Tour du Mont Blanc, Italy, and Athens: Rick’s Fall 2021 Trip Report

Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on November 29, 2021. Experience the fun, conviviality, intimacy, and spontaneity of joining Rick in his living room as he shares his personal, inspirational, and sometimes hilarious behind-the-scenes commentary.

After 20 months of no international travel, Rick enjoyed two trips to Europe earlier this fall — and on this special edition of Monday Night Travel, he shares his trip report. Kicking things off with a six-day, 60-mile hike around Mont Blanc, he tells us about the gear, blisters, exhaustion, summits — and why he loved every mile of Europe's grandest long-distance hike. Then, he reports on the guide mentoring tour he led through Rome, Volterra, the Cinque Terre, and Florence, teaching his newest guides what it takes to be a Rick Steves tour guide. Finally, he reports on 12 days with his crew in Florence, Rome, and Athens, filming a new six-hour European art series. Don't miss this special opportunity to stow away with Rick and get a peek into his work. Happy travels!
