Series overview
 
Gino D’Acampo is back in his homeland of Italy, and in this eight-part series he is exploring the Mediterranean coast, from the glittering elegance of its cliff-top towns, to its mountainous rustic villages. He’ll be immersing himself in the rugged, wild islands, traveling along dramatic coastal roads, and across the sea, to reveal the best-kept secrets of this coast.
 
Along the way, of course, he’ll be serving up plenty of mouth watering authentic food.
 
Gino says: “I'm exploring the places that I think reveal the very best of the Italian west coast and its cuisine, from the Tuscan coast in the north, the middle stretch studded with show-stopping Sorrento and Capri, and right down to the southern tip of the boot and the Aeolian Islands.”
 
Episode 6 - Naples
 
Tonight Gino returns to the area he grew up in, the bay of Naples. Home of the pizza, street food and fantastic seafood, this is foodie paradise. First Gino shows us how to make THE Neapolitan breakfast, then for lunch he goes up on the roof to make a classic fish dish and then after a flying visit to the foothills of the mighty mount Vesuvius, Gino’s back on the coast to whip up a romantic dinner for two.
