The NEW SPIN on Italy!

Avoid losing precious time during your vacation by always knowing where you are, what's all around you, and what might be interesting to you. With SpiniCity® Spinner Boards, you can avoid lines, spread out in the city, and see at least twice as many things than you would if you were constantly lost. 


Traveling this way helps spread tourists throughout the cities. This, in turn, reduces the heavy foot-traffic in the 'top-10' sites. Which, in turn, contributes to the long-term preservation of our important Cultural Heritage sites.

Each time you return, you don't need to keep seeing the same old sites, because SpiniCity will take you to over 100 sites in your favorite Italian cities.

(Well, it IS pretty fun!)

How It Works

Let's Talk ITALY!

Have you ever wanted to visit an archaeological dig site? Well, put on your Indiana Jones because here you go! ROME has some of the coolest archaeological sites in the world, and they are all waiting for you! Over the past decades, archaeologists have uncovered a huge amount of Rome's history, and this is the only guide book that will help you get to all of them. And with our FREE Spinicity® Spinner Board, you will quickly find over 101 sites to visit in Rome - all on your own!

What is the single most important thing to a Florentine? The Renaissance! (And you thought it was their food, right?)  This is the only travel guide that will connect all of the dots of Florence and the Renaissance, enabling you to get a much deeper sense of who that city really is! And with our FREE Spinicity® Spinner Board, you will quickly find over 101 sites to visit in Florence - all on your own! And the food? Oh, yah... that's amazing too!

Most travel books will take you to the same few sites as the others. But this book will take you back 1,500 years and make you question why you never learned about it in school! Sure, you'll get lost in Venice - it's part of the fun. But this book will show you what you are passing by while you are trying to find your way out. And understand why Venice was considered one of the most formidable powers in Western Europe - for 1,000 years! Let Spinicity® show you 101 sites to see in Venice!

About Patty


For 16 years, Patty served on the Director's Council of the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA. During those years, she traveled with scientists to research lost and ancient cultures. This experience made her an expert traveler that wanted to know more. A marketing writer and photographer by trade, Patty took her love of history, archaeology and travel and mushed them together with her natural inclination for writing and photography. The result is a new line of travel books and tools that incorporates today's way of thinking mindfully while going deeper than ever before.
