Over 220 years ago Johann Wolfgang von Goethe undertook a nearly two-years long and fascinating journey to Italy, a destination dreamed for a long time by the great German writer. During his journey from Alps to Sicily Goethe reflected on landscape, geology and morphology of "Il Bel Paese", sometimes providing detailed descriptions and acute observations concerning the great and enduring laws by which the earth and all within it are governed. In the present chapter an attempt is made to reproduce Goethe’s ante litteram geotourism itinerary through Italy, which is considered one of the most attractive tourist destination worldwide thanks to its rich cultural and natural heritage and the outstanding aesthetic qualities of its complex landscape.

Abstract

Over 220 years ago Johann Wolfgang von Goethe undertook a nearly two-years long and fascinating journey to Italy, a destination dreamed for a long time by the great German writer. During his journey from Alps to Sicily Goethe reflected on landscape, geology and morphology of "Il Bel Paese", sometimes providing detailed descriptions and acute observations concerning the great and enduring laws by which the earth and all within it are governed. In the present chapter an attempt is made to reproduce Goethe’s ante litteram geotourism itinerary through Italy, which is considered one of the most attractive tourist destination worldwide thanks to its rich cultural and natural heritage and the outstanding aesthetic qualities of its complex landscape.
