From acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom comes the follow up to the BAFTA winning first series The Trip. Four years after they ate their way round the North of England Brydon and Coogan take their own Grand Tour around Italy, following in the footsteps of Byron and Shelley. The Trip to Italy reunites two men for more delectable food, sharp-elbowed rivalry and plenty of laughs.

I was compelled to write this review after reading the 1 star effort by the chap who didn't seem to understand that:

a) this isn't real - it's a mostly improvised melancholic comedy
b) Coogan and Brydon play caricature versions of themselves, particularly emphasising their negative personality traits.

I found this series more of an event to watch as you can't deny the beauty of their surroundings which they seem to take more for granted, further emphasising their celebrity status. Some of the improvised scenes, especially their commentary on The Dark Knight are pure genius and I also learnt plenty about Byron and Shelley too.

Where to go on the next trip? I'd like to see The Trip to Japan.

I loved the full 3 hour version of THE TRIP. I was overjoyed to hear there was another. They have hit on a great presentation - fine scenery, some character studies and salient remarks about the times we live in and the media - not to mention celebrities. Then there are the impressions, not just used for effect, but also to make other comments about the characters in a Pythonesque way. This one is more bittersweet - if there are more, great. If not, this is a good way to leave it, with a balance. Those who have seen both may understand why I write that. I heartily recommend it - I feel these shows will go down as classics, perhaps a new genre has even been invented here.

Not as laugh-out-loud funny as The Trip and not enough explanation of the food - but a lot more picturesque than north of England in autumn or winter.
Coogan seemed a lot more generous in his attitude to Brydon, who actually seemed less so than in the original. As though the roles and status had been reversed.
I'm a fan of both, but I suspect if you don't know them and their style this wouldn't be much fun.
The Trip series was better than the film version. In this case the film version might be preferable.

Not as perfect as the original The Trip, but still a must have if you've already got that. They are brilliant and the direction is very good too, but it's basically thr same formula adopted in the previous season and, if you will love it because of the italian setting, by being a foreigner, you will feel it's a little too cliche and posch in the selection pf the places, restaurant and situations, if you see it from an italian point of view.

The first series of The Trip was sublime, hilarious, borderline-genius and in a part of the world I know well. Series 2 in Italy was on first-watch a bit of a disappointment especially the first episode. BUT, the more I have watched it the funnier it gets! It is not as good as series 1 but it is a very, very funny series. Would recommend

The next best thing to visiting Italy yourself. The Michael Caine impressions, banter, and wind-ups are a pleasant bonus.

Very good,but very different to the first 'The Trip'. Focus is much more on relationships,than the food or indeed Italy. Rob Brydon & Steve Coogan are such a pleasure to watch.
