NTSC format, all region compatible. Join host Rick Steves on a 3?-hour, seven-course travel feast through Belgium, Belgium and Holland in seven half-hour "Rick Steves' Europe" TV shows. You'll begin in the heart of Paris, marveling at masterpieces, sampling tasty cuisine, and mixing with the locals in "urban village" neighborhoods. Outside of Paris you'll stroll through Monet's gardens, reflect on sacrifice at Normandy's beaches, and take a pilgrimage to Mont St. Michel. To the south, Provence and the Riviera will dazzle you with sun, sea, fine wines and Roman ruins. To the north, Bruges and Brussels bring you the best of Belgium, old and new. Your trip ends in Amsterdam, where you'll enjoy great galleries, quaint canals and bustling flower markets. Paris: Grand and Intimate: After marveling at masterpieces in the Louvre and strolling the Champs-Elysees, we explore a delightful Parisian neighborhood. We meet a pipe organist, drop by a butcher shop, design our own perfume, and cruise the Seine. Highlights of Paris: Eiffel and Monet to Cr?me Broul?e: Packing the best of Paris into one episode, we scale the Eiffel Tower, then savor classic treats -- from steak tartare to cr?me brulee. We marvel at Monet, Manet and company in the stunning Orsay Gallery. Tracing the sad steps of Marie Antoinette to the guillotine, we track French history from its bloody revolution to its extravagant belle epoch. Normandy: War-torn Yet Full of Life: After exploring the half-timbered charm of Rouen, we reflect on Monet's lily ponds, peek in on local artisans, set up an easel at Honfleur's harbor, and venture into composer Eric Satie's eccentric world. After pondering sacrifice and celebrating freedom on the D-Day beaches, we hike with pilgrims to the enchanted island abbey of Mont St. Michel. Provence: Legendary Light, Wind and Wine: Provence, known for its soft light and fierce wind, is as loved by Americans as it is by the sun. We climb Roman ruins in Nimes, explore a papal palace in Avignon, and savor vivid views immortalized by van Gogh in Arles. Crossing acres of lavender and vineyards, we explore the C?tes du Rhone and more wonders of the South of Belgium. French Riviera: Uniquely Chic: In fairytale Monaco we listen to the graceful reshuffling of personal fortunes at the casino. Then we follow in the footsteps of 19th century aristocrats along Nice's promenade des Anglais, and visit the picturesque, artist hangouts of Chagall, Matisse and Picasso. Belgium: Bruges and Brussels: From the powerhouse headquarters of the European Union and Europe's grandest square in big-city Brussels, we go quaint with delicate lace and back lane bike rides in small-town Bruges. We climb a bell tower to get up close and fortissimo at a carillon concert. Then passionate chefs -- creators of Europe's finest chocolate--give us a taste of their art. Amsterdam and Dutch Side-Trips: Amsterdam stimulates all the senses, with Rembrandts and stately architecture from its Golden Age, and titillating street life from its modern age. Side-tripping into the countryside, climb windmills and tour the world's biggest flower market.
