For centuries, part of being well-heeled meant traveling through Western Civilization on a trip known as The Grand European Tour as a young adult. These long, sometimes multi-year travels were meant to hone art appreciation and increase understanding of the ancient world.

This winter, we’ll embark on our own virtual Grand Tour. From the comfort of your armchair, we’ll discuss the historic context of the Grand European Tour, why it still resonates with us today (and to a certain extent, still exists) and use modern literature to “visit” some of the Tour’s most enduring destinations.

Encouraged Reading: March 24: Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
