There is magic in the name of Paris. It is this very old magic that our Paris Insight walks reveal to you. Where the “tourism industry” takes you mainly to the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Invalides, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Elysées, Versailles... Virginia (without ignoring the monuments which make Paris famous) immerses you in the history of Paris, its past and present life, and helps you find what turned this city into a magnet for generations of artists as well as ordinary visitors.

Paris is a myth. The myth can become a reality, but a crowded tour bus or an afternoon amid throngs of other tourists can easily sour the dream. Paris Insight, with Virginia as your guide, will immerse you in the very depths of the city, reveal its music to you and make audible the voices of the famous people who fell in love with it and contributed to its fame.

Virginia’s walking tours are more than walk-by descriptions of buildings and monuments. Her knowledge of Paris, her passion and talent as a storyteller help you find that je ne sais quoi that you have been dreaming of, searched for and expected to find on arriving in the city.
