Next month, James May will return with a new episode of his Amazon Prime series, Our Man In Italy. The Grand Tour host will take viewers across the pond where he will explore what Italy has to offer. James will visit some of the country’s iconic sites, as well as try out some of its traditions.
The series will see James take on the Sicilian capital of Palermo to the peaks of the Dolomites.
During her trip, the former Top Gear star will discover culture, gastronomy, industry and even a little sport.
In an early clip from the series, James got himself into trouble after facing several challenges in Italy.
The start of the clip shows the host on a boat sipping wine, however, things take a quick turn when he smashes a glass.

“I hope it was as enjoyable to watch for you as it was for me,” he added at the end of the clip. “But I bet not.”
When James’ show was renewed last year, the series was put in jeopardy due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It was originally supposed to take viewers to America, but because of restrictions, show bosses had to change their plans at the last minute.
At the time, the presenter took to Twitter to share the news with his followers, he said: “It was recently announced that the second season of my Amazon series, Our Man in, I was going to the USA and it was going to be awesome.
“But, unfortunately after making this announcement, we have now found out that we cannot go, for various complicated and rather annoying reasons like Covid and Visas.”
James may be famous for his time on Top Gear and now, The Grand Tour, but his solo series quickly became a hit with viewers when it launched in 2019.
Our Man in Japan sent fans up a storm as they watched him explore the country and share his enthusiasm for its culture.
His journey took him by land, air and sea as he met some of Japan’s most interesting people, including one of the few remaining samurai sword makers in the country.
James May: Our Man in Italy will launch on Prime Video on July 15.
