DEEP TRAVEL Books & Tools

Today's travelers do everything on the run. They drop into a city, find a great place for a drink and a meal, visit the top 2-3 most crowded tourist locations, then boom, they're gone.

Award-Winning Author PATTY CIVALLERI​ never felt good about this mode of travel because she would leave a country with more questions than she had before she arrived.

​CIVALLERI is launching a series of new Travel Books for the time-challenged traveler that wants to dive a bit deeper than a typical tourist, but has no interest in reading a heavy textbook.

About the Author

As a historian and global archaeology professional, Patty Civalleri has traveled for 17 years to the deepest corners of our ancient past in search of lost civilizations all over our planet. She has had the privilege of doing so with some of the foremost archaeologists and scientists in the world.

She presents the world with the same intellectual excitement that has driven her through lost caves, ancient tombs, and historical personalities that have been lost to time. 

Civalleri enjoys the honor of serving on the Director's Council of the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA), and on the Board of the Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies at California State University in Long Beach (CSULB), and as the 2017 Commodore of the Alamitos Bay Chargers boating club in Long Beach, Ca.

As a writer, photographer, graphic designer, and technology professional, Patty has had the pleasure of building websites, photographing, marketing and writing for over 200 commercial business clients around the country.

Civalleri is an avid cook, sailor, singer and classical pianist residing in Long Beach, California.

​"​One word for this book: fantastic!
