In this hour-long travel special, Rick Steves explores the "Eternal City" of Rome, a grand and ancient metropolis rich with exquisite art, vibrant culture and centuries of history. In RICK STEVES SPECIAL: ROME, ETERNALLY ENGAGING, airing Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 3 p.m. on WXXI-TV, Rick traces the rise and fall of classical Rome, meanders through the heart of Bernini’s Baroque Rome and makes a pilgrimage to the Vatican. Then, he uncovers the charms of hidden neighborhoods filled with character and energy, enjoys a Roman feast, and mixes and mingles with the locals during an early-evening stroll through the city’s romantic nightspots.
