Consummate traveler, host and best-selling guidebook author Rick Steves returns for a ninth season of the travel series RICK STEVES' EUROPE.
Whether you want to visit Siena’s wild Il Palio horse race or explore the forested mountains of Transylvania for a peek at an old German fortress, Rick provides informative and enlightening ways to enjoy Europe's great cities and off-the-beaten-path discoveries.
"Assisi And Italian Country Charm" - In the Italian countryside, Rick connects with rustic, traditional culture: enjoying an agriturismo (farmhouse inn), seeing how prosciutto and pecorino cheese are made, and hiking down into deep and ancient wine cellars.
He ends in Assisi — the hometown of St. Francis — which retains its spiritual aura to this day. Like pilgrims, he explores its stony center before trekking to its awe-inspiring basilica, built on the tomb of the beloved saint.
Past episodes and clips of RICK STEVES' EUROPE are available for online viewing.
