This scenic series returns with Timothy West and Prunella Scales back at the helm, and this time, they’re starting their journey near Venice.

As they follow the route that Casanova and Lord Byron took to reach the city, the couple pass sumptuous palaces along the Brenta river and cross the Venetian Lagoon to arrive at St Mark’s Square.

Quickly escaping the hustle and bustle, they opt for a more tranquil journey through the smaller canals and end up at the marshy island of Torcello. A gentle travelogue, and Tim and Pru are such charming guides.
