Meet Viator's Team of Travel Experts
Sila Cameselle Vila
Melanie joined London's product team as a Product Coordinator for Europe (EMEA) in August 2012. Originally from Austria, Melanie is a true cosmopolitan and has lived and studied/worked in Italy, Germany, Hawaii and Brazil. Melanie loves exploring new destinations, trying out local specialties and getting in touch with the locals.
Having worked as an incoming manager in Brazil, Melanie got the chance to travel this vast country and explore places such as Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Sao Paolo, the Iguassu Falls—for free! Her travel tip: Rather than staying in a chain hotel, try out the local pousadas where you have a greater chance to get to know the local people and other travelers.
