A venerable institution (founded over 130 years ago) and one of the chicest names in the business (although the competition is string down the Champs Elysées) Lancel has its flagship store here ready to wow you with its luxury leather goods.
Yep, that means bags. Big bags, small bags, handbags, luggage. Ladies will be in paradise here. Gentlemen might find a key fob or wallet to keep them distracted.
Now trying to shake off its slightly dusty image, Lancel now has French movie legend Isabelle Adjani in its ads and even designing some its bags. Some might say that's it's difficult to tell which of them looks more leathery these days...
Once you arrive in Paris, stop by the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau for tourist information about the city (museums, events, attractions....). You can also book your hotel and plan daytrips, an evening at a Cabaret, or a trip to the amusement park. Paris Visite cards and other museum passes are also available for sale.
