I fell in love with Paris 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 licensed tour guide, a professional personal shopper and I am still learning! I make new discoveries everyday 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 live 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 honors 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.
