Rick Steves' Rome: Eternally Engaging

In this hour-long travel special, Rick Steves explores the "Eternal City" of Rome, a grand and ancient metropolis rich with exquisite art, vibrant culture and centuries of history. Rick traces the rise and fall of classical Rome, meanders through the heart of Bernini's Baroque Rome and makes a pilgrimage to the Vatican. Then, he uncovers the charms of hidden neighborhoods filled with character and energy, enjoys a Roman feast, and mixes and mingles with the locals during an early-evening stroll through the city's romantic nightspots.
