The Hotel Inspector has a new role at Channel 5 as Alex Polizzi brings to screens her Secret Italy. The series will embrace Alex’s lifelong love of Italy, providing Channel 5 viewers with a personal and revealing guide to this beautiful Mediterranean country.
Across the series, Alex will travel the nation, from North to South, taking in breath-taking cities like Venice, Milan and Rome. She’ll travel along the stunning Amalfi coast before ending her journey unearthing hidden tourist gems in Puglia – Italy’s best kept secret.
“This series is a sort of homage to my grandparents and the different regions of Italy they came from. I spent years living in Italy in my twenties, and this was an amazing opportunity to revisit the sites of so many family holidays and celebrations, as well as discovering some new wonders along the way.” – Alex Polizzi
Alex’s secret guide will interweave the stories of her family heritage in the country with visits to the places that mean most to her – from the childhood holidays she spent in the foothills of Rome to the places she worked in during her twenties. Alex Polizzi’s Secret Italy will show a whole new side to one of the Med’s most loved countries.
“Not only do we get to see a different side of Italy, as seen through and experienced by Alex Polizzi, we also see a different side to Alex Polizzi – a personal and emotional side that lifts the spirit and warms the heart.” – Ben Frow, Channel 5 Director of Programing
