Description
 
Patrick Delaforce. Before modern transport made travel accessible, the “Grand Tour” was the peak of intellectual & artistic exploration. From the middle of the 16th cent. to the end of the 19th cent., inquisitive travelers made their way round the cultural circuit. This guide takes you through France, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland & Austria, visiting the classic cities in each. The spirit of each place is captured in the comments & quotes of visitors of the past -- & those same cities are carefully described for today’s visitor. Cultural activities, architectural sights, musical festivals, as well as the best restaurants & hotels that still exist, are all described.  Maps.
