Originally from Warsaw, Poland, Kasia Parys holds Master’s degrees in history and in Italian studies, both attained at the University of Warsaw, as well as a BSc degree in Mathematics from the Open University in UK. She’s been living in Rome for fourteen years, but her acquaintance with the city had begun many years before, during several private and university visits.
Granted a scholarship by Italian Government, she came to Rome in 2009 to research ancient Christian worship in Rome. In her studies she had to combine many disciplines, like history, liturgy, topography, archaeology and art history of late antique and medieval Rome. All this makes the religious history of Rome from 1st until 16th century have no mysteries for her.
She is a licensed guide in Rome and the Vatican since 2016, sharing her passion for Rome in English, Italian and Polish.
