PBS travel guru – and America’s premier travel writer – Rick Steves visits Burlington’s Flynn Center Monday, March 18, in a special appearance to benefit Vermont Public Television.

In this very special multi-media presentation, Rick will deliver a fun-filled talk about his travels around Europe and the remarkable commonalities he sees among different cultures. Rick encourages fellow travelers to 'get out and meet the locals' to discover how much we all have in common – and he'll offer audience members sound advice to make the most of their European travels.

Rick has been advising American travelers since 1979, and has been featured on PBS since 1991, so you know he speaks from experience. A gifted and engaging storyteller, he’ll serve up a delightful evening you’ll long remember!

In addition to the Flynn presentation, you can opt for a special “meet & greet” opportunity, as a small number of lucky audience members enjoy a private meeting with Rick after the presentation. "Meet & Greet" tickets are limited and sure to sell out fast, so reserve yours now!
