The Rome of the Grand Tour

The Grand Tour was a long journey through continental Europe undertaken by the rich European aristocracy starting from the 17th century and intended to perfect their knowledge with departure and arrival in the same city. It had an undefined duration and usually had Italy as its destination.

The term tourism and more generally the phenomenon of today’s tourist travel as a mass culture originate from the Grand Tour.
