Spring 2014: The Grand Tour

The Grand Tour was the traditional trip undertaken as an educational rite of passage by mainly upper-class British young men. They began in Dover, crossing the English Channel to France, travelling to Paris, then Switzerland (Geneva or Lausanne), and into northern Italy, where Venice was considered the epitome of Italian culture. From there, the travellers went to Florence and Rome, perhaps to Munich or Heidelberg, then to the Netherlands, before returning across the Channel to England. Our mystery tour will begin instead in Bath and take a side trip to Stockholm, but then we’ll visit Paris, Venice and Amsterdam just as they did.
