Absolutely fascinating ......
19 December 2009 | by RozindaSee all my reviews

I'd be surprised if anyone didn't enjoy this enthralling voyage as Francesco sails the old trade route from Italy to Istanbul. Francesco is Venetian, so has an ancestry of the great Venetian traders to the Near East, and anyone who enjoys sailing will love the scenes on his 19th century schooner.

This is one of the best TV series I've seen and for anyone interested in the history of the Venetians and trade in the past. Francesco is so engaging, so charming, so knowledgeable. He visits the old ports along the trade routes and out into the countryside to see relevant famous places, but also he has an entree to places we ordinary folk can't always visit, so the viewer feels privileged to see these places.

Not to be missed, even if you had never thought before about these places - you will be fascinated, I am sure, and want to learn more. Next we're going to watch Francesco's Italy...
