for improvement. The music gets louder every time the moderator stops speaking which is very annoying. This goes on throughout the entire video.The music should not overpower the video and should be kept as low background music only.

Disappointed
Review by Paola on 08/01/20 review stating Disappointed
Great views of the country but very disappointing because there is no reference to the beautiful island of Sardinia which, by the way, not only is part of Italy but one of its most beautiful parts!!!
