Made up of condensed versions of the most popular chapters from his individual country guidebooks, Rick’s “greatest hits” guide is perfect for the whirlwind Europe trip.

In Rick Steves’ Best of Europe, you’ll find in-depth Rick-tested information on trip planning, hotels, restaurants, tourist offices and transportation plus easy-to-follow maps. It covers all the best sights (but does not include the illustrated city walks and museum tours found in Rick’s city guidebooks). The places covered by this book include…

  • Austria: Vienna, Salzburg, Hallstatt and the Salzkammergut Lake District
  • Belgium: Bruges
  • France: Paris, Provence, Nice on the French Riviera
  • Germany: Bavaria and Tirol (Austria), Rothenburg, Rhine Valley, Berlin
  • Great Britain: London
  • Italy: Rome, Venice, Florence, The Cinque Terre
  • Netherlands: Amsterdam, Haarlem
  • Spain: Barcelona
  • Switzerland: Gimmelwald and the Berner Oberland
  • It Works: The Vancouver Sun says, “Rick Steves’ Best of Europe is filled with good, practical advice for independent travelers who don’t want to miss the must-sees, but also hope to get away from the tourist hordes now and then.”
