Rome Walks: The Piazza Navona To Pantheon (4K)

Piazza Navona is a public open space in Rome, Italy. It is built on the site of the Stadium of Domitian, built in the 1st century AD, and follows the form of the open space of the stadium. The ancient Romans went there to watch the agones, and hence it was known as “Circus Agonalis”.

The Pantheon is a former Roman temple and since the year 609 a Catholic church, in Rome, Italy, on the site of an earlier temple commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus. It was rebuilt by the emperor Hadrian and probably dedicated c. 126 AD.

Walking Tour: Sovana In Tuscany, Italy (4K)

Sovana is a one street town with an intriguing Romanesque Cathedral. A stone’s throw from the most impressive Etruscan necropolis in Tuscany, Italy. It’s one of the most picturesque villages in the region.

Sovana lies just a few kilometres from Pitigliano, at the southern end of Tuscany. It doesn’t take long to see the town, but it leaves a lasting impression nonetheless. It’s one of the tufa towns and highlights of the Maremma.

Tilt-Shift Timelapse Views: Venice, Italy (4K Video)

Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower offering views of the city’s red roofs.

Places that I probably would not have visited without the pandemic. I wanted to go to Venice for a long time, but never really was in the mood to put up with such an over-touristy place. So last summer during peak pandemic seemed like the time were I could finally go there. Of course it is still a very touristy place, but just much less crowded than normally. However, to my surprise I really liked the city a lot. It’s probably one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to and I can even see myself going there again in the post pandemic future in off season…
