Writing about Paris while being in Rome... Well it looks like I am not the only Roman-based one who fell in love with the French capital. Remember the food tour I went on last July, which made me discover the typical Roman recipes and best food specialities (you can read about here by the way)? It was organised by The Roman Guy*, a passionate team of young Italy travel experts and trip planners whose main aim is to infuse fun into their tours to offer a different experience from what you can usually expect from a similar service.

The Louvre

Thanks to their heartfelt work and the positive feedback they've gathered from clients, they have decided to apply the concept to... Yes, you got the answer from the beginning, Paris! French capital, one of my favourite cities, another world for people to discover. I must say I was quite excited when I learnt the news and wanted to know what content they would offer for the City of Lights: they really hit the nail on the head with three different tours.


1. The Unmissable: Le Louvre

The Louvre being the biggest museum in the world with more than 38,000 works of art and thousands of people waiting in line just to see Mona Lisa (that we have not stolen from Italians), we can all agree that popping by the majestic place is a must-do. I remember going there several times on school trips and not being able to complete the visit (ever) given the size of the museum. I also need to precise that I have never had the opportunity to actually visit it with a guide, which I am convinced would be a lot of fun with a guide who knows it by the back of their hands and provides you with fun facts along the way. Fortunately for your schedule and precious time in Paris, the Louvre Tour offer skip the line privileges.


2. An historical must-see : Les Catacombes

Have you ever heard about the Catacombs before? Not only does it appear in the Hunchback of Notre-Dame, but this very famous place is also the world's biggest grave. For long, its mysteries have remained uncovered though, and not everyone knows about its history and people. I wouldn't think of visiting it in the first place, but I reckon the Catacombs tour offered by The Paris Guy would be a great occasion to discover more about it (while always skipping the terrible queue awaiting anyone visiting Paris)!


3. To feel like a king or a queen: Versailles

In spite of living in Rome, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, I can't help but thinking the Château de Versailles is an extraordinary ambassador of the French beauty and history. Residence of Sun-King Louis XIV, built in a baroque architecture, the place is particularly noteworthy for its Galerie des Glaces (Hall of Mirrors) which for sure makes every French (and foreign) people gape in awe. Between its 2,000 rooms and incredible jardin à la française, Versailles is a must-see if you pop by Paris - and no worries, The Paris Guy takes care of everything, from the train trip (it is just outside the capital) to the palace's special visit. Have a look at the Versailles Tour here

What I enjoyed the most during my Roman tour was the fun I experienced and the passion of the guide who made us discover a bit of Rome. That's why I honestly can't wait for The Paris Guy and its guides to make people discover more of my beloved capital, Paris, as I know many will immediately fall in love with the city.

Here I am, writing a blog post on a Sunday evening after a lively weekend to talk you through a life reflection that just popped up - or rather, something which has unconsciously guided me through life and that I had never put into words (until now).

Enjoying The Little Things

Here I am, writing a blog post on a Sunday evening after a lively weekend to talk you through a life reflection that just popped up - or rather, something which has unconsciously guided me through life and that I had never put into words (until now).

Whenever I think about a nude makeup look, two things in particular pop up in my mind: the no-makeup makeup look and the one based on soft pink and black eyeliner. Although I'm a big fan of the first one, I've recently been enjoying wearing nude eyeshadow and lipstick to look a bit more sophisticated on a daily basis, so I thought I'd share how I now spend 15 precious minutes in the morning. Plus, there's finally a photo of me wearing makeup in a post about makeup so get ready, big things are coming.

Is this another post on new year resolutions? Well yes and no. I woke up on 1st January just like every other day of my life without even giving them a thought - I'm not into the debate as to whether they're useful or not - but then, a couple of things popped in my mind a few days ago.
