In the 18th Century well-bred English gentlemen would undertake a Grand Tour of the Continent for refinement - as well as for drinking, gambling and sexual adventures - before assuming their place in society. Now, Brian Sewell follows in the footsteps of those young aristocrats through Italy, exploring the art and architecture, manners and mores that shaped European civilisation. His journey takes him through Rome, Florence, Venice, Naples, Siena and Milan, with plenty of stops along the way. More than a mere travelogue, this fascinating series showcases the country's dazzling cathedrals, palazzos, paintings and sculptures while also giving insight into the travels and travails of tourists past.
