Elizabeth F. Heath
Writer & Editor
I am a US-born writer and editor living in central Italy, from where I write about luxury and family travel, wellness, soft adventure, culture and cuisine in Italy, Europe, the Mediterranean and points further. My work has been published in The Washington Post, HuffPost, The Telegraph, Frommers.com, Cruise Critic, Skyscanner, Aer Lingus's in-flight, Cara, TimeOut Rome and TimeOut Venice, Wander Travel & Wellness Magazine, LuxeGetaways, Citizen-Femme, USA TODAY’s 10Best, Thrillist, Vice MUNCHIES and other outlets. I write the Rome content for Frommer's Travel Guides, and I am the Italy and Switzerland Expert for TripSavvy.com (formerly About.com Travel). I was Team Lead and Regional Editor for Touring Bird (via Vaco @ Google), the experiential travel site from Area120, Google's internal project incubator. My first-edition guidebook, The Architecture Lover's Guide to Rome (Pen & Sword Books), was released in 2019.
I have degrees in fine art and humanities and I've completed doctoral studies in anthropology and archaeology. My first job out of college required me to visit all corners of the US, and I was afterward hooked on travel. I've served as editor in chief for several lifestyle magazines in Southwest Florida and taught writing and humanities at the university level.
I am a member of the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) and the International Travel Writers Alliance (ITWA). I am available to discuss writing assignments, editorial positions, press visits, and branded content opportunities.
