WHO AM I
Margherita Cavenago, Art Historian and Licenced Guide
Italian by birth, I’ve always been passionate about cultural heritage and I obtained a PhD in Art History at Siena University. Actually, I lived and worked in this enchanting little town in Tuscany before leaving Italy and making Paris my adopted city.
My love for Parisian history and beauty made me a French National Licenced Guide (Card n° 1975143P delivered by the French Ministry of Culture and by the Ministry of Tourism). A guarantee of quality and seriousness, the professional card also allows me to accompany you inside museums and historical monuments.
What a pleasure to be a guide! The pleasure of welcoming and taking care of you with professionalism and kindness. The pleasure of sharing with you my dedication to art, history and botany. The pleasure of traveling through time, revealing beauty, enriching your knowledge, making you smile, bringing you pathos… The pleasure of sharing passion and emotions.
