Merry Christmas! To celebrate the season, I'm sharing clips, extras and behind-the-scenes notes from Rick Steves' European Christmas.
Leaving the tranquility of the English countryside behind, London offers Christmas fun fit for a queen and streets twinkling with joy.
This is the only time we've ever filmed with a sound technician. We knew music is a big part of Christmas, we'd be privileged to film at wonderful concerts throughout Europe, and we wanted to get the music just right. Our sound guys did a marvelous job, and music was a big part of the program (even giving us the bonus of a great Christmas CD as a souvenir).
You can watch the full hour-long Rick Steves' European Christmas for free anytime on our website.
