After its success in Paris (www.airbnb.com/experiences/288575?locale=en), here is the version for Toulouse of Architecture for All!! The keys to understand architecture easily. Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the beauties surrounding you during your daily life? This amazing cathedral in the center of the city, you don't know anything about? This building you are seeing over and over again without having any clue of when it was built? Why it was built this way? We are all surrounded by amazing work of arts but unable to read them, to understand them. An anonymous space through which we don't know anything about. What is the solution? Studying architecture ? Possible but not very tempting. Learn everything about one single monument or building? You can do it but would you be able to reproduce the experience for every single monument? What if there was another way? I will give you the main keys on how to read architecture yourself, the main styles of the city and how to decrypt them yourself, long after the end of the visit. Architecture will slowly become a game for you, an investigation in your free time, a new taste I will help you to acquire throughout Toulouse!
With a diploma as a Tour Guide from the renowned Grand Sud Tourism School of Toulouse, I was formed to understand and share with anyone the history of Arts, from it’s very beginning to our days. Having along experience of guiding people of various cultures in Montmartre, on the Eiffel Tower and around Paris, I know the good tricks to get the best of every moment in your Experience to make it unforgettable !
