In this second of two episodes on Europe’s greatest festivals, we’ll dance with Spaniards at Sevilla’s April Fair, celebrate Bastille Day in Paris, run with the bulls at Pamplona, and hoist a frothy stein at Munich’s Oktoberfest.

In this first of two episodes on Europe’s greatest festivals, we’ll cheer with the masses at Siena’s crazy Palio horse race, toss a caber at a Scottish Highland Games, don a mask for Carnevale in Venice, and celebrate Easter in Greece. Dropping in on some of the Continent’s top parties, we discover that each one is a celebration of traditional culture, and all of them are full of opportunities to sing and dance, feast on traditional food, and party with locals.

A new Italian family takes up residence in Corfu, spiriting Spiros away from a jealous Louisa. They sure seem to have left Italy in a hurry…and Lousia is determined to find out why.

 

 

RICK STEVES’ EUROPE
Lisbon

 

Lisbon, built with the riches of Portugal’s New World discoveries, has a rustic charm. We’ll remember great navigators, eat lots of cod, enjoy pastries hot out of the oven, stroll the city’s back lanes and its reinvigorated waterfront, marvel at an exquisite church built with spice taxes, and enjoy some soulful fado music. Then we’ll side-trip to Sintra to explore the fanciful castles of Portuguese royalty and climb hilltop ramparts with grand views.

RICK STEVES’ EUROPE
Portugal’s Heartland

 

Leaving Lisbon for the countryside, we eat barnacles in a salty old fishing town, march with pilgrims on the anniversary of a miracle, ponder the local Romeo and Juliet, sample university life, and rummage through the riches of Portugal’s Golden Age.
