Gillian Knows Best Substack Newsletter

I don't spend much time here on the blog anymore. If you are looking for me, don't worry, I am still writing and taking pictures. I post almost daily on Instagram . You can watch my stories and come along with me on walks through Rome and Venice, on museum visits, and having coffee ( or wine or spritzes ) with pals.  I write a regular newsletter over on Substack . I post a new guide every week. The first guide of the month is free for all subscribers. Paid subscribers will get two additional detailed guides with a private Google map and a monthly Q&A with me. I highlight a museum exhibit every month. Sometimes I'll tell you what I am watching, listening to, and reading. Sometimes there is a Spotify playlist. There will be photographs I haven't posted anywhere else. I am really enjoying it over there and the subscription fees from my readers contribute to me being able to create consistent and quality content for you. Come on over! I would love to see you there!
