Since I just returned from a week-long Italy checking out Baglioni Hotels in Florence (in photo above), Rome, Venice and on the Tuscan Coast, I was intrigued by an email I received today about a new video featuring Italy destinations in popular movies.
Here’s what it said:
The Italian National Tourist Board is proud to announce the launch of “Italian Emotions, The Directors’ Dream”, a video showcasing Italy through the images of nine of the most successful movies filmed there. The video combines the extraordinary beauty of Italy with the exciting performances of popular stars such as Matt Damon, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, Jude Law, Roberto Benigni, Gwyneth Paltrow, Monica Bellucci, Giancarlo Giannini and other famous artists.
I usually don’t watch videos sent to me during the workday, but with Italy on the brain and probably still on the hips (yes, I ate my way through the country), I had to check it out. And I’m glad I did, it’s such a beautiful montage. It makes me want to hop on a plane and return…today!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did:
More about Baglioni Hotels
Baglioni Hotels is a family-owned company dating back to the mid-70s. The hotel group features six luxury hotels in Italy—each uniquely different in design and vibe—from historical to modern. They also operate three hotels in France and one in the UK. I visited four during my trip: Baglioni Venice, Baglioni Rome, Baglioni Florence and Baglioni Cala del Porto (Tuscany). I was impressed by the personalized service and warmth of the staff—at each location, the hospitality extended was like I was family. And if you like hotels in the heart of a city’s action, Baglioni’s locations can’t be beat. Stay tuned for reviews of each property.
