David sets out with his family to get the true Venice tourist experience, and meets a charming gondolier and his wife, who teach him all about the history and pride of the age-old tradition of the gondolas in Venice. They explore local hotspots and venture off the beaten path to a beautiful Venetian winery, sampling gourmet cicchetti along the way. David then spends time with Emanuel, a local fisherman, whose family has been fishing in the surrounding waters for over 500 years. He’s determined to honour his family’s past by giving present day tourists an authentic experience of fishing and cooking on his boat, while still holding on to their tradition and legal in a modern Venice.

David returns to his beloved Italy, but this time to experience cities he’s never been to. The northern cities of Milan, Verona, Venice, Cinque Terre, Bologna and Italia’s capital Roma act as main characters in this series. Join David as he explores these famous locations in ways that have never been seen before, where the people and their stories run parallel to the art, history, music and food of these great cities. This series captures the way the Italians celebrate life and live their very own Dolce Vita: with good food, humour, passion and spontaneity.
