★ About the Author ★
My name is Josephine but my friends call me Jo. I am an Australian writer and TV presenter and I fell in love with Rome more than 30 years ago. I have been a traveller for most of my life but somehow I always dreamed of living here.
There was something about Rome and its ancient secrets that caught my imagination and I moved here five years ago. Once I started discovering the city's historic gems - not to mention the food and wine - I was hooked.
I have had balmy nights zipping past the Colosseum on a Vespa or staring at the Pantheon in the middle of winter when no-one's around. But I have also had fun burrowing beneath churches, parks and even office buildings in search of Roman treasures like tombs and temples.
It's the best.
