If you have never been to Italy, this is why you should try to go, and if you have been, this may help you reminisce. This is what one Wisconsin family saw as everything great that makes up Rome, Florence, and Venice. Recommended to watch in HD, it is worth the time waiting to load.
Filmed with a Canon EOS 60D camera and EF-S 18-135mm lens, as well as the GoPro Hero HD camera (the pole shots). Edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5, in addition to work with After Effects and Flash CS5.5 and the Advanced Visualization Studio (AVS) of Winamp Media Player.
