Gadling’s Travel Talk in Rome


You may already be familiar with the travel news site Gadling – if you are, you may also be familiar with the site’s relatively new travel podcast show Travel Talk. It’s a fun series (hosted by travel junkies Aaron Murphy and Stephen Greenwood) if you’re interested in following travel news, but they also tend to feature a destination each week that may be of interest to travelers as well.

Recently, the Travel Talk team went to Rome on the inaugural Alitalia direct flight from Los Angeles to Rome – and they produced three episodes out of their trip to Italy’s capital city. Each episode is below, so you can enjoy them one after another.
