" They are the storied destinations of the world’s elite, opulent retreats that cater to every whim of the discerning traveler for a price. Hotels like New York’s Waldorf-Astoria and The Palace in St. Moritz have pampered their wealthy guests for generations. Now, the Grand Tour provides a behind-the-scenes look at these elegant resorts, opening their doors for a unique glimpse at a life of leisure previously reserved for a chosen few. From idyllic Saratoga, where the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers escaped the summer heat of New York City, to the old-world charm that made Monte Carlo a favorite destination of society figures like Picasso and J.P.Morgan, LEGENDARY RESORTS OF THE WORLD brings the Golden Age of travel to life. Through astonishing archival footage and the recollections of guests, and workers, this collection explores the history of the visionaries who built these fabled playgrounds, the guests that made them famous, and the timeless allure that draws people to them today.
