Product Description

Nothing comes close to the magic of cruising and touring Europe with Burt Wolf! Disc 1: The Rhine and The Danube The Rhine is one of the world s great rivers, starting in the Swiss Alps and dumping into the North Sea. Join Burt as he takes a cruise along the Rhine from Amsterdam to Basel. The Danube River is the second longest river in Europe after the Volga. Burt sets sail on this magical river as he leaves from Budapest and stops along the way in Bratislava, Vienna, Durnstein, Grein, Linz and Passau. Disc 2: France Provence and the French Riviera are filled with warm weather, intense sunlight and magnificent scenery. The best way to see the region is on a cruise on the Rhone River, and Burt shows you all the stops on his tour from Tournon to Nice. No trip to France would be complete without a visit to Paris, and Burt travels down the Seine and catches all the sights from the Eiffel Tower to the Musee D Orsay. Disc 3: Italy Rome is all about layers layers that could easily stand on their own, and yet being together in the same pot has made the entire dish more interesting. Burt travels throughout Rome hitting all the ancient Roman sites and finding some of the best dishes and culture in the world. About 3,000 years ago, a people known as Etruscans migrated from Eastern Europe to central Italy and set up a federation of 12 city-states. Today it is known as Tuscany and its people share with Burt the wine, food and traditions of their land. Milan has been an important city for well over 2,000 years. Today, Milan is an industrial powerhouse, and the financial and commercial enter of Italy. Disc 4: Holland & Belgium For thousands of years the best way to get around Europe was on a river boat. As a result many of the great cities of Europe were built on the banks of rivers. Burt travels to many of Europe's grandest cities in Holland and Belgium including Amsterdam, Schoonhoven, Dordrecht, Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent and Bruges. Disc 5: Spain, Switzerland & Austria Everyday for the past 1200 years pilgrims who have been walking the ancient road to the city of Santiago de Compostela arrive and celebrate the completion of their journey. Explore this amazing place and all its wondrous history. Christmas is celebrated in cities through the world, but what takes place in the Austrian capital of Vienna is unique. Join Burt as he shows you the magic of Vienna at Christmas. The Swiss Alps were born about 100 million years ago when Europe and Africa collided. Today, Burt shows you why Switzerland is an amazing place of mountainous beauty and charming culture. Disc 6: Bonus Disc: Great Hotels & Shopping Burt takes you behind the scenes of the most wondrous and grand hotels in the world, and take you on exclusive trips to the most fabulous shopping destinations in the world.

I'm not great at writing professional sounding reviews, but I did want to take a moment to share my opinion of this dvd set. I really enjoy Burt Wolf's style. He is respectful and knowledgable, and manages to keep things fun at the same time. I purchased this dvd set at the same time as a Rudy Maxa set, and I enjoy Burt Wolf much more! I'm pretty much done with the Rudy Maxa set.

In this dvd set, Burt Wolf takes you to a variety of places all over Europe. He shares historical details throughout each episode and also explores achitecture, culture, art, food and more. I especially enjoy watching this in the winter months as it is warm and inviting, and gives you the sense that you are traveling to beautiful places. It leaves me wanting to find more of his programs!

My family and I enjoyed this set of travel videos very much. The quality of photography was good, the narratives excellent. We didn't want them to end.

Burt Wolf gives a different perspective on traveling & we enjoyed this very much. What we did not enjoy was the cruise DVD's. You really do not get to see much of the countries he is visiting. It is more about the cruise ship & shows how limited you are at what you can expect to see when traveling by ship through Europe.

While the competition between travel shows is heating up -- there's Rick Steves, Rudy Maxa, and others -- Burt Wolf consistently impresses. The shows are so good that even after you go European cities he visits, you'll still enjoy the shows. Just like other major travel show hosts, he visits people and places that few regular tourist will ever meet or experience.

The episodes have a delightful mix of city and country sites, history, dining, interviews, and clever jokes. These videos and the ongoing broadcasts about Burt Wolf's American tourism and food stories make for great viewing. This box set counts as one of my best Amazon purchases.

I would highly recommend these travel DVDs to any armchair traveler interested in Europe. Burt Wolf tells you the history of the region with beautiful scenery. He has a good sense of humor which comes across in each DVD.

These are great CDs--and what a fantastic price! It gives another look other than Rick Steve--who is also very good. It's just so helpful to actually SEE the places you are going, rather than just reasing about them.
