Glasgow and Scottish Passions

RICK STEVES’ EUROPE: Glascow and Scottish Passions

 

Glasgow, once an industrial powerhouse, offers a fun look at Scotland’s vibrantly gritty urban side — full of edgy street art, trendy dining, and the striking architecture of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Leaving town, we’ll tap into Scottish passions as we tour historic Stirling Castle and nearby battlefields, sample a dram at the land’s most beloved distilleries on the Speyside Whisky Trail, watch a sheepdog demonstration, and struggle to lift the Manhood Stone at a Highland Games.

Scotland’s Islands

RICK STEVES’ EUROPE: Scotland’s Islands

 

We’ll begin on the tranquil Isle of Iona, where Christianity first reached the shores of Scotland. Then we’ll visit another of the Inner Hebrides, road-tripping across the Isle of Skye, where we’ll explore Iron Age forts, peat fields, a venerable distillery, thatched crofter huts, and the dramatic Trotternish Peninsula. Finally, we’ll sail to Orkney — more Nordic than Celtic — with its stony remnants of a thriving Iron Age civilization and evocative reminders of the 20th-century wartime harbor at Scapa Flow.

RICK STEVES’ EUROPE: Scotland’s Highlands

 

In Scotland, legends of Bonnie Prince Charlie swirl with pipers and kilts around crumbling castles. We remember Highland massacres in Glencoe, and try tossing a caber (log) at a Scottish clan gathering in Culloden. We play hide-and-seek with the Loch Ness Monster, tour a whisky distillery in Oban, and take a ferry to sacred Iona.

Host Paulino Duran leaves the beauty of Tuscany behind as he picks up his journey along the “Yellow Roads,” the back roads of Italy to open this episode with a private performance at Posta de Donini Hotel. Then he drives to the capital of Umbria, the city of Perugia, the ancient banking capital in the high-walled city. From Perugia he heads to a private lunch in the middle of the vineyards in Lungarotti and enjoys a conversation with friends around fantastic wines. Leaving the wines behind, he visits the quaint town of Orvieto, with its magnificent Duomo, and lunch with his new friends at Franco’s restaurant. From Orvieto he travels to Rome, where he spends time at the Duomo and The Trevi Fountain, along with a famous city expert. His journey ends at the Vatican with a private tour of the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and a dinner on the lawns of the Vatican.

RICK STEVES' SPECIAL: European Festivals

 

In this one-hour special, it’s party time in Europe. In addition to all its epic history and high culture, Europe also knows how to celebrate — and it does so with amazing gusto. Joining Rick, we drop in on the Continent’s top 10 festivals, each one rich with tradition, great food, and fun with the locals. We run with the bulls at Pamplona, don a mask in Venice for Carnevale, dance with Spaniards at the April Fair, cheer on the horses at Siena’s Palio, hoist a frothy stein at Munich’s Oktoberfest, toss a caber at a Scottish Highland Games, and join European families for their traditional Easter and Christmas celebrations. No museums or galleries…just Europe at play. Filmed on location across Europe, this promises to be a very entertaining hour.
