When in Rome, they say, do as the Romans. It’s not bad advice in the Pacific Northwest, either.

Natalia Mandelli grew up and lives in Rome, where she’s a professional tour guide. She’s a colleague and good friend of our usual “Going Places” travel expert, Matthew Brumley.

Mandelli visited the United States last month, and spoke to 88.5’s Ed Ronco about going from tour guide to tourist.

“Going Places” is our weekly exploration of travel. Natalia Mandelli is a tour guide in Rome who works with our usual travel expert, Matthew Brumley. He’ll be back next week.

Ed Ronco is a former KNKX producer and reporter and hosted All Things Considered for seven years.
