Have you heard of a grand tour? Maybe you just thought of the Amazon Prime show hosted by British TV legends Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond. If you enjoy watching flashy vehicles, ribald humor and running jokes like 12-year-olds would make, it is great entertainment.

On the other hand, you might have thought of the famous road trip through Italy called the Grand Tour. Made popular as a pastime for motorists in the early part of the 20th century, vacationers would pack up a week or so’s worth of clothes and necessities to sight-see around the Italian countryside. Stopping in towns big and small provided abundant opportunities for cultural exchanges between tourists and locals while also boosting economic growth.
