Summary of the history of travel and tourism in France.

A condensed museum of the history of travel and tourism in France. A large selection drawn from a collection unique in France makes you 'travel', 'stroll', through the centuries until today
France has become the number one destination in the world. Who today is not a vacationer from time to time? But only in 1836 was the word tourist invented by the writer Stendhal. Previously, those who moved were warriors, crusaders, ostentatious gentlemen and rulers, merchants, pilgrims and patrician sons for their educational 'Grand Tour'. It was only after the story of a stay in Nice by the Scottish writer Tobias Smollett in 1766 that the British aristocracy began to "hibernate" there. In 1894, in his book 'La Côte d'Azur', Stéphen Liégard gave the imperishable name to this coastal strip, now known worldwide. And free time, and who does not remember the 15 days of paid vacation of 1936?
