About the Author

Christopher Livesay is an award-winning journalist and Luisa Grigoletto is an art and photography writer, both based in Rome. They wrote this book after years of learning about Rome the hard way: they made all the mistakes, waited in all the wrong lines, and ate at all the tourist traps before they got to the secret gems that are in this book, and that make this city such an extraordinary privilege to live in, and to visit.
