Shot in high definition, "Visions® Of Italy: Northern Style" offers the ultimate vacation postcard of Italy — the sights and scenes immortalized in literature, movies, and art for centuries — seen as never before. Stunning aerial footage and evocative Italian music from Luciano Pavarotti to Connie Francis showcase unprecedented views of Siena, Florence, Pisa, Venice, Lake Como, the Alps and more.
"Visions® Of Italy: Northern Style’s" flight begins where much of the world’s cultural arts began – in Florence, where the magnificent Duomo and the Giotto Bell Tower forever recall the power and majesty of ancient city states and Italian ingenuity. The program continues over the Tuscan countryside, around the famed Tower of Pisa, along the chic Italian Riviera beaches of Portofino and Camogli to the vineyards of Veneto to the Venetian canals, Christopher Columbus’ Genoa, Romeo and Juliet’s Verona, the ski resorts of the Italian Alps, and the leisurely grandeur of Lake Como.
