A liminal space came into being which blurred the border between public and private space, transforming urban exterior space – streets and squares – into interior spaces (Holston 1989; Leslie 2002: 65). This rise of a liminal city space may have contributed to the introduction of tours into the urban landscape, as the city lost – at least in certain areas – some of its dangers and threats, turning into a space in which an increasingly growing number of civilians could participate. Also, with the increased ordering and structuring of the city as a result of urban planning, the ideal environment for the tourist had been created, and the tours affirmed this by showing in clarity the safe way through the ordered maze of urban space.

It emerges in the act of the traveller reading a guidebook, of him or her listening to urban narratives or memories; but it also occurs as a result of the traveller meeting with the materiality of the city, with its streets, transportation and sights. Hence, the urban experiences of the traveller and of the local inhabitant meet at certain points, and diverge at others. To a certain extent, the city absorbs the traveller into its social space or mental topography. Certainly, the linear city cannot be called an as yet ‘undiscovered city’ (Thrift 2000).
