[edit] Information

Rick Steves Europe: Collection 2 Rick Steves has been the "travel guinea pig" for American Public Television since Travels in Europe with Rick Steves debuted in April of 1999. In his program, Rick shows some out-of-the-way places the average traveler misses offers countless travel tips, and always enjoys being immersed in the adventure.

[edit] The Heart of England

At Oxford and Cambridge, we'll see where kings and prime ministers studied. Then we'll wander through Blenheim Palace and visit the Industrial Revolution at Ironbridge Gorge.

[edit] Lisbon

We'll stroll Lisbon's waterfront and back lanes, and hear some soulful fado music. Then we'll head over to Sintra to explore its fanciful castles and ramparts with grand views.

[edit] Portugals Heartland

Let's dance on the beach at Nazare, marvel Batalha's abbey, revel with students in Coimbra, savor port wine, and get to know Portugal's fascinating second city of Porto.

[edit] Travel Skills Cruising

We'll learn how to get the most out of a cruise by planning, avoiding lines, and eating quick meals on the go. And along with the joys of cruising, we'll consider the downsides.

[edit] Greek Islands Santorini' Mykonos and Rhodes

Island-hopping to Santorini, Mykonos, and Rhodes, we’ll tour ancient ruins, sample rustic cuisine and compare beaches. And we'll see how cruising lets you do this efficiently.

[edit] Glasgow and Scottish Passions

Starting in vibrantly gritty Glasgow, we'll tap into Scottish passions as we tour Stirling Castle, have a wee dram on the Speyside Whisky Trail, and watch a sheepdog demonstration.

[edit] Scotlands Highlands

We'll visit Glencoe, Inverness, the Culloden battlefield — and keep our eyes peeled at Loch Ness — as we work up an appetite for modern Scottish cuisine and traditional folk music.

[edit] Scotlands Islands

On the windswept Isles of Iona and Skye we'll wander through Iron Age forts and a venerable distillery. Then we'll set sail for Orkney's 20th-century wartime harbor at Scapa Flow.

[edit] Sicilian Delights

We'll dine at the fisherman's harbor in Cefal├╣, ponder the ancient Greeks in Siracusa, commune with monks in a Capuchin crypt, and eat our way through a classic Sicilian banquet.

[edit] The Best of Sicily

In Palermo we'll sing with merchants, drop in on a contessa, and join in the passeggiata. Then we'll sip wine near Mount Etna, ponder Greek and Roman relics, and relax in Taormina.

[edit] Bulgaria

Bulgaria, so mysterious to most Americans, has a vivid identity as a crossroads of the Balkans. Rick traces the country's complex history, from ancient Thracian tombs to medieval Orthodox Christian monasteries to Soviet monuments.

[edit] Special European Festivals

Rick travels throughout the Continent celebrating the top 10 festivals, each one rich with tradition, great food and fun. In Spain, Rick runs the bulls in Pamplona and dances with locals at the April Fair in Seville. He also dons a mask in Venice for Carnival, which first began in 1162, and cheers on the horses at The Palio di Siena in Italy. I
