Rick Steves, America's leading authority on European travel, returns to transport viewers to the continent's bustling cities, quaint villages and picturesque countryside.

In the seventh season of RICK STEVES' EUROPE, Rick rediscovers Rome, Florence, Paris, London, England's Lake District and Durham, and Venice.

These episodes distill Rick's 30 years of travel experience into programs filled with practical advice for taking a fun, affordable and culturally broadening trip to Europe.

"Paris: Embracing Life And Art" - In this second of two episodes on Europe's "City of Light," we ride a unicorn into the Middle Ages at the Cluny Museum; take a midnight Paris joyride in a classic car; get an extremely close-up look at heavenly stained glass in Sainte-Chapelle; go on a tombstone pilgrimage at Pere Lachaise Cemetery; and savor the Parisian cafe scene.

Few cites are so confident in their expertise in good living - and as travelers, we get to share in that uniquely Parisian joie de vivre.
