Episode one: Breil-Sur-Roya to Turin
Gino’s back in his home country of Italy, but this time he’s experiencing it like never before! In this series he’s travelling on Italy’s railways, taking in some spectacular scenery on some of the most scenic train journeys in Europe.
Tonight he’s starting his epic journey across the border, in Breil-Sur-Roya, France, and arriving in Italy in style on a train journey that takes him right through the Alps.
In Italy, he’ll meet a local doctor who does his rounds on horseback, through vineyards and hazelnut groves, where Gino will prepare a scrumptious chocolate cheesecake.
He’ll end his journey in the beautiful city of Turin, where he’ll get a personal tour- Italian Job style- in the seat of a classic Fiat 500 and fulfills a lifelong dream of racing on top of the world famous Lingotto rooftop track.
Here he’ll make his final dish of Fettuccine pasta with mascarpone and pork mince.
