My name is Agnes Crawford. Originally from London, I graduated from Edinburgh University with a Master of Arts degree in Architectural History in 1999. I moved to Rome in 2000, married a Roman, and have lived here ever since.
I am a licensed guide with ten years’ experience. I have also contributed to a number of guide books, including several editions of the Time Out Guide to Rome, the shopping guide Where to Wear, and Frommer’s Italian Islands.
I am passionately enthusiastic about the city, and believe that by Understanding Rome your visit will be both more meaningful, and much more enjoyable. As well as exploring ruins and churches, Understanding Rome is also about where to take your coffee, the best places for gelato, and where to shop. I will be delighted to help you feel as at home in Rome as I do.
