Celebrate a European Easter

Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on March 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.

On the day after Palm Sunday, join Rick as he kicks off Holy Week with his one-hour TV special, "Rick Steves' European Easter" — and takes you behind the scenes to Spain, Slovenia, Switzerland, Greece, Italy, and Vatican City for celebrations spanning the entire Easter season. We'll start with the crazy Carnival festivities leading up to Europe's Mardi Gras — and then, after 40 days of Lent, drop in on more dramatic rituals, colorful feasts, and sacred traditions, from the pulsating processions of Palm Sunday in Sevilla through the emotion-filled days of Holy Week, to the explosion of Resurrection joy on Easter Sunday.
