Prof. dr. Svetlana Slapšak: Ancient Travelogues, Tourism, Souvenirs

Part of the Communication and Mobility in Antiquity series

How the Greeks exploited Roman tourists – elite tourism.

Hotels, sports events, rituals for tourists, descriptions of tourist attractions, antiques and souvenir trade. Gastronomy travelogues. A trip to Greece constituted the highest degree of study (including compulsory translation of Greek texts), and seeing the sights confirmed the elite status of a Roman subject. When touring Greece, a visit to different philosophical schools was a must.

The lecture will be presented in Slovenian, no simultaneous translation is provided.
