Travel lovers have spent the last year or so dreaming of where they’ll go post-COVID. In this unforgettable journey, Rick Steves shares vivid visits to some European favorites – off-beat, romantic, or just good for the soul – that he’d love to visit when we can travel again.

Stow-away with Rick as he explores the wonders and savors the joys of a montage of travel delights: Sicily, so tasty and historic; Mykonos, for a little Aegean romance; Porto, in the rustic and untouristed north of Portugal; the Cotswolds, for the best of the English countryside; Tuscany, Italy’s la dolce vita country; and Romania, with perhaps the most vivid traditional folk life in Europe. It’s a far-flung adventure that comes with remote beaches, gourmet food, and an unforgettable English hike; Rick even drops in on an eccentric lord and a Tuscan pig farm!

This pledge special, a celebration of the value of public television, is sure to stoke both your travel dreams and your appreciation of public television as we prepare to emerge from this pandemic.

Watch Rick Steves Europe Awaits on WITF Monday June 7 at 8pm, Saturday June 12 at 4pm and Sunday June 13 at 10pm. The program is also available for WITF Passport members to view on-demand via the PBS Video app.
