Through my university studies made in Rome, I have been a translator working many years in english- Italian and spanish in a french state company.
With a further degree obtained in Art and History, I became a professional National tour guide 13 years ago and founded my own tours and event company.
Through the streets or monuments of Paris I enjoy reviving great historical figures and secret places, but can also introduce travelers to all Paris museums, such as the Louvre, Orsay the Orangerie, or Versailles without any waiting line!
I can propose half day or full day Paris sightseing by coach, private car, or just walking, to discover the highlights, among which my favourites are Versailles, Giverny, Fontainebleau or Vaux le Vicomte, not forgetting the Normandy beaches and Loire Valley Castles.
I enjoy tailoring my own tours to meet with different extra activities, such as :
- a lunch in a typical parisian "brasserie" - a wine or cheese tasting session in a restaurant, or shopping through the pedestrian streets of St Germain des Près.
Either for a first discovery of Paris or to deepen knowledge of the french culture I can take care of every aspect of my travelers trip sharing with them my own passion.
A Recent Review of this guide
Patricia is lovely and we enjoyed our tour of the Egyptian section. She provided many insights into various objects that we would have been unable to obtain had we done this section on our own. As an added bonus she spent time with us viewing some of David's paintings. It was a perfect morning!
