About the Book

Now in full-color, a witty and engaging look at Europe's history and art, from America's European travel guru. Rick Steves' Europe 101 helps you make the most of your sightseeing. A fun but informative guide, this "professor in your pocket" features:

• Chronologically organized chapters—from the pyramids to Picasso—that explain the forces behind Europe's most important cultural and artistic periods
• Handy lists of sights that allow you to link your newly acquired knowledge with the specific paintings, sculptures, and buildings you'll see on your trip
• A humorous, readable style that is a joy to read compared with the history textbooks you slept on in school
• Timelines, maps, drawings, and photos that illustrate Europe's story and round out your education
