After graduating in Art History in Rome, I came to Paris a decade ago to pursue my studies. I was then admitted to the renowned "Ecole du Louvre"—the royal path for anybody willing to specialise in the Arts and Culture.

One thing leading to another, I settled in Paris for good. First to wind up my studies in Art History and PR, then to begin my career in the field of Culture.

After a couple of positions held in Paris museums, I started to fully invest myself as a tourist guide from 2013. Two years later, I decided to move to Nice, a city I immediately fell in love with: a perfect blend of culture and nature, nestled between a particularly blue mediterranean sea and the green Alpes.

I mostly work with ship cruises visiting the highlights of the Côte d’Azur: Monaco, Nice, Cannes, Grasse … At the same time, I organize my own Private Guided Tours for smaller groups. With this additional activity, I can be more independent and have a privileged exchange with visitors.

Let me know what you expect from your next visit and I will make it my pleasure to make that Happen!
See you soon in Côte d'Azur !

Nice, April 2018



“Informative, entertaining & very friendly. Thank you Marina for this excellent idea.”

"Nice and informative meet up with a good bunch of people!! Hoping to do it again!"

"Marina was very knowledgeable and fun. We learned so much and enjoyed it."

“I arrived in Paris exhausted& convinced that Paris was the filthiest place I have ever been. In less than two days, Marina had me loving the city. When I mentioned a couple of obscure items I would like to see in during my visit, she arrived prepared, having researched the things beforehand. She took us to see several places that I really didn't have any interest in, but it turned out she was right and I loved them! Extremely nice lady! Would love to come& tour Montmartre with her someday!”

“Marina was a great tour guide and helped maximize our time during my families layover in Paris. From the time she meet us at the airport to the end of tour she was full of information about Paris. She customized a tour for us and made sure we saw the attractions we asked to see. I truly hope to see Paris again one day with Marina!!!”

“Marina arrived at our hotel and immediately knew we had made a good choice for a guide. Marina projected a very personable person. She maped out our 3 days of tours to see the things we wanted to see and kept us moving in a timely manner. Marina presented details and history which we were in awe of and had an answer for every question we had. She went above and beyond for other things we needed help with as well. We highly recommend Marina to help you have a wonderful experience of Paris.”
