Susan Van Allen's new travel adventure guide, 100 Places in Italy Every Woman Should Go, is now available as an iPhone app from the iTunes app store for $5.99. Travelers' Tales publisher James O'Reilly explains his decision, "We chose Susan's book as one of our first iPhone apps because it's uniquely suited for mobile use, that is to say, a perfect combination of technology and a very passionate expert. Say you're somewhere in Italy — Puglia, Venice, Milan, Tuscany, Rome — and you're at a loss as to what to do — your guidebook doesn't ring any chimes. Use your iPhone app and let Susan Van Allen be your loving goddess, leading you by the hand to an eternal golden moment."
Van Allen's book celebrates the country's feminine soul, and the book is a treasure hunt of delightful pleasures. Like a savvy girlfriend whispering in your ear, Van Allen weaves history, culture and practical information to help any traveler plan a blissful vacation in bell'Italia. MaryBeth Bond, author of Gutsy Women and Best Girlfriend Getaways Worldwide published a recent statistic that 80% of travel decisions are made by women. Bond believes Van Allen's book is "A wonderful gift for any woman traveling to Italy. With Susan's advice you won't be overwhelmed and you'll discover how nurturing it is to travel in a country that has honored us since we all descended from Venus."
Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun and Every Day in Tuscany says the book, "Makes me want to pack my bags and follow Van Allen's alluring suggestions...she reveals an intimacy with Italy and a honed sense of adventure. Andiamo!"
