NEXT 12th November Richard Henderson of Historica Tours will tell us about the Grand Tour and Rome in the 18th Century.
The rich and aristocratic young gentlemen from Britain and other North European countries headed south with their tutors for education, hedonism and to load up with the art of ancient and modern Rome for their mansions. They found a museum city, a  well established art (and fakes) market as well as brothels and other delights.
