Rick Steves

Rick Steves advocates smart, independent travel. As host, writer and producer of the popular series Rick Steves' Europe, and best-selling author of more than 50 European travel books, he encourages Americans to delve deep into travel and become "temporary locals."




#
In his latest travelogue, Rick Steves journeys to Iran in the hopes of getting to know this ancient country - a leader in its corner of the world for 2,500 years - and to better understand the 70 million people living there. Shot in Tehran, Shiraz, Esfahan, Persepolis and villages in between, RICK STEVES' IRAN details the country's rich artistic and cultural heritage. Rick visits the splendid monuments from Iran's rich and glorious past, discusses the 20th-century story of this perplexing nation and explores Iran's bustling cities, historic capital and countryside villages. The special vividly captures today's Persian culture: from Friday prayer in a leading mosque to challenges confronting Iran's youth, from anti-American murals to the warmth and hospitality of a family dinner, and from the tranquility of rural life to the frenzied traffic of modern Tehran.
