Airs Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. on KPBS TV
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 practical advice for taking a fun, affordable and culturally broadening trip to Europe.
Part one of three on the Eternal City, this episode resurrects the rubble and brings back to life the capital of the ancient world. Focusing on the grandeur of classical Rome, we marvel at the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the empire's exquisite art.
Then we go offbeat by bicycle to see the Appian Way and marvels of Roman engineering.
