For me, making people discover my favorite food and places is like reliving that first moment of amazement when I just arrived in France/Paris… it makes me remember how lucky I am to live here and call this city my home now.

A City for Her. Why Paris?
Silvia Moran Berrout. I came to Paris after I completed my master studies in Rennes (Britanny) and my internship in Marseille. I wanted to get a job to pay my student loan and to get the opportunity to travel around Europe…. it was maybe unexpected for me because I’ve heard so much about negative things about living in Paris from my peers at work…. I completely fell in love with this city and all its corners, history, people, even the metro!! and public transportation that I absolutely love, even if it’s not perfect (I don’t like to drive so I am very happy getting around so easily). Paris for me is now the most beautiful city in the world and one of my passions is to share all it has to offer, old and new, to each and everyone that is interested in getting to know this city better ?

A City for Her. What do you do now?
Silvia Moran Berrout. I just changed the activity of the company that I created a year ago from Payment Consulting to Traveling and Guiding Tourist services and I am so excited! I have an EMBA from Rennes Business School and I’ve worked mostly on big companies like banks and payment and consulting companies. I decided to give myself a try and go on my own on payments consulting for a while but I knew that my true passion was elsewhere and I went for it! I want to give my visitors a wonderful and memorable experience traveling and visiting my home city! For a lot of people, come to Paris is a lifelong dream so I want them to have a memory that they’ll cherish forever!
