After a law degree in Italy and Austria, I worked as a journalist for nearly 20 years, first in Italy and from 1995 to 2014 in Paris. I started guiding in 2014 and followed a new education for my national French guiding license. With my wife Kristina, an architect and historian of art, we created a guiding agency in Paris in which by now work a dozen highly qualified and licensed guides. All of us are driven by love for art, passion for history and eagerness of showing the French beauty to our guests. We provide private and group city tours as well as visits in the main Parisian museums as for instance Louvre and Musée d'Orsay. We manage also excursions to the Palace of Versailles, to the mansion of Monet, to Normandy and so on. During the academic year, I still give lessons for journalism in the Parisian university HEIP.


On the days of week I am available or busy according to the seasons. During the academic year (October to May) I am teaching in university. However, in my company MSP SAS we have a dozen guides who all fulfil the guidelines of quality and expertise I put on myself and my wife Kristina with whom I manage the company. Our guides a available each day of the week.

Louvre with Christian

We had a great time with Christian who managed to show us the Louvre and its highlights in a very limited time. He gave us a perfect overview of the museum and showed us all the highlights. He had very interesting stories to tell and we enjoyed the time with him. He was very flexible and responded to our requests. Thank you Christian for some wonderfull insights!
