Louis Vuitton, a real empire of the fashion and of the French elegance, launched in 1998 the City Guides. Am I really the only one who hasn’t heard about them yet?
I discovered them a few weeks ago during my stay in Paris. I was mainly entangled to know if these city guides were really essential or if it was only a Marketing blow from the Maison. Indeed, a bag’s store which wants to be a travel agency … Strange, isn’t it? Discover my review.
I immediately went to the Saint-Germain-des-prés’s store to buy the Parisian copy. As usual, the crew was super welcoming although I just bought a book.
The books are divided into 7 parts. For each of them, we find a selection of addresses chosen carefully by independent authors, personalities, natives, etc… It allows having an overview of the city and the atmosphere of the multiple districts.
You are probably thinking: “Louis Vuitton who makes a tourist guide? Everything should be extremely expensive!” YOU WRONG! They adapt their selection for every kind of budget. For example, we find “La Sandwicherie” in Miami which is one of my favorite places and where you can eat for around $12. This place is so good but I’ll talk about it later.
This book is a concentrated of all that you have to see, try and visit if you want to live an experience of the most complete.
You probably understood but a few days later I bought the Parisian one, I couldn’t resist and ordered the Miami copy as well.
