1,000 Places To See Before You Die – Review & Giveaway – Ends 6/15

1,000 Places To See Before You Die

by Patricia Schultz


The world’s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places reinvented the idea of travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek wrote, it “tells you what’s beautiful, what’s fun, and what’s just unforgettable— everywhere on earth.” And now the best is better. There are 600 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano or Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast.

Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed, rewritten, and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz,but also moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm.

The world is calling. Time to answer.


Patricia Schultz is also the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller1,000 Places to See in the United States and Canada Before You Die. A veteran travel journalist with 25 years of experience, she has written for guides such as Frommer’s and Berlitz and periodicals including The Wall Street Journal and Everyday With Rachael Ray. She also executive-produced a Travel Channel television show based on 1,000 Places to See Before You Die. Her home base is New York City.


I think that I will never die

so that I can see

all 1,000 places that were presented up to me.

Patricia Shultz has made it clear

that places far and places near

are waiting – calling out to me…

come come come and see.

Places A to places Z.

Some places expensive, some places for free…

resorts, museums, and forests of trees.

Cathedrals, festivals, deltas, and rivers.

Just the thought of it all gives me the shivers.

Listed by Continents, maps are included

prices and fee so you know if you’re suited

to visit or stay, for a day or a week…

and all of the entertainment you seek.

Oh no, I can’t die, cause there’s too much to see.

Sending thanks to Patricia… yes, thank you from me.
