I fell in love with Rome through films, especially the 1953 classic, Roman Holiday. Six years ago I had the chance to visit the city for the second time and spend a week exploring some of its iconic locations.
Can there be anything more thrilling than reading a stranger's account of their holiday? It was that thought that motivated me to write this memoir, My Roman Holiday.
There are hundreds of informative guidebooks available, this isn't one of them. This is about my holiday and it's sprinkled with the kind of trivia that mixes Deborah Kerr's slave in Quo Vadis with Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra - and concludes with a shocking revelation that connects me with that film.
It has one saving grace, the photographs that I share. Yes, you get to see my holiday snaps!
Mercifully it was a short trip, but I still managed to uncover some curious facts that might just enhance your visit to the eternal city - and give you something to share over a glass or two of Chianti at the ristorante.
