About the Author

Dana and Michael, Cadogan's inimitable writing duo, are widely acclaimed for their unique blend of eloquent, entertaining cultural comment and practical, discerning travel advice. To date, they have over 45 Cadogan guides to their name – regional guides to France and series on Italy, Spain, Greece and Turkey.
