Welcome to the new ricksteves.com!

First off, relax. We have the same great Rick Steves content as always. Only now (thanks to input from our users and tech wizards) you'll find the travel info you want — and relevant extras — far more easily!

Here are the highlights . . .


More of Europe:

We've added lots of Rick's guidebook content to the site, including recommended sights, itineraries, tips and more. "Explore Europe" takes you to places, "Travel Tips" takes you to skills and advice.


Improved Search

It's all new, with better results and new filtering tools to help you narrow or widen your search. Any time you're not sure how to navigate to something, just type it in the search box. It's easy and fun.


Retooled Forums:

We've expanded our travel forums (formerly the Travelers Helpline and Graffiti Wall) to make it even easier to find answers and share your experiences. We now offer forums for each country, plus travel tips and restaurant/hotel reviews.


Maximized for Mobile:

Our new site is so smart, it automatically re-configures our content to fit any desktop, tablet or phone with simplified side navigation, tantalizing stacking tiles, and easy-to-tap links, Now ricksteves.com is travel-friendly in every way!
