This program introduces students to the Grand Tour—a voyage through France and Italy undertaken by young Englishmen, and eventually women, of the 17th and 18th centuries. The Grand Tour was designed to broaden the horizons of elite British youth by introducing them to continental languages and diplomacy, art and architecture, nature, culture, and geography—it was, in short, the culmination of an aristocratic education. We start in London and, following in the footsteps of the young men and women of a bygone era, we will make stops in Paris, Chamonix-Mont Blanc, and Rome. At each stage of our journey, we will retrace the literary, cultural, and artistic itinerary of the young people who took the Grand Tour centuries ago to learn more about the wide, wild world and their own privileged place within it.
