Medieval Europe, Four Great Cities of Europe

Two half-hour shows featuring:

Medieval Europe: The medieval world is one of the big draws of European Travel. Moody ruins, “tippy” towers, cobbled streets, sparkling mosaics, monasteries, castles, and cathedrals form the core of many a tourist’s dreams. In this episode we revisit some favorite spots and toss in a few new sights as we make a little sense out of a fascinating 1000 years—from the fall of Rome to the dawn of the Renaissance. We sort it all out with several short itineraries in Ireland, Austria, Germany, and France.

Four Great Cities of Europe: London, Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels. A European city bustles—it’s a hub of commerce and the arts, energy, surprise, and international flavor. Where do you start if you have just 24-hours? Here, we highlight some best choices of the urban culture in four great cities. London calls for high tea at the Athenaeum and modern art at the New Tate. Paris treats us to impressive dining, the Musee D’Orsay and the Pompidou. Rembrandt’s The Night Watch and traditional rijsttafel dinner are mandatory in Amsterdam, and in 1000 year-old-Brussels, we land in what some call “the most beautiful town square in Europe.” Europe’s great cities stay with you.
