Julia

I came to Paris from Moscow to follow a master degree in law and I finally fell in love with French history and art. That changed my life completely. After I graduated I followed an other degree in what became my passion : the Art history and I became a professional licensed tour guide. I am passionate about the art history, particularly the decorative art, art of a table and history of gastronomy. I am working in the most famous sights in Paris and its area: museums, palaces, antic markets etc. I am always searching for interesting facts about the places I work in and mastermiding new tours.
