What you can expect

I love Versailles and its history! Join me on this easy-going tour that can be totally customized according to your wishes: we can go either by train or by car, I can guide you outside of the castle and/or inside - everything will be tailored according to your time and budget.

The tour I'm proposing is based on transportation by train and it includes a tour on the outside the castle. I will also provide you tickets and give you all the direction to make the most of your visit.

The Palace of Versailles is not only one of the most beautiful royal palace ever built but also the key to understanding the French monarchy and the French Revolution.

The tour of Versailles starts in Paris, at the train station where we meet and where I help you buying the round ticket to the palace. During our train ride (about 45 minutes) I would love to introduce you the history of the palace and tell you local stories about it.

On our arrival, I will show you all the external part of the building and give you local insights about the castle. On request, you can also visit the first part of the garden with me. Of course, I'll give suggestions for what not to miss inside!

Want to do this tour by car or would you like me to be your guide inside the palace as well? Totally possible! Ask for a personalized offer and I will make it happen!

I am an Italian art historian Parisian by heart. The City of lights conquered me more that 15 years ago, the first time I met “her”. I am passionate about Paris’s history, art, lifestyle, cuisine, fashion… and it would be a great pleasure to share my passion and my knowledge with you. In my tour I love making the past of the city and the monuments live again explaining not only the official history but also little curiosities, legends and traditions about places and people. I always do my best to give my guest the chance to learn something more about the city, to follow unusual paths, to discover the authentic Paris and to live it like a local.

I have a strong historical and artistic background and I have been working in tourism for more than 7 years. I am a qualified French Tour Guide (Carte Professionelle de Guide-Conferencier n. 1475034P) and professional personal shopper."
