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 now-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 on the beaches of Normandy and the nearby cemeteries to remember D-Day. For dinner, it’ll be classic Russia: a pickle plate, piroshki, and dumplings, washed down by vodka.
