Publisher's Summary

Even if the act of travel has been transformed beyond recognition in a mere decade or two, how much has actually changed in our favorite destinations in the past two hundred years? Listeners are invited to compare their impressions with those of veteran travelers and literary legends: Charles Dickens on Rome; Mark Twain on Paris and Versailles; and Washington Irving on Stratford On Avon. Add to this mix elegiac verse by Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti and here is an experience almost as good as being there, without the headaches of the journey.
