"This set is wonderful - a grand tour through the art of Tuscany in churches and museums that one would wish there were time to visit during a trip to Italy. No talking heads or pompous "experts". Just the art with an intelligent off-camera narration. And what art! Great for those who are planning a trip to Tuscany as well as those who can't get there in person."
Great focus on overlooked sites

"This series of dvds does a very good job of interesting and introducing the viewer to artworks and their locations that they might not have considered visiting in person. It hits very few of the usual suspects, like the Uffizi, in favor of out of the way sites with underrated works of art. There is also a sincere focus on early Renaissance artwork and even medieval works of art."
