ABOUT GRAND TOUR The Grand Tour was the traditional trip of Europe undertaken by mainly upper-class European young men of means. It served as an educational rite of passage. The primary value of he Grand Tour lay in the exposure both to the cultural legacy of classical antiquity and the Renaissance, and to the aristocratic and fashionably polite society of the European continent. In addition, it provided the only opportunity to view specific works of art and possibly the only chance to hear certain music. A Grand Tour could last from several monthes to several years.
