The most popular destination on the Grand Tour was Paris, chiefly for its ease of getting there as the crossing was fast from Dover to Calais and the roads to Paris were good.
Someone of lesser means may opt for lodging in a habitable attic Garrett, a small living space at the top of one’s house, often with sloping ceilings.
There he might find faded florals, a rooftop attic view and of course, French accoutrements. Must-see destinations included The Arc de Triomphe, built by Napoleon in 1806 to commemorate a military victory, the iconic art institution that is the Louvre, the cathedral of Notre Dame and the magnificent palace of Versailles.
