What you can expect

I love Versailles and its history!
I am an art historian and I want to show you why the Palace of Versailles is not only one of the most beautiful royal palaces ever built but also the key to understanding the French monarchy and the French Revolution.

I'll take care of everything: transportation, tickets and most importantly, incredible and educational insights about this wonderful local highlight. I would love to introduce you the history of the palace and tell you local stories about it; I promise we will have fun.

You'll see the external part of the building and 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!

Please NOTE that this tour does not include the visit inside the Royal Palace. To organize a private tour we will need a special ticket that might be booked in advance and cannot be purchased there. If you are interested in visiting the Royal apartment with me please ask for a personalized tour.

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."
