On Friday he was spotted taking in the sights of Venice with his family, but come Saturday it was time for James Corden to get to work.
The 34-year-old actor was spotted on set in the Italian city on the first day of filming upcoming movie, One Chance.

Corden was joined by a pretty brunette as he strolled along the streets of Venice before settling himself at the eatery.
Wearing a dark blue shirt and a navy waterproof jacket, he was also carrying a rucksack as he made his way to the restaurant.
Once he was sat down and had a pint in his hand, the Gavin and Stacey star set about drawing attention to himself as he sang to the ladies he was sitting with while throwing his arms up in the air.

Corden is taking on the role of Paul Potts in the comedy which is centered around the real-life Welsh singer who won the first ever series of Britain's Got Talent.
The actor was clearly looking forward to his first day on set as he tweeted earlier on in the day: 'First day filming on One Chance in Venice today. Here we go!'
It was reported that Corden was considering wearing false teeth for the role.

According to The Sun, he has tried out 'six different sets of expensive false teeth.'
A source told the newspaper: 'James spent six hours in the dentist's chair at Ealing Studios with an army of people chipping in.
'The full make-up and wardrobe team had a say, with the director, producers and exec producers offering their thoughts.
'He filmed a full camera test ahead of filming kicking off next week.
'It's such a key part of the project to get right. Paul Potts is a distinctive-looking bloke, and his face is so well known in the UK, they have to get it spot-on.'
But although reality TV fans may be looking forward to Corden's portrayal of Potts, they may be more excited to know that Simon Cowell himself might be making a cameo in the movie.
Director David Frankel told Digital Spy that if the film features a recreated version of Potts's audition, the Britain's Got Talent judge will play himself.
'I haven't met him or talked to him, but one of our producers is in touch with him a lot. He's been very supportive from afar,' he said.
'He loves the story – it's just a testament to the power of his shows.'
