Brian Sewell's Grand Tour
I am watching an amazing series on the Grand Tour. This was a moment in time when tourist, UK tourist in particular traveled through France and down the boot of Italy. Then Brian Sewell will trace these tourist to the architecture, art, and food that returned to the UK. Some of the places he goes are behind the scenes of buildings and areas that these same tours had access that many of us don't have today. I am amazed at the beautiful places in both from the tour and from the British reflection in buildings and artifacts.
