  • 12:00 am
    Rick Steves' Europe [#311H] Budapest: The Best of Hungary Budapest, once Vienna's partner in ruling the Austro-Hungarian empire, feels like the capital of Eastern Europe. It's actually two cities- busy Pest and noble Buda-straddling the Danube and laced together by mighty bridges. Capitalism has taken hold with gusto as shopping boulevards thrive and stone Lenins and cast iron Stalins litter a theme park at the edge of town. Today Gypsy orchestras feature smoking violins, venerable mineral baths are the rage, and 19th century coffeehouses enjoy a renaissance. duration 27:46   STEREO TVG

    Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope [#610H] Ontario, Canada's Niagara Peninsula - Toronto And Beyond On his visit to the Canadian province of Ontario, Joseph sets out to prove there's more to the Niagara Peninsula region than world-famous Niagara Falls. To prove his point, he begins his wandering in Toronto, Canada's largest and most cosmopolitan city. He finds that besides being a cultural Mecca for art, theater, film, music, fine dining, as well as one of the greenest cities in North America, it is one of the world's most multicultural cities. Italian, Irish, Indian, Greek, Chinese, Vietnamese -- the ethnic diversity matches the seemingly never-ending list of world-class attractions and activities. From gentle bicycling along Lake Ontario's shore to kayaking to the Toronto Islands or hanging 116 stories above the ground from the edge of the CN Tower, Joseph finds out there's never a dull moment in this young, vibrant and ever-evolving town. And, if that isn't enough, a day excursion to the Niagara Peninsula wine region and the quaint town of Niagara-On-The-Lake keeps Joseph sippin', nibblin', pickin' and hoppin' through the more than 60 wineries that have sprouted up in one of Canada's most scenic regions, at one time described by Winston Churchill as, "the prettiest Sunday drive in North America." During this episode Joseph and his viewers are truly on a movable feast for all the senses. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding.
