"As the author of nearly 50 travel books, I know travel books! Patty has done something very unique here. She has a way of making you 'see' your trip differently - not just eat, drink, then leave. You will go deeper and leave more satisfied with Patty's books."

One of the biggest pain-points of traveling is the PLANNING process. Maps, charts, brochures, guidebooks, notes, websites, YAAAGGGHHH! 


Instead of following the masses to the limited 8-10 sites in Rome, Venice and Florence, now you can SPIN your way through 101 Sites in ROME, 101 Sites in FLORENCE, and 101 Sites in VENICE! These cities are thousands of years old, and have so much more to offer than just a few sites. But how do you find them?  With my new Travel Spinner Boards, you can plan from the street corner - before the light turns green!


The TRAVEL SPINNER BOARD is FREE when you buy a printed travel book from this site only.
Otherwise, they are only $8.99 in my shop!

(This offer applies to the printed version of these books only: "ROME Keys to the Ancient City, FLORENCE Gems & Giants, and VENICE Keys to the City.)

How the Travel SPINNER BOARD Works

Step 01

Spin the Spinner. It'll land on a location with a number. Take note of that number.

Step 02

Turn the board over to its back side. Find your number. Instantly see where the site is located in the city.

Step 03

Open the book that matches with your city:
ROME, Florence, Venice. Remember that little number? Open the book to that page to read all about today's destination.

Step 04

Fold it up and put it back in your purse or backpack.

It WON'T weigh you down!
