Visions of the Great Cities of Europe
Not yet reviewed.
Visions of the Great Cities of Europe samples a variety of cultures like no guide book could. From the air we see the majestic architecture of Vienna, the incomparable coastline of the Côte d’Azur, to the timeless monuments of Rome,. Ground footage brings us a native’s view of Amsterdam’s bicycle culture and winding canals and Prague’s Old Town Square. Unobtrusive narration is like a well-travelled friend giving you insider tips about where to go and what to see.
The whirlwind journey begins in London, sweeping over Tower Bridge, the London Eye, and then coming to ground level to Buckingham Palace. Then it’s off to the Netherlands and Old Amsterdam, the easy going city where one could spend days people-watching in “the Dam” before a trip to the dichotomous terrain of Budapest.
We follow the Mediterranean sun to the opulence of the French Riviera and the tiny country of Monaco. VISIONS of THE GREAT CITIES OF EUROPE spotlights the “must see” sites of these metropolitan meccas, as well as the more intimate moments that make a city personal. Rome, the Eternal City, boasts treasures like the Coliseum along with historical landmarks with modern focus, like the socializing and shopping surrounding the Spanish Steps. A speed train then takes us to Vienna, where landmarks like the Sacher Hotel and Karlsplatz are covered in typically Viennese three-quarter time before the VISIONS series’ first visit to the Czech Republic in colourful Prague.
VISIONS of THE GREAT CITIES OF EUROPE offers the charm of old Dublin, followed by the culture of Florence, the romance of Venice, and finally Paris, where we enjoy Quasimodo’s bell tower view, the Tour Eiffel, and even a taste of the Moulin Rouge.
