DISCLOSURE: AFFILIATES & SUBSIDIZED EXPERIENCES
Note that An American in Rome has financial relationships with some of the merchants mentioned on this blog, which are always disclosed in the actual blog post. An American in Rome may be compensated if consumers choose to utilize the links located in those posts and generate sales for the said merchant. You are not obligated to click on any link or buy any products that are advertised. We have always tried to merchant’s services ourselves before including them on the site.
An American in Rome is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means to earn fees by linking to recommended products on Amazon.com and affiliated sites. If affiliate links are used, this is always disclosed in the post itself. Unless otherwise stated, all the products suggested have been personally purchased by Natalie and are a direct recommendation. Affiliate links do not cost anything for the user, they simply support this blog if and when you purchase. Whenever possible, recommendations for where to buy the product locally in Rome are also included.
When and if products or experiences were received in kind, posts were sponsored, or discounts were applied, that information is made clear in the post itself. Even so, all opinions expressed, of which there are many, are those of An American in Rome and no one else. If Natalie attends an event or tries a service that she would not recommend, then you will never read about it on the blog. We sometimes accept offers to try out tours or accommodation options and accept because we wouldn’t normally take tours of our own hometown.
A note on food, because we love it and eat out a lot: if Natalie is invited to a press dinner, you won’t see it on this site. Why? Because bad meals are a personal pet peeve. If the press preview was good, she will go back as a paying customer. If it is still good, then you might see a post about the restaurant. In summary, posts only show up on An American in Rome if the quality of the experience is worth your time, energy and funds, because all of those things are pretty sacred, no?
Unless expressly otherwise stated, travel/products written about on An American in Rome have been paid for with Natalie’s very own cold hard cash.
