Lauren Jimerson, PhD

Art Historian and licensed French Guide

I first realized my passion for teaching while guiding visitors through the Vatican in 2009. Since then I have led over a thousand tours. As a lecturer, scholar, and licensed French national guide, my goal is to make art history come to life and to create lasting memories. I do this by turning history into a compelling story, paying attention to your specific interests, encouraging questions, and sparking discussion.

"Lauren’s breadth of knowledge is vast and she makes the tours interesting for both the adults and especially the kids. My kids adore her and the last time we went to Paris the first thing they asked was if we were seeing Lauren. It seems there isn’t a single fact about the City Of Lights that she does not know. We cannot wait to go back and see more of that fabulous city with her!"
