Join European travel expert Rick Steves for a vivid high-destination adventure across the Mediterranean, with colorful stops in Istanbul, Greece's Peloponnese Peninsula, and - in an exciting new episode rushed to completion just for this special - Croatia's Dalmatian Coast.
In this two-hour, public television travel special, Steves will first explore the fascinating, multilayered city of Istanbul. He'll munch his way through the famously fragrant Spice Market, trace the fall of Byzantium and the rise of Islam, delve into the Hagia Sophia, and make friends over backgammon in a local teahouse.
In Greece's Peloponnese, the pulse of this country's cultural heart, Steves will enjoy the charming old port town of Nafplio, hop, skip and jump through the ruins of the Olympics, relax in the idyllic beach town of Kardymli and marvel at Greece's Rock of Gibraltar: the fortress town of Monemvasia.
