Gino D'Acampo back in his home country of Italy, but this time he's experiencing it like never before. In this eight part series he is travelling on Italy's railways, taking in spectacular landscapes on some of the most scenic train journeys in Europe.

He's starting his epic journey in France because from the Alpine town Breil-Sur-Roya, he can travel into 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 travel onto the beautiful city of Turin, where he'll get a personal tour, Italian Job style, in the seat of a classic Fiat 500 and fulfil a lifelong dream of racing on top of the world famous Lingotto rooftop track.
