This new DVD with a 33 minute virtual walk on the island of Burano
is the perfect companion to a treadmill, Nordic Track, or exercise bike,
or is the perfect gift for family and friends.
Just place it in a DVD player, step onto your treadmill,
and instantly you will experience a spring walk on the island of Burano,
one of the most picturesque islands in the world.
Filmed with a professional television camera and camera stabilization equipment,
the camera seems to float as it pulls you through colorful streets,
around corners, and over quaint bridges in this unique island village.
This is not a traditional travel video.
There is no narrator and there are no stationary shots of buildings, statues or fountains.
Instead the television camera is constantly moving forward, transporting the viewer
beside a tranquil canal with boats, through a wide piazza, and over a narrow stone bridge.
You are truly experiencing a spring day on the island of Burano.
The walk comes with a choice of two soundtracks:
You may choose to listen to the lively, upbeat music suitable for walking on your treadmill
or you may choose to hear the natural sounds as they were recorded on site in Burano.
Both stereo soundtracks are included on the DVD!
Exercising has never been easier or more enjoyable!
And these videos are so rich in details
that you will notice something new every time you view them.
But you don't have to have an exercise bike or treadmill
to enjoy this DVD.
It also makes the perfect gift for people who want to experience Burano in a totally unique way, a way not possible with traditional travel videos.
Your 33 minute Burano walk begins at the vaparetto stop as you arrive on the island from Venice.
You will walk the streets with the locals as they go about their day-to-day activities.
You will enjoy the early spring day as young trees begin to show off their foliage.
Once known for its exquisite hand-made lace, today Burano still houses a school to
preserve the art of lace making. You will pass stalls and kiosks along your route where
lace tablecloths and christening gowns can still be purchased.
As you walk beside the island's main canal you pass lovely window boxes with their
brightly-colored flowers. Ladies of Burano like to hang their laundry outside
their colorful houses to dry in the breeze blowing off the Adriatic.
Everywhere you look on this island you will see how important a part the primary colors play
in the very life of Burano. The tiny houses and shops lining the canals form a delightful palette
for the eye, and great attention is paid to little details of color in this ancient village.
A BONUS CHAPTER with a 12 minute mini-documentary on The Lagoon Islands of Venice
is also included on the DVD!
