The partnership celebrates the early beginnings of the MICHELIN Guide as a product of brothers Andre and Edouard Michelin’s grand vision to promote the art of travel and mobility through the use of Michelin tyres. The guide was introduced in 1900 to encourage motorists to explore hidden gems, along with other helpful information such as restaurants and bed and breakfasts along the way, information on how to change tires and where to fill up your vehicle.
