Meet the Author

Reid Bramblett learned Italian on the playground of a Roman parochial school when he was 12, explored Italy with his parents for two years in a hippie-orange VW camper, and spent a year studying there during a break from the anthropology department at Cornell. After a stint in Frommer's editorial offices, Reid vaulted over the desk to write Frommer's first guide to Tuscany and Umbria and hasn't stopped exploring, learning, interviewing, taking notes, and reporting it all in guidebooks since. He has also written Frommer's Portable Florence, Frommer's Memorable Walks in New York, Europe For Dummies, is coauthor of Frommer's Italy from $70 a Day, and contributes to Frommer's Europe from $70 a Day. When not on the road, he lives in Maspeth, Queens, with two cats and the brilliant and beautiful Frances Sayers, without whose invaluable help and stupendous patience none of those books listed above (to say nothing of this one) could have been written.
