    About the Author

    Donald Strachan (chapters 1 and 4–8) is a London-based writer and journalist. He has written about Italian travel for publications including the Sunday Telegraph, Independent on Sunday, Sydney Morning Herald, and Guardian, and is the author of Frommer’s Florence & Tuscany Day by Day and coauthor of Tuscany & Umbria With Your Family.

    Stephen Keeling (chapters 1-3 and 9-12) grew up in England, lived briefly in Latvia, and spent 12 years as a financial journalist in Asia. Despite attempts to kick his gelato addiction, he has been to Italy many times—an incomparable knowledge of Tuscan Chinese restaurants formed while chaperoning a group of Vietnamese officials in 1994. Stephen is the coauthor of the award-winning Tuscany & Umbria with Your Family and currently lives in New York City.
