More About the Author

Jeffrey Kennedy has thoroughly enjoyed living in Europe for the last quarter of a century and has been lucky enough to author and co-author a plethora of travel guides and articles for major international publishers.

His chosen destinations have included Rome, Naples and many other regions of Italy; San Francisco and Miami and other parts of Florida in his native US; Mallorca, Andalusia and Barcelona in Spain; and parts of Greece and France.

He has also written a semi-historical novel, coming soon - an esoteric thriller entitled "Pan's Dominion", set on his beloved island of Capri and in Rome, his Eternal City.

This is one of three books I took on a very recent 14-day tour of Tuscany and Umbria. (The others were Michelin Tuscany and Blue Guide Tuscany.) I had a rental car and I mainly visited the smaller places (Orvieto, Montepulciano, Pienza, ...) This Rough Guide has three authors and is very well balanced. At least one author knows a lot of history and art history, so the book has substantial depth for the serious traveler. (The Blue Guide has even more depth, and I'd whip that out for a second opinion.) I also frequently followed the Rough Guide's recommendations for hotels and restaurants, and my experiences were generally excellent. If I had to limit myself to one book, this would be it.

Rough Guide is my fav reference for Tuscany/Umbria. The new color photos & better grade of paper are nice but the content was disappointing. This is supposed to be an updated version yet there are no websites listed for any museos, ristoranti & most hotels. One can find better info @ Trip Advisor.

A wonderfully detailed guide that took us to many special places in Umbria. It was especially nice to have it on the iPad and iPhone, since we were only using the Umbria section.
