About the Author

Born to northern Italian parents, Australian travel writer Cristian Bonetto spends significant amounts of time in Italy each year.

While he loathes playing favourites, he will admit that Rome has a particular hold on him. Not only does he love its nail-biting backstory, extraordinary architecture and ivy-clad back streets, he’s also drawn to its less obvious, everyday charms, from vintage espresso bars to avant-garde concept stores, off-the-radar boutiques and suburban street art. Together, they keep his camera clicking and his notebooks full of scribbles and stories.

Cristian turned his hand to travel writing in 2000 and he has written more than 30 travel guides for Lonely Planet, for destinations as varied as Naples, Venice, Copenhagen, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore and Brisbane. He is also a globe-trotting host of travel videos and a travel writer for UK newspaper The Telegraph.

Rome Precincts is part of the award-winning Precincts series. Other books in the series include Melbourne Precincts, London Precincts, Sydney Precincts, Tokyo Precincts, Paris Precincts, Hong Kong Precincts and Barcelona Precincts.

Roman Precincts by Cristian Bonetto is published by Hardie Grant Travel (Melb, Vic; Feb 2019; Hb; 256pp; RRP A$39.99). It is svailable at good bookshops and can be purchased online via booko.com.au »
