Summary, etc.:
European travel skills: Join Rick Steves for a lively, multi-part slideshow lecture covering the essentials of smart European travel. Whether you're dreaming of going to Europe independently or on a tour, you'll benefit from Rick's latest tips on trip planning, packing, money, safety, communicating, transportation, sleeping, and more.
Travel as a political act: Rick Steves believes that thoughtful travel expands our worldview and shapes how we address the challenges confronting our nation. In this lecture, Rick shares how the other 96 percent of humanity views our nation, he explores how societal activism has grown naturally out of his travel experiences, and he gives you practical tips on how to broaden your perspective through travel.
European art: In this richly illustrated, three-part slideshow lecture, Rick Steves takes you from Europe's medieval era (castles of the Dark Ages, Romanesque and Gothic churches, and the rise of cities and trade) to the Renaissance (religious revolution, exploration, and masterpieces from Botticelli to Baroque) to the great art movements of Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Impressionism, Modernism, and the vibrant world of Europe today.
The Rick Steves tour experience: Dreaming of a trip to Europe? Take a step closer by test-driving a Rick Steves tour. Grab some popcorn, sit back, and see if the Rick Steves style of travel is right for you. Filmed during an actual "Best of Europe in 14 days" tour, you'll get to know real tour members and guides as they experience the day-to-day events of their trip, and share their candid comments. No actors. No script. Honest. Come ride along!
