Who Am I ?

Since I was a child, I am passionate about the Middle Ages, and I decided that my passion would become my everyday life and my work. Since 2011, I have my professional card as tourist guide, and I have had the possibility to discover Tours and its areas to the various public.
What I like in this work: Is to speak about the great History of France in a simple and comprehensible way for everybody, and to spend a nice time sharing with the people I am guiding.
In my visits, I approach architecture, important historical incidents, important characters which have marked our History, the evolution of cities and monuments, the everday life and I like to give some anecdotes.
