Description: This package includes:

- DVD & CD of program: A Symphonic Journey
Just as travel broadens one's perspectives, so can music. In this hour-long concert special, Rick teams up with the Cascade Symphony Orchestra on a musical tour that begins in the USA, then touches down in seven different European countries.

People of every nation have music that quickens their heartbeat and sets their patriotic spirit soaring. For each stop, Rick paints the cultural context in words, and then the orchestra plays stirring anthems — Strauss in Austria, Wagner in Germany, Smetana in the Czech Republic, Verdi in Italy, Elgar in England, Grieg in Norway, Berlioz in France — each accompanied by glorious video footage. While each piece celebrates a particular nationality, the finale, Beethoven's Ode to Joy (Europe's official national anthem), celebrates a continent whose motto is "united in diversity."

- DVD - Rick Steves Travel Skills
This DVD distills Rick Steves' 30 years of travel experience into an information-rich two-hour special. Rick dispenses practical advice on enjoying a fun, affordable and culturally broadening trip to Europe. He covers planning an itinerary, hurdling the language barrier, driving rental cars and catching trains, avoiding scams, eating well, sleeping smart, staying safe and revealing everything viewers need to know to turn their travel dreams into reality.
