Praise for 100 Places in Italy Every Woman Should Go

"Susan Van Allen might be the best girlfriend you never met...a virtual passport to a girl-friendly ride up and down the boot." --Pittsburgh Tribune

"A wonderful gift for any woman traveling to Italy. With Susan's advice you won't be overwhelmed and you'll dis-cover how nurturing it is to travel in a country that has honored us since we all descended from Venus." --Marybeth Bond, author, Gutsy Women and Best Girlfriend Getaways Worldwide

"One of the most innovative and fascinating travel guides dedicated to Italy...It fills a gap on the shelves at the right time. No ordinary directory of addresses, 100 Places in Italy Every Woman Should Go is an authentic portrait of Italy from the charmed perspective of a woman, a writer and an expe-rienced traveler." --Select Italy

"I knew that Italy was the land of la dolce vita and far niente, but this is the first book to present an organized way to find your way through her earthly and soulful wonders. I want all my girlfriends to have a copy of 100 Places." --Camille Cusumano, editor of Italy, a Love Story

"Susan Van Allen's writing makes the magic of Italy jump off the page. She has a knack for capturing the charms, quirks and authenticity of this magnificent land. Don't go to Italy without reading this!" --Kathy McCabe, editor and publisher, Dream of Italy Travel Newsletter

"No matter how many times you've been to Italy and think you know it, reading Susan Van Allen's book almost guar-antees a return trip...a delightful book you'll only put down long enough to check the flights to that fascinating country." --Carol Coviello-Malzone, author of Flavors of Rome: How, What & Where to Eat in the Eternal City

Males Weigh In: "Part guidebook, part history, and part manual to the good life in the land of La Dolce Vita, Susan Van Allen's magnum opus on all things Italian is essential reading for women (and men) who either want to get the most out of their next trip or want to be spirited back to their last." --David Farley, author of An Irreverent Curiosity

"That old Freudian chestnut-'What do women really want?!' has been answered once again. Susan Van Allen has romped through Italy and picked the very best, mixing dreamy de-lights with drops of dainty decadence. She suggests readers: "treat this book like a cookbook...and make a full meal of it." could--and you should." --David Yeadon, author of Seasons in Basilicata --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Susan Van Allen's love for Italy stems from her maternal grandparents, who emigrated from Southern Italy. She was born in Newark, New Jersey, and grew up on the Jersey shore amidst wonderful food and drama. When she first stepped off the train into Roma Termini in 1976, she got hooked on Italian travel. Since then she's explored the country up and down the boot--visiting relatives, immersing herself in the country's masterpieces and culture, taking language and cooking classes, and going on boating, biking, and hiking adventures. She's written about Italian travel for over twenty-five media outlets, including National Public Radio, Town & Country, Student Traveler, Tastes of Italia, Chicago Daily Herald, several Travelers' Tales anthologies (including Best Travel Writing 2009), and Van Allen also writes for television, and was on staff of the Emmy winning sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond. When she's not in Italy, she is based in Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband and makes scrumptious lasagnas.
