Rick Steves’ Heart of Italy


In RICK STEVES' HEART OF ITALY, Rick delves deep into the Italian heartland - the place where la dolce vita is a way of life. Starting in Umbria, he connects with rustic, traditional culture: sleeping at an agriturismo (a farmhouse inn), seeing how prosciutto and pecorino cheese are made (and eaten), and hiking down into ancient and fragrant wine cellars. Then he tours Assisi, with its inspirational story of St. Francis, its stop-and-smell-God's-roses spirituality, its delicate Giotto masterpieces, and its awe-inspiring basilica. In Siena, Rick enjoys a front-row seat at its wild horse race - the venerable Palio - and marvels at cultural treasures from the city's glory days, when it rivaled Florence for dominance in Tuscany. He finishes with the ultimate Riviera getaway: the Cinque Terre, where he gets to know each of the "five lands" - from the dramatic, vineyard-surrounded Vernazza to hardscrabble Riomaggiore, to the pint-sized resort of Monterosso. Fishing for anchovies, sipping wine out of rustic barrels, bringing flowers to hilltop cemeteries, and savoring twinkling Mediterranean vistas, Rick visits his favorite stretch of Mediterranean coastline. From hill towns to harbors, and from vino rosso to Giotto, RICK STEVES' HEART OF ITALY savors the good life in the Italian heartland.

Rick Steves' Tasty Europe


In RICK STEVES' TASTY EUROPE, travel expert and globetrotter Rick Steves eats his merry way through Europe. One delightful taste at a time, he shows how food is a prime ingredient in what defines cultures all across the Continent. Join Rick as he slurps seasonal raw herring in Holland and then savors a farm-to-table country feast with a noble family in Tuscany. Rick and his team then drink some local firewater during the salad course in Bulgaria, and enjoy the elegant simplicity of steak tartare and foie gras in the garden of a French chateau. From dining al fresco in Rome, to joining the locals on a Madrid pub crawl, to learning the secrets of a wine lover's enoteca in Verona, Rick learns that slowing down to truly appreciate what you eat is an essential part of any great travel experience. With this special, the welcomes are warm, the kitchens are jammin' and the tables are set .. and you are an honored guest. Sure, there are a lot of calories - but they're far from empty, and you'll never forget this progressive feast.
