Exploring Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries

During the 17th and 18th centuries, it was customary for young European men of high social standing and independent financial means to undertake the Grand Tour, a traditional trip through Europe that served as an educational rite of passage.

Much of Europe looked very different 300 years ago. But by retracing a typical route that would have been followed by a British aristocrat and comparing destinations then with those of today, you get a good idea of the journey he took and the places he visited.
