Beginning in the mid 17th century The Grand Tour was traditionally undertaken by aristocratic families from Northern Europe and England and later adopted by wealthy Americans. It served as an educational right of passage. Italy was the primary destination because of its rich cultural treasures, cities and breathtaking landscapes. This cultural pilgrimage reached its height during the 18th century and by the 19th century, as travel became safer and more affordable for the masses, modern tourism was born.
