In a thrilling two-hour special designed to stoke viewers' travel dreams, Rick Steves peeks into the corners of Europe and reveals his favorite off-the-beaten path destinations - unheralded sights relatively unknown to most American tourists. This two-hour special, broken into four parts, revolves around an exciting medley of segments taken from recent seasons of Rick Steves' Europe, plus a never-before-seen foray to Rick's favorite Italian hill town. Rick begins by visiting the quaint Danish isle of Aerø, the romantic, traffic-free Greek island of Hydra and the thriving Moroccan port of Tangier. Then, Rick experiences a trio of Eastern European gems: the enchanting castle town of Ceský Krumlov in the Czech Republic, Croatia's Plitvice Lakes National Park and battle-scarred Mostar in Bosnia. Next, Rick tours the scenic harbors of San Sebastian, Spain's proud Basque capital, and the delightfully romantic town of Hallstatt, high in Austria's Alps. Finally, Rick embarks on excursions to lesser-known Italian hill towns. He takes in the cliff-hanging vistas of Civita, tastes the "sweet life" in vibrant (and unspoiled) Volterra and tours the well-preserved fortress city of Lucca, near Pisa.
