Travel in Brief

People watch a panoramic projection of Italian scenes at Grand Central Terminal in New York.

NEW YORK — If visiting Italy isn’t on your agenda, a 360-degree video installation in New York City of the country’s magnificent landmarks may whet your appetite.

Called “Panorama,” the wrap-around screen went up in Grand Central Terminal last week. Visitors enter an oval room-like structure in the terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall where they’re enveloped by scenes of Italy.

The video takes visitors over the Roman Coliseum and through Italy’s vineyards to a fashion show and a luxury car racetrack. The installation first debuted at the Expo 2015 Milan. It runs through July 20.

DUB — Theme park chain Six Flags Entertainment Corp. says it is in “discussions” with Saudi Arabia to pursue developing amusement parks in the ultraconservative Sunni kingdom.

Officials in Dubai hope to open a Six Flags theme park by late 2019.
