“I’ve just returned from six weeks in Italy and how I wish I’d had Van Allen’s book.  It positively sparkles with delight in all matters female which, it turns out, is an optimal way to reveal particularly delicious matters Italian. Italy has a new portrait: sexy and savvy. Makes a gal smile in English and Italian, to eat up this compendium of Italy‘s most delectable women’s outings.” – Anne Calcagno, author of  Pray For Yourself.

 “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 woman (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

Susan took her exhaustive research and whipped up 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 EternalCity

 “That old Freudian chestnut–‘What do women really want?!’ — has been answered once again in yet another appealing Travelers’ Tales opus specifically designed for, and written by, women. In this instance, Susan Van Allen has romped through an Italy replete with seductive goddesses and female saints, architectural wonders, beauty spas, entrancing beaches, shopping sprees and craft/cultural courses, and picked the very best, mixing dreamy delights with drops of dainty decadence. Van Allen suggests readers: “treat this book like a cookbook…and make a full meal of it.” She obviously did. You could–and you should.David Yeadon, author of “Seasons In Basilicata
