Sara V.

Paris, France

Bonjour! I am an Italian art historian Parisian at heart and a licensed tour guide in France.

I fell in love with Paris a long time ago, when I visited this incredible city for the first time.
When I moved here I decided to learn everything I could about history, culture, art but also legends, traditions, food, lifestyle, boutiques. . . I ended up being a French licensed tour guide, a professional personal shopper in Paris and I am still learning! I make new discoveries every day and I love sharing my knowledge with travelers who are curious to learn something more than what you can read in tourists' books.

In my tour, I love making the past life again, following unusual paths even in the most touristic areas and letting you experience the authentic Paris, feeling like local.
I am smiling and flexible: if you are looking for a truly taylorMade Parisian tour in a very friendly atmosphere feel free to contact me and I will organize it for you: from walking tours in the city to high-end shopping experiences, from Skip-the-line Museums visits to thematic itineraries to enjoy Parisian cultural or gastronomic heritage. . .

I have a strong historical and artistic background (graduated with honours in History of Art in Venice, Italy) and I've been working in tourism for more than 9 years. I have 3 different tour guide licenses, including the official French Tour Guide License (Carte Professionelle de Guide Conferencier n. 1475034P) so I can guide you in all French museums and monuments, providing a Skip-the-line service for almost all of them.
I am not a driver but I can arrange for you private transfers with fully licensed and professionally insured drivers in Paris and outside the city (day excursions to Versailles, Loire Castles, Chartres. . . ).
I've been working with schools for years (and I have 2 children) so I know what you are looking for if you are travelling with kids.

A Recent Review of this guide

Sara was extremely knowledgeable about all of the masterpieces of The Louvre. She help forge a relationship between the art and the history behind it. It was everything from fun, mind blowing, and mysterious. I would definitely recommend her as a guide to anyone. Thank you Sara!
