Watch with Rick Steves — Romantic Europe

Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on February 8, 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.

In honor of Valentine's Day, Rick reveals his list of the "best places to kiss" in Europe. Imagine: Lake Como, Italy's honeymoon country; Santorini, where many Asian brides visit for pre-wedding portraits; the seductive art of Gustav Klimt; the French Riviera, where the bikini was invented; belle époque Paris; the most romantic château in the Loire; and Venice during Carnevale — where masks are part of the fun because what happens in Venice…stays in Venice.
