DVOW Finalist in the Italian Dolomites


Dolomites by drone DJI mavic 2 pro 4 K - footage video dolomiti italia italy 4K IG PAGE : alessandro_campo


Contributor Alessandro_campo used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 to create this magnificent aerial video from the Dolomite Mountains of northern Italy. Part of the Southern Limestone Alps, the Dolomites are far from the tallest mountains in the Alps system - Mt. Blanc is nearly 50% taller than Marmolada, the highest Dolomite peak.  What they lack in altitude, they more than make up in prominence, as you'll see from these astounding views of the mountains which was picked as a DVOW Finalist in October, 2019.

Verona and Sirmione: Italian Cultural Treasures


Verona & Sirmione

FreD ...//...

Verona is the second largest city in northeastern Italy's Veneto region, after Venice.  Like Venice, Verona is considered one of Italy's great cultural centers; among other distinctions, it was the setting of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.  Lying just to the west of Verona is Sirmione, a small town at the south end of Lake Garda, which is Italy's largest lake and the border with neighboring Lombardy.  In this video, contributor FreD does a marvelous job of filming both of these treasures with a drone.

Contributor dronextravelxearth created this beautiful aerial tour of the Italian city of Verona, the "second city" of the Veneto region after Venice.  It is considered one of the great cultural treasures of Italy, on a par with Florence and Venice.  The video includes footage of Teatro Roma, Ponte Pietra, Castel San Pietro, Duomo di Verona, Santuario Don Calabria, and the Adige River.  Ride along for this amazing bird's eye tour of the city, which was famously the setting for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.  

Three Days in the Dolomites


3 days on the Italian Dolomites

Alberto Ar...

The Italian Dolomites are some of the most scenic mountains in the world. Just ask pilot Alberto Ardit who spent three days traveling through them, capturing epic aerial footage along the way. The locations he’s visiting include: Dobbiaco, or Toblach, in South Tyrol; the largest natural lake of the Cadore, Lake Misurina; Auronzo di Cadore in the Italian region of Veneto; and the Drei Zinnen, or Tre Time di Lavaredo, three distinctive battlement-like peaks in the Sexten Dolomites.
