Storyline

Michael does part of the Italian Grand Tour, the precursor of Victorian 'mass' tourism, along Italian art cities. He starts in port city Pisa, discussing the leaning campanile. With a side-trip to Carrara, where unsurpassed marble for statues is cut, he heads for the highlight, Tuscan capital Firenze (Florence), with particular attention for the effects of its short-lived status as Italian royal capital between the Piemontese dynasty's Turin and eternal, imperial and papal Rome. Finally off to the ultimate holiday region of the grand lakes, at Lake Garda. Written by KGF Vissers
