Rick Steves’ Art of Europe
Examine Europe’s greatest masterpieces in this miniseries! Spanning prehistoric cave paintings to the Renaissance to art in our modern world today, Rick Steves’ Art of Europe takes you on a sweeping journey through culture and art. As the Ice Age glaciers melted, European civilization was born – and with it, so was European art. From the Stone Age came prehistoric art: mysterious tombs, mighty megaliths, and vivid cave paintings. Then the Egyptians and the Greeks laid the foundations of Western art – creating a world of magical gods, massive pyramids, sun-splashed temples, and ever-more-lifelike statues.

This special is a love letter to travel – an introspective love story, set in Europe and beyond, that vividly celebrates the value of exploring our world – whether as a tourist, a traveler, or a pilgrim.
