Summary/Abstract: Two important nineteenth-century books whose subject is a trip to Italy are the subject matter of this article. They are considered to be a model of how travelling was perceived at that time both as a real experience and as its record. But the analysis of various author’s textual strategies enables to observe the difficulty in finding homogeneous travel narrative. “The dilemma of travel” is a metaphor of modern man’s confrontation with cultural past.
