Meet the Author

About 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 Memorable Walks in New York, is a co-author of Frommer's Italy from $70 a Day, and contributes to Frommer's Europe and Frommer's Europe from $60 a Day. When not on the road, he splits his time between Columbia, Missouri, and his native Philadelphia.
