    The Grand Tour

    The Grand Tour was a journey across Europe to Italy to study its classical past. It served travelers with a way to polish their tastes and acquire noble ideas and moral virtue. The Grand Tour was above all a search for adventure, inspiration and discovery. On their tour, each traveler would receive a souvenir commemorating where they had traveled.
