Gregg Wallace visits some of Europe's best cities. At each destination, Gregg will get to soak up the history and absorb the local cuisine, mixing his passion for travel and food.
The presenter heads to Italy and reveals it is possible to enjoy Venice without breaking the bank. By avoiding the tourist traps he sees a new side to the city. Over three days, Gregg explores one of Italy's most distinct food cultures, explores the city's fascinating and surprising history, and meets the locals who make Venice so special.
Gregg heads to Athens, where he visits the Acropolis.
In Istanbul, the MasterChef judge explores the history of a city that has been the centre of three empires. He tours the street food stands on the Asian side of the Bosphorus, learns the centuries-old techniques of the baklava makers, joins a kebab master at his grill, and eats dishes that would have graced the tables in the Ottoman palaces of old. Gregg finishes his weekend off with a special trip to an island just off the coast for a feast of traditional Turkish mezze.
The presenter visits Budapest, and enjoys three days exploring one of the most popular city break destinations in eastern Europe. Gregg sees a show of horsemanship brought to Hungary by its earliest settlers, the Mongols, jumps in a Cold War era jeep for a tour of the city's more modern history, and explores one of Europe's largest castles. Plus, he also samples the local food.
