Through my university studies made in Rome, I have been for over 20 years a translator working 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 15 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, as well as introducing travelers to all Paris museums, such as the Louvre, Orsay the Orangerie, or Versailles without any waiting line!
I can propose half days or full days Paris sightseing by coach, in private car with driver, 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 you trip sharing with you my own passion.
A Recent Review of this guide
This was one of my best travel days of a full travel life. Patricia was amazing. Her fund of knowledge, her willingness to so enthusiastically share this wealth of information, her great attention to all of the small details of the trip, her extremely engaging personality and fun demeanor made this day truly wonderful. Our driver Richard was also extremely engaging and can park a car anywhere. This day at Giverny and Versailles was extremely special. Thanks so much, Patricia!
