“For the Florence traveler, this book is likely to be a valuable companion.”
(Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung)
“This is no normal city guide, a small, splendid novel companion.”
(Neue Ruhr Zeitung)
“Helena Julian….wrote this humorously formulated and carefully researched book to accompany the thriller.”
"We’ve come to the right place, because we’ve read Dan Brown’s Inferno thoroughly, but when immersed in the places of this travel guide, we get the feeling it could be the other way around. Namely, when I first arrive in Italy, this book and finding the locations could motivate me, just as well, to read the original, the real Dan Brown. In the best sense of the word, this book is a preparation for the novel, like a quest and a follow-up simultaneously. (…) Therefore, out of pure enjoyment read all three, Dante, Dan Brown, and what Helena Julian learned about the locations in Florence, Venice, and Istanbul. Read it for yourself; it’s worth it.”
Helena Julian is a German journalist and author of fiction and non fiction books. During her German and Romance studies, she dealt with the beginnings of literature in the Middle Ages.
