A Classic

The Paris apartment of Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel remains untouched, but you can now catch an up close and personal peek at the life of the beloved designer.

The French Experience has customized a three day Coco Chanel tour ($1750) in which you can retrace the designer's footsteps. The tour includes visits to her favorite lunch spot Cafe Angelina, the Paris teahouse, accommodations at the Hotel Ritz Paris, where she lived from 1934 until her death in 1971, a drive to Saumur, the Loire Valley where she was born, and a day in the seaside resort where her first boutique opened, Deauville.
