Wherever you are in the world you can order it on your local Amazon and it will ship directly to you. (Amazon has exclusive rights to my books)

So far Glam Italia! 101 Fabulous Things to Do in Rome has been doing really well. It is the Number 1 New Release in Rome Travel Guides, Vatican Travel Guides, Italy Travel Guides, Malta (because of the Caravaggio stories in the book), has been a Best Seller in Rome Travel Guides – there have been days where it has outsold Rick Steves! Amazon called me to tell me that it had been charting high every day and was outperforming expectations. So I am pretty excited!


Paperback or Digital?

The book is available both in paperback and on Kindle/Kindle App. If you are not sure which is the right version for you, this may help you decide:


The digital version of the book is available on Kindle and the Kindle App. I don’t own a Kindle, so I use the app instead. It is on my phone and my iPad (so any smartphone and tablet, and I think laptops too). This is actually how I read books now, everything goes to the app and I read them on my iPad, even library books! It is fantastic for travel and has just become really convenient at home too.

Personally I don’t read books on my phone, I prefer a bigger screen. But it does come in handy when you are out sightseeing and want to pull up information quickly, especially if you don’t have Wi-Fi or only have limited or slow Wi-Fi. This is super useful when you want to order food or wine, are trying to remember where I recommended for Instagram pics or sunsets in Rome, or are at some historic site and want to get the scoop on it.


The only exception to my reading digital is when I buy travel books. I like to highlight things, dog ear pages, put post it notes in there and I tend to write in the margins too. So if that’s you then a print copy might be your best choice.

What Is Matchbook?

Amazon lets me set the book to Matchbook, so that you can get a digital copy for cheap if you order a print copy.

They set the digital to $2.99 if you already have the print version. (The digital is $8.95 at the moment and will go up next month to $9.95)

When you are out sightseeing all day it can be a nuisance carrying a book with you. That’s where matchbook comes in handy. You can download the Kindle App and get the book on your smartphone, for cheap. You’ve already done your research and know which places you want to visit, so now instead of carrying the book with you, you can just pull it up on your phone on the app and go directly to the chapter you need or the place you are standing in front of.

It can be quite handy. Also, the Matchbook option stays there, so you don’t have to buy both versions at once, instead you can just download the digital version later if it looks like it will be beneficial.

Take A Photo!

If you have the paperback version of either (or both!) of my books and are taking them with you when you travel, please snap a photo of yourself with the book and post it on social media (tag me) or email it to me. I get a huge kick out of seeing my readers with the books. Many of you have emailed me or messaged me on social media to tell me you are doing something from one of the books, and I can’t tell you how much it totally makes my day!

You Need To Know About The Best Rome Travel Guidebook

Are you going to Rome this year? or ever? Then you need to know about the best Rome travel guidebook. Because I wrote it!

The best Rome Guidebook Glam Italia! 101 Fabulous Things To Do In Rome

I am so excited to tell you that my new book is finally here! Glam Italia! 101 Fabulous Things to Do in Rome: Beyond the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps is now available worldwide on Amazon.com

Did you know that Rome is the 3rd most visited city in Europe and the 12th most touristed city in the world? Every year millions of people come to Rome. The problem is, most of them just hit the same handful of major tourist sites – The Colosseum, The Forum, The Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, plus a few others. So everywhere they go they have to deal with huge crowds, long lines to get in, too many selfie stick selling vendors, and pickpockets. They eat at tourist restaurants close by the big sites and overpay for underwhelming food that no self respecting Roman would ever eat. And at the end of it all they are happy to leave the city in the rear-view mirror.

I on the other hand LOVE Rome. I just absolutely love this amazing city. I spend a lot of time in Rome every year and along the way have discovered incredible places to visit and things to do that the tour buses don’t know about.

You will not even believe how many staggeringly brilliant sites there are in Rome, hiding in plain sight, right under your nose, just around the corner from the big tourist spots! Even better, hardly anyone knows about them. You can look up the street and see (literally) thousands of people waiting to get into a well known attraction like the Colosseum, then walk inside one of these mind blowing places and have it all to yourself, or maybe share it with a handful of others in the know.

What’s In This Book?

Glam Italia! 101 Fabulous Things To Do In Rome

In Glam Italia! 101 Fabulous Things to Do in Rome I don’t tell you about the big sites – you already know about them! Instead every page is devoted to telling you about places you probably haven’t heard of before. (You may know of a few of them but chances are you won’t know them all). Rather than just tell you the name of a building, set of ruins or place to visit, I tell you the story behind it. The stories are at time hilarious, frequently intriguing and other times just plain crazy!

How To Use This Book:

The last thing I want you to do is to try and see everything in the book! Instead read it all and then pick and choose items to add to your itinerary. You may not be interested in Caravaggio, but after reading some of the crazy stories in the chapter may decide to pop around the corner and go see one of them.

You may not have any interest in visiting churches, but find yourself intrigued with the story behind one of them and decide to go inside for a quick look.

You may want to add to your itinerary a market or two, a couple of underground Rome sites, and a museum before snacking on Rome’s best street food, taking in the sunset, going wine tasting and then seeking out the city’s famous ghosts. It’s all easy, close by and walkable!

Find out the best Instagram spots in Rome in the best selling guide book Glam Italia! 101 Fabulous Things To Do In Rome, available worldwide on Amazon.com
Learn where to find the very best Instagram places in Rome!

If you are coming to Rome on a cruise and have only a few hours in town, chances are you will choose to spend that time visiting several of these places instead of spending 3 hours doing the Vatican or the Colosseum. If you are here for a few days you will find lots of places to add to your existing plans, or maybe replace some of them!

Each place in the book has a What’s Nearby section at the end so you can see just how many cool things are all grouped very close together. In fact almost everything in this book is within a mile radius of the Largo Argentina, a fantastic ancient site in the very heart of the historic center of Rome. You won’t need a taxi – just walk from one to the next!


Which Formats Are Available?

Glam Italia! 101 Fabulous Things To Do In Rome is available on Kindle and the Kindle App, and within the next two weeks (late May 2019) will also be available in paperback.
