Andy Steves
Founder & Chief Backpacker, WSA Europe

Andy Steves has spent the better part of his adult life in Europe helping young Americans travel more intentionally and efficiently. After growing up traveling with his guidebook-writing father, Rick Steves, Andy had already led tours and updated guidebooks by the time he studied abroad in Rome in 2008. Equipped not only with the practical insights, but the desire to bridge cultural gaps, Andy found his calling in life to share this expertise with friends and fellow students while abroad. He turned this passion into an award-winning tour company, Weekend Student Adventures (WSA Travel), and has toured thousands of young Americans around Europe, connecting them with local culture, people and experiences.

Studying abroad and traveling for extended periods of time through Europe revealed a different side of Europe, and one that Andy is excited to share in this guidebook. Crafted with an attention to detail, and real-life understanding of priorities, time and trip style, this book comprises all you need to know for city hopping across Europe.

Andy's first book, Andy Steves' Europe: City-Hopping on a Budget, comprises all the tips and tried and trued itineraries developed for budget backpackers on the classic circuit through Europe.
