In the past “Grand Tour” was the name of the journey that the European noblemen and rich bourgeois took to Italy, to discover its ancient beauty and its incomparable richness of arts and culture. It was more than a simple tour or a passing fashion, it became a fundamental moment in the cultural training of every cultivated European.
Today The Grand Tour by Alliance Travel Service aims at promoting the knowledge of the Italian naturalistic and cultural heritage in the mood of the travellers of that age.
To this end, we put at your disposal highly trained guides that will make you discover in an involving way the artistic beauties of our country in a new light. Besides, they will help you discover the lesser known treasures usually ignored by mass tourism. We organize theme itineraries – “tailored” on demand -, private guided tours to monuments and museums, attendance to traditional events, and much more.
“There is certainly no place in the world where a man may travel with greater Pleasure and Advantage than in Italy. One finds something more particular in the face of the country and more astonishing in the works of nature, than can be met with any other part of Europe. It is the great school of Music and Painting, and contains in it all the noblest Productions of Statuary and Architecture, both Ancient and Modern ….There is scarce any part of the Nation that is not Famous in History, nor so much as a Mountain or River that has not been the scene of some extraordinary Action.”
Joseph Addison, 1745
