Rick Steves

Travel with Rick Steves shares travel information, experience and inspiration, and helps Americans better understand our world through travel.

Each program (artfully edited by producer Tim Tattan) mixes interviews with guest travel experts, your call-ins with questions and comments, and music. We talk about our favorite travels in Europe, as well as travel anywhere in the U.S. and the rest of the world. Along with exciting destinations, we also discuss general topics, as far flung as keeping healthy on the road, bicycling, sabbaticals, pilgrimages, sailing, fear of flying, and more.

Listeners can participate by sharing feedback about our most recently aired episodes, or by submitting a haiku. You can also be a caller on our show; sign up on our radio homepage to receive email alerts when we hold our recording sessions.
