It’s Wednesday (June 24) and tonight doesn’t sound good weather-wise in the Chicago area, so I’m going to get away from it all with WYCC-TV of Chicago’s lineup of travel programs that run every Wednesday beginning at 8 p.m. CDT. The following is tonight’s lineup.

8 p.m. — “Rick Steves’ Europe” — It’s a 2001 program called “The Best of Sicily.” The highlights include fishing for anchovies off Cefalu, a visit to Palermo, viewing the mosaics of Monreale and seeing the ruins of Segesta.

8:30 — “Joseph Rosendo’s Travelscope” — See the wonders of the Swiss resort of St. Moritz.

9 — “Globe Trekker” — The season 10 opener pays a visit to Antarctica. There’s kayaking and penguin watching in Paradise Harbor, observing the work of Ukrainian biologists in Port Lockrov and using the Drake Passage to get to South America.
