From the towns where she spent her honeymoon, to the humble hillside village which was her grandfather's home, Alex will also visit Rome - a city she lived in during her 20s - and she will uncover some of Italy's hidden treasures along the way.
The first leg of her journey sees her travelling across the north of Italy to discover some of its secrets. She has been to Venice many times before, but this time she's looking at it through new eyes – visiting a prison with a difference, as well as stirring up memories of her grandmother.
Alex will then spend some time in a hidden gem nestled among the Lombard Alps, before heading to Milan, the fashion capital of the country.
