Come and discover the 16th district of Paris through the lens of Art Nouveau with our guide Patrick. Art Nouveau, traditionally thought of as the art of Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona, is represented in Paris and France instead by Hector Gumiard. Explore his two major works of art in Paris, the Castel Béranger and the famous Métro stations.
Patrick isn't one to shy away from travel and adventure. "I was lucky enough to travel the world with my job, discover different cultures, and meet incredible people!" he says, after having explored multiple cities across Europe and Asia. On his tours, you may catch more than a surprise or two about Paris. "In fact, it is an everyday experience. I'm a native Parisian, but every day, I continue to discover new things, new secrets about Paris. It's a never-ending story," he laughs. It was his love for Paris that led him to become a guide. "I'm a father and a teacher, and I realized that my passion was to share my knowledge, so I decided to be a guide about one of my passion: Paris!" Patrick chips in. "I enjoy sharing the love and passion I have for my own city, Paris. Its monuments, its history, its gastronomy, its culture, and all of its little secrets. I can't wait to share all of these with you!" "At the end of my tour I always give a virtual bise - two in fact being a good Parisian!" he laughs.

What a fantastic tour! I have been to Paris a few times, but Patrick's tour of the Art Nouveau part of the city was something new. He had a great deal of information and took us to see many hidden gems that showed the different architectural styles. It was a fun escape from Covid Lockdown, and I was able to share the experience with my mother, who is in a different state (& loved the tour!), as if we were once again in Paris together. Thank you, Patrick!

I absolutely loved this tour. I have been to Paris many, many times, but had never visited this area. Who knew there were so many Art Nouveau buildings within a few streets. Patrick has inspired me to go as soon as I can go to Paris again. Thank you for a great tour, Patrick.
