Welcome to my Art and Architecture Worlds website, dedicated to an appreciation of great architecture, art, archaeological sites, and the adventures of travel. You can keep up with my travels with Smithsonian Journeys  and with my independent travels on my travel blog on this site. I’ll be exploring Turkey and Italy in the spring of 2020. See the Contact page if you want to e-mail me. It’s always great to hear from fellow travelers. 

If you want any of my books—or books with my articles in them—see my author’s page on Amazon (click here). Most of my academic articles are available, however, on this page as downloadable .pdfs (click here). My book, Palermo: Travels in the City of Happiness, is out in Kindle e-book and paperback versions, both available through Amazon. My most recent book, The Hippodrome of Istanbul / Constantinople (2019), with 82 illustrations, is also available on Amazon, paperback only,

If you are interested in Famagusta, you'll also be interested in Dan Frodsham's wonderful film on the restoration of the Forty Martyrs of Sebaste in the church of St Peter and Paul and Famagusta.
