Gino’s Italian Coastal Escape – ITV

Gino D'Acampo journeys along the east coast of Italy, taking in everything it has to offer and cooking a few dishes along the way

Gino D’ACampo begins his 700-mile journey down the lesser-travelled east coast of his home country, Italy.

He begins in the jewel of the Adriatic, Venice, arriving, of course, by boat – pretending he’s James Bond as he speeds into the Grand Canal and the breathtaking beauty of this
floating city.

When in Venice: hop on a gondola…

Gino hops on board a gondola then samples the traditional lunch of the gondoliers, cicchetti – small bites of delicious flavours on bread – before 
rustling up a few of his own.
