The Roman Forum, the Leaning Tower, the Piazza San Marco- these are the sights synonymous with Italy. But such landmarks only scratch the surface of this magical country's offerings. In See You in the Piazza, Frances Mayes introduces us to the Italy only the locals know, as she and her husband, Ed, eat and drink their way through fifteen regions - from Friuli to Sardinia. Along the way, she seeks out the cultural and historic gems not found in traditional guidebooks.

Frances conjures the enchantment of the backstreets, the hubbub of the markets, the dreamlike wonder of that space between lunch and dinner when a city cracks open to those who would wander or when a mind is drawn into the pages of a delicious book - and discloses to us the secrets that only someone who is on intimate terms with a place could find.

About the Author

In addition to her worldwide bestselling Tuscany memoirs Under the Tuscan Sun, Bella Tuscany , and Every Day in Tuscany , Frances Mayes is the author of the travel memoir A Year in the World, illustrated books In Tuscany and Bringing Tuscany Home (with Edward Mayes), The Tuscan Sun Cookbook (also with Edward Mayes), and her most recent memoir, Under Magnolia.

She has published a novel, Swan, set in the South; The Discovery of Poetry: A Guide for Readers and Writers; and five books of poetry. She divides her time between Tuscany and North Carolina.
