In the northeast of Italy on the border of Austria, Slovenia and the Adriatic Sea, the Italians are living life large. Friuli Venezia Giulia—the area where this edit was shot—is a paddlers paradise, and when the sun is shining, the locals take full advantage. Beautiful beaches, gorgeous bays and breathtaking backwaters are just some of the offerings you’ll enjoy in this clip. The Italians themselves aren’t ugly, either. Sit back, relax and enjoy vicariously. Then book your flight.
