Here’s a visual delight for one’s eyes – filmed from the air, it is a virtual panoramic tour of Venice in Italy and it shows this enchanting city in all its considerable glory.
The tour, by non-commercial panoramic and 360° video and photography specialists, AirPano, is superb! Well, I think so and I admit to being a little biased because I do love the work of AirPano.
Anyway, take a look at it and see what you think. If you’ve never been to Venice, after watching this, you’ll probably want to. On the other hand, even if you have seen Venice in the flesh, you may well end wanting to return. I want to.
For maximum effect, I recommend using the full-screen view – you can zoom in and out, and move up and down too. There’s music, so if you are in your office or the children are in bed – keep the volume down.
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
There are seven sections. Click on the little helicopters to view each of them.
I hope you liked that, I certainly did!
By the way, AirPano can be commissioned by means of sponsorship agreements to carry out projects. The cost, in case you are interested, starts from between €5000 and €6000 depending on what is required. However, being based in Russia, commissioning AirPano probably won’t be possible for Europeans owing to the sanctions currently in place. A pity, but the sanctions won’t last forever!
By the way, in addition to Venice and Orvieto AirPano has filmed some other areas of Italy. I know which, but have been sworn to secrecy.
Just in case you might want to visit Venice, you can find a vast selection of Venice hotels and other accommodation along with reviews on Booking.com: Venice hotels and Venice Lido hotels. If you click on those links and make a booking, Italy Chronicles may earn some commission which will help keep this site going.
