Stanley wore sunglasses to protect his eyes from the autumn sun.

The star enjoyed the gondola ride alone as the camera crew crammed into another boat next to the actor.

The series follows Stanley as he travels through Italy to discover lesser-known places and explore their cultures, cuisine and history.

The show premiered on CNN in the states in February 2021 and has already received two Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including one for Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series and was renewed for a second season.

It comes after Stanley described how three years after a grueling oral cancer treatment, he still “can’t eat everything he wants.”

The star shared insight into his health battles during an appearance on Lorraine last week, explaining how he used his love of food to explain his cancer battles in his new memoir.

Stanley also revealed that he had to be fed through a tube for six months while undergoing radiation therapy to his throat, which destroyed his taste buds and saliva.

Of his battle with cancer, Stanley said, “It was very…it was much worse than I thought. The tumor was so large that it was inoperable. The cancer hadn’t spread.’

The Hunger Games star stated three years later that he still can’t eat everything he used to enjoy.

He added: ‘I ate through a feeding tube for six months. Three years later everything is fine, but I still can’t eat everything I would like to eat.’

Stanley also revealed that he lost his sense of taste for five days when he contracted Covid-19 last year, adding: “It was a bit of a panic.”

Stanley previously revealed that he had lost about 30 pounds while undergoing treatment for oral cancer after losing his sense of taste during chemotherapy.

The Burlesque actor also said his “taste buds and salivary glands had been destroyed, as was the inside of my mouth, and it really took two years to get back to almost normal.”

The actor recently revealed that the tumor in his tongue was too large to operate, forcing him to endure high-dose radiation and chemotherapy.

Worryingly, Stanley spoke of his battle with cancer: “It was very…it was much worse than I thought.  The tumor was so large that it was inoperable.

It was during this time that the actor lost his sense of taste.

When asked what it was like to go through that, Tucci replied, “It was devastating.”

He added: ‘Luckily, the cure rate was very high. So it’s now three years later and everything is fine, but I haven’t been able to eat solid food for half a year.’

While his battle with cancer is clearly taking its toll, the actor took a moment to note how happy he is to be alive.

“That said, it’s a small price to pay to stay alive and be able to accompany my family,” he noted.
