February 6: Italy for Food Lovers with Rick Steves and Fred Plotkin

6:00 p.m. PT / 9:00 p.m. ET | REGISTER

Join Rick and Fred Plotkin, author of Italy for the Gourmet Traveler, for a celebration of Italian culinary delights as they debut their new book, Italy for Food Lovers. Rick loves Italian cuisine, so when he had the opportunity to collaborate with Fred, the answer was a delicious yes!

February 13: Lisbon and the Algarve with Cristina Duarte

6:00 p.m. PT / 9:00 p.m. ET | REGISTER

Once famous for great navigators departing for New World riches, today's southern Portugal is a treasure chest of travel thrills. Tour guide extraordinaire Cristina Duarte returns to Monday Night Travel to give us a tour of her hometown of Lisbon, a rustic city where vintage trolleys shiver up hills, wistful fado singers recall salty sailors, and locals stroll mosaic sidewalks. From Lisbon, we head south to Portugal's warm and beachy Algarve region to arm wrestle octopuses in the sleepy fishing village of Salema and explore the windswept Land's End of Europe.

February 20: Walking in Britain and Ireland with Cassandra Overby

A delightful region with stunning natural beauty, the British Isles offer abundant walking paths to those looking to spend time outdoors. Together alongside intrepid guide Cassandra Overby, we trek through nature's green playground, the Lake District, and explore the stunning mystique of the Scottish Highlands on the West Highland Way. As we walk, Cassandra shares some savvy tips for exploring Europe on foot. Make sure to pack some cheese and other trailside snacks to eat along the way!
