Monday Night Travel: Deathly Europe: Bones and Cemeteries 26:23

Published by: Gabe (Rick Steves' Europe)

Join Rick on a tour of some of Europe's many poignant postmortem sights. Paris' famous Père Lachaise Cemetery is the final resting place of many VIPs. In Palermo's Capuchin Crypt, the bones of monks are neatly stacked and displayed as a reminder of our own mortality. In France's Beaune, we'll ogle gorgeous paintings designed to comfort patients in a charity hospital. In Leipzig, Germany, the gigantic Monument to the Battle of the Nations commemorates a largely forgotten Napoleonic fight. And in Turkey's Cappadocia, entire underground cities sprawl underfoot. We'll ponder Europe's most fascinating Jewish quarter in Prague and finish at the well-preserved ruins of Pompeii.
