What can we expect from this episode

Nick calls his new journey, which takes him from Naples to Sicily via Mount Vesuvius and Mount Etna, “The Volcano Express.” Nick travels past Pompeii on his way out of Naples and learns that the nearby city of Herculaneum was also destroyed by an eruption in A.D. 79. He learns that the team that helps decipher the site’s charred ancient papyri will receive a million dollars.

Nick decides to take a bubble car instead of the train along the beautiful Amalfi Coast. It’s completely electric, and it’s a tonne of fun, zipping him along the coast to Ravello. The local Amalfi lemons are used in his limoncello lessons at a palazzo-turned-luxury-hotel.

Nick is pleasantly surprised to find electric bike charging points on the train he plans to take from Salerno. He visits a community where many people live well into their 100s. Nick learns how to make delicious stuffed anchovies from a local restaurant owner named Delia, who claims that the couple’s long life can be attributed to their consumption of locally grown produce.

Nick’s train heads towards the heel of Italy and then across the sea to Sicily thanks to some ingenious engineering that loads the train onto a ferry. Nick’s main priority in Sicily is to get within striking distance of Mount Etna. A terrifying flight in a tiny gyrocopter that must be abruptly ended due to bad weather and low visibility.

Nick is grounded in gratitude for his continued survival. At a nearby winery, he finds out that Mount Etna’s volcanic activity has resulted in a wide range of soil compositions, each of which imparts a unique flavour to the resulting vintage. Nick rides the local narrow-gauge railway, which is rumoured to provide spectacular views of Mount Etna, because he is determined to see the volcano. but Etna remains hidden, shrouded in cloud.

Nick, accompanied by a volcanologist, drives up Mount Etna for the third time, hoping this time will be the charm. What Nick discovers about eruptions is shocking, and the volcano has one more surprise in store for him.

The presenter travels by rail from the extraordinary landscapes of Peru.
