We do cover extensive territory on this tour, some of it by public transport. Please contact us if you have mobility concerns; we will be happy to advise if this tour will be appropriate for you.
We will not be visiting the museum on our tour, but do encourage you to visit on your own after the tour. The discussions we have on our tour will provide context for understanding the Carnavalet's revolution rooms. NOTE: The Carnavalet is closed until the end of 2019 for renovations.
Born and raised not far from Paris, Thibaud has been an art and history enthusiast since childhood. He became a national tour guide after graduating with a master's degree in art history and archeology. Being able to transmit the anecdotes and stories he's gathered through his studies, walks, and readings to other enthusiasts is his dream come true.
After obtaining a double degree in History and History of Art at the Sorbonne, Cécile directed her Master's degree research towards the history of the French Revolution, which naturally led her to integrate the Carnavalet Museum in her final-stage internship. Born and raised in Paris, she enjoys sharing her knowledge about her favorite city.
Born in San Diego (USA), Gil graduated in Politics and English from Brandeis University in 1997 and spent one year at Trinity College Dublin (Ireland). He pursued public service in Boston, New Orleans, and New York, and upon earning a Master of Public Administration from NYU in 2001 he traveled around the world for a year to meet the people he hoped to one day represent. In 2003 he was working at the Claims Conference when he decided to move to San Francisco in pursuit of a backdoor option to public office: writing fiction. Some years later he completed a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, produced his first book, and married a Parisienne. Since 2010 he is based in Paris where he has worked for years presenting and developing many different walks while holding on to the writer's dream and founding the Yefe Nof Residency in Lake Arrowhead, California. He specializes in the craft of writing and has a strong education in both the literary works of canonized and contemporary fiction writers and poets and the inner workings of cities, which has amply equipped him to tell his narratives as experiences.
