Video: European Passion Plays

In honor of Holy week, I’m sharing daily clips from Rick Steves’ European Easter, my one-hour public television special that’s airing now nationwide (check your local listings) and streaming online.

On Good Friday, we attended two of Europe’s most poignant passion plays (re-enactments of the Crucifixion, dating back to the Middle Ages) in Škofja Loka, Slovenia, and in Cantiano, Italy — and joined hooded penitents on their Good Friday processions through Gubbio, Italy.
