Editorial Reviews

There's so much more to capital cities than their world-famous landmarks. ESCAPE: Capital Cities of the World is a local's look at the most enchanting, historical, and fabulous capital cities on the planet. With stunning footage and fascinating narration paired to regional music, this series captures it all: unforgettable landscape and architecture, cultures, cuisine, and more. <BR><BR> LONDON<BR> London is alive with history wherever you go--from Roman remains on medieval streets to the modern London Eye. Despite plague, fire and the Blitz, the bustling city has survived to tell visitors a fascinating tale. <BR><BR> MADRID<BR> A mix of cosmopolitan metropolis and Arab influences, Madrid boasts the most beautiful castles, churches, plazas, and parks in the world. These spots, paired with a booming nightlife and art scene, make this capital city a captivating blend of old and new.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! October 7, 2009
Format:DVD
This series of DVDs is the best series of travelogues I have seen and I've seen many of them. It is very comprehensive and well done. They give you just enough historical background of each city then show you both the outside and inside of about 20 of the top attractions, such as cathedrals, museums, parks and palaces. They don't waste time showing you things that you can see anywhere as some travelogues do-- you see what is unique to the city being discussed. They concentrate on the core of the city. You will feel like you really know the city when the DVD is done. This DVD was produced in the 21st century so it is a generation more up-to-date than most travelogues you see. Both the photography and the narration are excellent. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars DEADLY BORING July 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the WORST travel video i have ever seen. I warn you, do NOT buy any of these.

Like a fool, I bought four of the series for my parents for a gift, but when i screened them, i was hugely embarrassed, and my parents said the shows were too boring to keep watching. The writer/director/narrator drove through the heart of each town once and shoot footage of one museum and one church. The rest is filler. Hardly any interiors. The guys is a genius -- after all there aren't many people who could make Rome and Paris and Amsterdam and Tokyo so utterly boring!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Quick Tour of Dublin and Paris July 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed with this book in that it seemed to very briefly cover some standard sights at each of the two cities. There was little depth in the coverage and a great deal of interesting information about the cities and their cultures seemed absent. I would prefer separate and much more intensive books about each of the two locations.
