Since the movie Coco Before Chanel didn't get the best reviews, maybe the best way to walk in Mademoiselle Chanel's quilted shoes is to travel to Paris on the French Experience Coco Before Chanel Tour. Included in the 2-night $1,750+ trip is two nights at the Ritz, where Chanel lived from 1934 to 1971. For an extra charge, you can stay in the Ritz's Coco Chanel suite (below), which has been restored to the grandeur of Coco's day. Also included in the tour is breakfast, roundtrip transportation from and to the airport, entrance to the Arts Decoratifs and lunch at the Angelina tea house, where Coco used to sup. Be sure to leave room for the hot chocolate!
