Ancient International Tourism

Posted on November 15, 2015 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Is it true that tourism existed in ancient times? I was in Italy and the guide said this was an ancient tradition.
ANSWER: International Tourism was actually formally born because Augustus (27BC-14AD) had wiped the Mediterranean clean of pirates making travel possible other than trade. The roads and highways were safe for travel and there was a viable hotel (inn) industry which emerged as well as tour guides. People have always been fascinated by the ancient world’s wonders which were old to them as well like Egypt. Romans were the tourists exploring of Italy, Greece, Asia Minor (now Turkey), and Egypt. This is most likely the earliest tourist industry to be international. Local tourism existed even before the Romans.
