Mt. Folgorito, Appuan Alps


The Western Gothic Line - Mount Folgorito


AirVuz contributor Dronzate brings us this excellent drone video from the Apennine Mountains of Italy's Tuscany region.  The video was filmed over and around Mount Folgorito.  Mt. Folgorito was part of the Gothic Line during World War II, when Allied soldiers worked their way up the Italian peninsula in a series of battles which collectively inflicted hundreds of thousands of casualties.  Famously, the 442nd Infantry Regiment, composed of Japanese-Americans, breached the Western Gothic Line here in the closing weeks of the conflict.

Check out this magnificent drone video from the Italian island of Elba, compliments of AirVuz contributor and pilot Marco Miele.  The video was shot over the town of Marciana Marina, which lies on the northwestern side of the island.  It's one of the most important towns on Elba, which is part of a small group of islands off the coast of the region of Tuscany and which marks the boundaries between the Ligurian and Tyhrennian Seas, both of which are considered inlets of the Mediterranean Sea.

Just a little bit of Siena

Marco Miel...

Take a tour of the Italian city of Siena in this excellent drone video by AirVuz contributor and pilot Marco Miele.  The "star" of the show is the Siena Cathedral, which dates to the 12th century and is the most significant landmark in this Tuscan city.  Easily recognized by the height of its bell tower, its white and black marble, and its complex facade, it's dedicated to the Assumption of Mary.  It's considered one of the great standing masterpieces of Greco-Romanesque architecture and one of the top attractions in Tuscany.

This stunner by Duncan DroneNuts will simultaneously show you the powerful beauty of Italy's Tuscany region and the amazing capabilities of the new DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone.  The video beautifully captures the famed rolling hills of the region, dotted with beautiful walled medieval era towns, sprawling vineyards, and baronial estates.  The video was shot on a family trip during the time of year when summer transitions to fall, showing a hint of the emerging autumn foliage in the famed mist-covered hills.

The culturally rich and historically significant cities of Florance and Pisa are located in Italy's Tuscany region. Both Florence, known as the birthplace of the Renaissance, and Pisa, steeped with a background focused on maritime activity, have plenty to offer tourists, including landmarks such as the Historic Centre of Florence, Michelangelo's Statue of David, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Drone pilot Karl Veca used his DJI Mavic Pro to provide a perfect aerial glimpse of these two Italian cities.

Windsurfing at Vada's White Beaches


Vada - Best of Windsurfing

Quino FPV...

Prepare to be blown away by this incredible first person view (FPV) drone footage of some very talented windsurfers off the coast of Italy, compliments of AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot Quino FPV.  The video was filmed near the "white beaches" of Vada in the Tuscany Region, on the Ligurian Sea.  The video features some phenomenal up-close windsurfing footage, which is extremely challenging to capture from the FPV pilot's perspective due to the speed of the windsurfers and the strength and direction of the prevailing winds.
