About Season 10:

RICK STEVES' EUROPE Season 10 Preview

Consummate traveler, host and best-selling guidebook author Rick Steves returns for Season 10 of RICK STEVES' EUROPE. The popular travel series takes viewers to some of Europe's engaging destinations, from great cities to off-the-beaten-path discoveries, in 12 all-new episodes.

Join Rick as he experiences the local culture, cuisine, and fun in several of Europe’s beautiful and exciting countries, from England and Portugal, to the Greek islands and Italy.

In Lisbon, Portugal's hilly, coastal capital city, Rick enjoys pastries hot out of the oven, and strolls the city’s back lanes and its reinvigorated waterfront. During his travels, he also listens to soulful fado music, which dates back to the 1820s.

In later episodes, Rick also travels to The Highlands of Scotland ... where legends of Bonnie Prince Charlie swirl around lonely castles. He visits the “Weeping Glen” of Glencoe, bustling Inverness, and the battlefield at Culloden.

Then he makes a pilgrimage to the spiritual capital of a major clan, and goes prehistoric at Stone Age burial grounds and Iron Age island forts.

Whether you’re an armchair traveler eager to learn, or an active traveler dreaming up new plans, Season 10 of RICK STEVES' EUROPE is the next best thing to a plane ticket.
