Venice is one of Italy's most well recognized and treasured sights.  The magnificent Rennaissance city in the Veneto region is, unfortunately,  fighting a losing battle against tourism and water encroachment, leading some to fear that its days may be numbered.  In this video, top contributor and drone pilot Oliver Astrologo takes us on an aerial tour of this magical place, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. This video is nominated in our Cities & Urban category for the 2nd annual Drone Video Awards.

Content creator and pilot Thedronetrip used a DJI Mavic Pro drone and some very creative post-production editing to create this stunning aerial view of the great sinking city of Venice, Italy.  The aerial views of the city's canals will show you why this UNESCO World Heritage Cultural site has been used as the shooting location for numerous feature-length movies.  Notably, Venice was used as a shooting location for the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale as well as the 1979 installment Moonraker.

Contributor Nathan Jermy created this beautiful aerial mini-tour of Venice, the most well known city in northeastern Italy.  Shot across the islands that make up the city, much of the footage is of the Piazza San Marco (St. Mark's Square); sitting at one end of the square, the tower of the Church of St. Mark is the city's most recognizable sight.  James Bond fans will instantly recognize the Piazza: in the 1977 classic Moonraker (#12 in the series), 007 (played by Roger Moore) arrives in the Piazza on a gondola.

Using a collection of filming gear, AirVuz contributor and drone pilot Alin Constantin gives us a winter's view of the ancient floating city, Venice, Italy. His gear includes a DJI Mavic Pro for aerials and a GoPro Hero 5 + Karma Stabilizer for ground shots, giving us a nice blend of views. Along his journey he visits three of Venice's islands: Lido, home to the Venice Film Festival; Burano, known for its brightly colored fisherman's houses; and Murano, world-renowned for its history in glass-making.

There is definitely "truth in advertising" in the title of this first person view (FPV) tour of Venice, Italy, compliments of contributor pilot tommasocodolo.  Using an FPV racing drone, he was able to fly over St. Marks's Square (Piazza San Marco) at one of the most unusual times in the city's centuries-old history: when it was virtually shut down in the Spring of 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic.  The video will show you one of Europe's most iconic spots virtually devoid of people, from the unique perspective afforded by a racing drone.

Contributor Duminiciucbogdan created this spectacular drone video of Venice, the Italian city which was once the center of a powerful empire. Given its storied history, it's not surprising that Venice has been featured prominently in literature for centuries.  The spectacular city you see in the video was the setting for Shakespeare's drama Merchant of Venice, the great German novelist Thomas Mann's 20th century classic Death in Venice, and countless modern novels and short stories.

Venetian Lagoon

Italy's Venetian Lagoon is one of the world's most famous.  It's formed by the islands of the city of Venice and neighboring islands, which nearly separate the lagoon from the Adriatic Sea.  It has a surface around of around 515 square km, or just over 200 square miles, including the islands within it.  The lagoon was only formed about 6,000 years ago.  Largely covered by mud flats and tidal shallows, the lagoon is the largest wetland area in the Mediterranean Basin.  Check it out from above in this drone video by Sauron82.

AirVuz contributor and pilot Alberto Ardit used a DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone to create this beautiful aerial view of a small town near the Italian city of Venice.  The town of  Lio Piccolo sits on a series of canal-connected islets in the northeastern part of the Venetian Lagoon, a nearly-enclosed body of water off the Adriatic Sea, in which the island-city of Venice is situated.   Located in the heart of the largest wetland area in the Mediterranean, the area is known in part for its extensive bird life.

Drone Video Award winner Druno brings us this fantastic first person view (FPV) video of Venice, Italy.  Filmed while the city's public spaces were still largely empty due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the video opens with a shot along one of the city's canals.  The "star" of the show is the Santa Maria della Salute, one of Venice's most famous churches.  Distinguished by its octagonal dome.  Situated at the tip of the Punta della Dogana on the south side of the Grand Canal, the church was consecrated in 1681.

Flamingos!

Alberto Ar...

The great Italian city of Venice technically does not sit on the sea.  Rather, it's a series of islands on a lagoon which is created by the discharge of the Po and Piave Rivers and which is only thinly connected to the Adriatic Sea.  Extremely shallow in parts and with a constantly-changing mixture of seawater and freshwater, the lagoon plays an important role as a bird sanctuary.  In this drone video by Alberto Ardit, you'll get an aerial view of a flock of flamingoes cruising these famous waters.
