TV worth watching. The classiest and most informative travel show on the air.

About this tv show


Rick Steves' Europe is a television show hosted by American author and historian Rick Steve about European travel. Steves advocates independent travel. His books, radio and television shows deal with travel mainly, though not exclusively, in Europe, and are directed at an American audience. As host, writer and producer of the popular and long running Oregon Public Broadcasting television series Rick Steves' Europe, and through his travel books, he encourages Americans to become what he calls "temporary locals." He encourages his readers and viewers to discover not only major cities, but also cozy villages away from popular tourist routes.

Steves' relationship with public television began with his first series, Travels in Europe with Rick Steves. Since then, he has become one of public television's top pledge drive hosts, raising millions of dollars annually for stations across the U.S. Steves writes and co-produces his television programs through his company, Back Door Productions. Steves' television series, guidebooks, and his company's European escorted bus tours attract fans known as "Rickniks". Steves lives in his hometown of Edmonds, Washington with his wife Anne. They've been married and traveling together for 25 years, along with their two children, Andy and Jackie, who attend out-of-state universities.
