After graduating from the Louvre School in Paris, I spent many years teaching art history on the Nice university benches before becoming a guide approved by the Embassy of the United States for personalities visiting Paris. Originally from the French Riviera, I decided to return to my homeland to share my passion for my region with visitors from around the world. Real archeology lover, I wanted to share my knowledge and my experiences with the public by organizing versatile and entertaining tours. I then founded Riviera Discovery Tours, which offers guided tours in English, French, Italian and Russian in the most beautiful sights of the French Riviera. Member of the famous French Riviera Cruise Club, I like to provide a high quality service to ensure the best experience for my clients. With my team of guides interpreters graduate from the French Ministry Tourism department, I organize tours of the geographical, cultural and historical heritage of the French Riviera, while adding a playful dimension. Visit the magnificent Picasso Museum of the beautiful port city of Antibes, discover the secrets of perfume making in Grasse, participate in a treasure hunt in Saint Paul de Vence... But also, discover the secrets of the ancient Mediterranean civilizations that have shaped the picturesque character of the French Riviera.
