About the author (2010)

After working for many years as a publishing manager at Lonely Planet's Melbourne headquarters, Virginia decided that she'd be happier writing guidebooks than commissioning them. Since making this decision she's authored Lonely Planet guides to Turkey, Egypt, Spain, Italy, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria and the United Arab Emirates. Virginia knows Istanbul well, and loves it with a passion. As well as writing the previous two editions of this city guide, she is also the author of Lonely Planet's Istanbul Encounter pocket guide and the Istanbul chapter of Lonely Planet's Turkey guide. She also writes about the city for a host of international newspapers and magazines. Virginia usually travels with her partner Peter and young son Max, who love the city as much as she does.
