Programma

*TIME REQUESTS ARE POSSIBLE, JUST ASK*

Instead of wandering purposelessly in the National Gallery of Art, I will lead you into an in-depth visit of the museum’s history and its masterpieces by some of the world’s most acclaimed artists. In order for the guests to better appreciate the experience, this semi-private tour is limited to 8 people. I bring you an extensive knowledge about European Art history having studied and lived between Paris, Italy and London (UK).
You have heard of Raphael, Da Vinci, Titian, Rembrandt, Monet, Van Gogh but do you really know their lives and why they are geniuses? We’ll dive into the lives of the most famous painters as we wander the rooms of the National Gallery. If none of the following names ring a bell to you, we’ll make sure that they do by the end of the tour.
The National Gallery of Art houses a collection of paintings from the 1300 onwards, there is no shortage of choice. We’ll go from the only Da Vinci painting in America before fast-forwarding to Monet’s “Japanese Footbridge” to witness the different styles and evolutions in art. During this visit, you’ll be armed with the information and history that you’ll need to appreciate the works of art on display at the National Gallery.

PRIVATE GROUP available: up to 15 guests, with group discount! Great for groups, great for teams

Hello,

I am Tosca, French/Italian and passionate about Art History and cultures from a young age.

I have given tours in London, Tuscany and Paris before moving to Washington D.C.

I hold 2 degrees in Art History and I am particularly fond of Renaissance and Italian Art. I developed my professional experience by obtaining a Master’s degree in London in Arts & Cultural Management and working in London’s galleries. I am on a mission to stimulate and inspire people through art and history, to learn and discuss together. When you join one of my tours, it’s more than just storytelling. I’ll share with you a mix of historical information, my favorite art anecdotes and surprising details about art history to make this tour as engaging as it can be.
I’ll also happily share tips to make your stay in D.C. a great experience.

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our walk through the National Gallery with Tosca. She was so knowledgeable and picked the pieces to highlight very strategically. We loved learning new facts about these important works of art. Her descriptions and stories of key pieces were engaging, and really enhanced our experience.

This tour was such a pleasure and Tosca was so knowledgable. The group was a small friendly group and Tosca made us all feel welcome and engaged with all of us to experience the art work and ask questions.

Tosca explained 6 centuries of Western art by focusing on highly iconic images representing major movements and themes and tying it all together. Great insights and detail interwoven with fascinating stories of the lives of the artists and their patrons. Highly recommend!

Tosca connected me with the artwork of the National Gallery. Her stories and visual references became memory aids assisting me still to recall the artist, their work and interesting tidbits pertaining to each particular piece. Her method of presentation was for me akin to flash cards in an art history class. The time passed quickly-far too quickly. Upon my next visits to the gallery I secretly wished I had Tosca by my side teaching as I looked at each intriguing piece. Not only is she well traveled, educated, and knowledgeable but she is also very kind, personable and soft hearted. It touched me to see her connect with each person in our mixed group. I found this Airbnb guided tour to be my favorite ever because of our sweet and gentle teacher from across the seas. Tosca-you are an Angel!

I can't recommend this higher! The personal service was wonderful and my 8 year old was even engaged! The subject matter was strong, but the insights provided made the museum sing!
