A visit to Greece, Turkey and Croatia highlights the ruins of Olympia and Istanbul's Grand Bazaar.
Long Description: 
In his latest pledge event, travel expert Rick Steves shares his extensive knowledge of European history and culture as he winds his way through southern Greece, Turkey and Croatia. On the Peloponnesian Peninsula, Rick time-trips through the ruins of Olympia, explores the ancient Greek capital of Mycenae and marvels at Greece's Rock of Gibraltar: the fortress town of Monemvasia. In Act Two, Rick loses his way in Istanbul's Grand Bazaar, wanders among the treasures of the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace, and cruises the churning waters of the Bosphorus. In Croatia, Rick sails the island-studded Dalmatian Coast, visits the thriving capital city of Zagreb and concludes his travels on the Istrian Peninsula's enchanting port town of Rovinj. The two-hour RICK STEVES' MEDITERRANEAN MOSAIC consists of two episodes from the fifth season, and one from the upcoming sixth season of Rick Steves' Europe, interspersed with three pledge breaks.
