Movie Reviews

Destination Italy, Globe Trekker
A. Kretschmer | Boston, MA USA | 07/15/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

Silly commentary, sub-standard and grainy photography with dizzying cuts, and a general ignorance and obvious lack of taste on the part of the entire production team make this item an enormous rip-off!

Thin on content, one learns little to nothing about what to see. Important treasures and antiquities are glossed over or omitted completely. None of the mysitcal beauty and abundant charm of this wonderful country is conveyed, and in fact, leaves the viewer disenchanted.

If you're serious about learning about travel in a foreign country, stay away from Globe Trekker Productions, and look to Rick Steeves' video series for a great experience."
Roma spelled backwards means love!
Ed N | Kensington, Maryland USA | 11/16/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Globe Trekker is a really fun travel show with charismatic hosts. On this disc, popular host Megan McCormick explores northern Italy while Justine Shapiro journeys through southern Italy. We'll see some of the familiar sights, like Rome and Venice but also many less-visited locales which offer their own unique character, culture, and cuisine. Some of the sights include the Dolomites (great for skiing), Ivrea's fun orange-pelting festival, Parma (home of Parmaggiano Reggiano cheese), an awesome Ferrari car museum, and Verona's casa di Giulietta.

There's lots more, and Globe Trekker is fun to watch whether you're planning a vacation or enjoy experiencing new countries from the sofa.

This disc contains 2 episodes from the show, so it's a good bargain for your bucks, too!"
Great Travel Planner

"Great product if you are planning a trip to Italy and want to get a feel for the italian way of life.. I was slightly disapointed that it didnt include Rome, but you can buy this on a seperate VHS"
Great cinematography, wonderful "hosts"
A reader and a writer | Atlanta GA | 06/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD has some wonderful, little seen footage of small towns, and cultural events that an average tourist doesn't see. The hosts on both the Northern and Southern are very good; though I favor the host of the southern article the most. It is very well done, and doesn't disappoint."
