Trieste: Italy's Adriatic Port


Drone Shots: The Great Port City of Trieste, Italy


Trieste is one of the largest cities in northeastern Italy and the capital of the automous Friuli–Venezia Giulia region.  Trieste is the easternmost city in Italy, lying just a few km from Slovenia to its east and also from Croatia to its south.  Situated at the north end of the Adriatic Sea, it's also the largest port on that body of water and it's Italy's #2 port by cargo tonnage after Genoa.  For hundreds of years, Treiste served as the major port of the Austro-Hungarian Empire; control shifted to Italy after World War I.

Contributor Bryceogers created this beautiful drone video of the Udine Province of northeastern Italy.  It's the largest province within the semi-autonomous Friuli–Venezia Giulia region, which covers italy's northeastern corner.  Lying between the Adriatic Sea and the Julian Alps, the region is not only spectacularly beautiful but also of immense strategic importance relative to key historical trade routes.  The video captures the natural beauty of the province, filmed during the depths of the winter season.

Peak in the Friulian Dolomites


Campanile di Val Montanaia


While Italy's Dolomite Mountains lie primarily in the Trentino-Alto-Adigio and Veneto regions of the country, they do extend further east into the Friuli Venezia Giulia region.  In this excellent video by former Drone Video of the Week Finalist RyanFlies, you'll get an aerial view of one of the peaks of the Friulian Dolomites: Campanile di Val Montanaia.  The mountain has a summit elevation of about 7.1k ft. above sea level or just under 2.2k m.  The video includes footage from a DJI Mavic 3 as well as from a first person view (FPV) quad.
