Cosa farete

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 made by some of the world’s most acclaimed artists. In order for the guests to be able to better appreciate the experience, I offer semi-private tours limited to 6 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 etc but do you really know their lives and why they are geniuses? We’ll dive into the lives of the world’s 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 semi-private tour, you’ll be armed with the information and history that you’ll need to appreciate the 7,000+ paintings and sculptures on display at the third most visited museum in the USA.

PRIVATE GROUP available: up to 10 guests, with group discount!

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.

Excellent tour! She really brought the art to life and helped us connect with each piece in a way I’d never experienced. We came in with very little background and she provided the perfect level of context and perspective to help us engage on a deeper level. Highly recommend!

We had the best time on our tour! Tosca is a knowledgeable and engaging storyteller. We learned so much and had a blast! Tosca zoomed in on a number of key pieces of art and brought them to life. In addition to learning how to appreciate each masterpiece, we learned about the artist, the historical context, and the painting techniques of the time period. Art novices and experienced connisouers alike would enjoy this tour! Definitely one of the best ways to enjoy a visit to the National Art Gallery. Highly recommend!

This was a great tour! Not only was Tosca super-knowledgable about the works we viewed, she provided additional material that added extra insight into the paintings and artists. The tour was well organized, and two hours seemed to fly by! I wanted more :)

Tosca was amazing! Not only does it feel posh to have a private guide escort you through the gallery, but Tosca had such a depth of knowledge of the subject paintings that really drew you in. If you like to nerd out to art, she can hook you up! It was really a great experience. Time flew by, the 2 hours felt like we were barely there!
