Ciao! I’m Natalie.
I’m orginally from California, but I have been living in Rome full time since 2010.
I moved to the Eternal City for graduate school, and thought I might stick around for a little while longer.
Now I am a freelance writer based in Rome, writing about a city I love (as well as about Italy and beyond but more on that in the Press Section). In fact, I found so many places and things that I love about Rome that I decided to put them all into one app called Discover Rome.
Most days you can find me at my 1950s kitchen table turned desk, or running around like this:
It sounds a bit like a beginning of joke: an American girl and and Irish guy walk into a Roman bar…
But it turned out to be the real deal.
I love to travel throughout Italy and beyond. You may see some non-Italian posts on my worldwide adventures but you can filter to find Italy or Rome-specific posts from the menu at the top of every page.
Even with all the travel I have been lucky enough to undertake for work and for pleasure, Rome is still the most beautiful city I have ever seen. I love the unexpected corners of Rome, and the delicious Rome restaurants (naturally).
You can also feel free to contact me anytime.
Finally, you will find interviews and more information about commissioning content development (did I mention I am a writer? no?) under the Press section of this site.
P.S. thanks to Sara for the photo of me juggling my camera. My selfie game is WEAK.
