Last summer I traveled to the Almafi coast of Italy and thanks to a sweet friend who sent me with LUXE city guides, I knew where to go.

When you have spent time and money to travel around the world, the worst feeling is to get there and not know where to eat or go out at night or where to find the best shops.

These city guides are discrete and attractive and there is no fluff and no pictures. If a particular restaurant is good but the wait staff is terrible, it will tell you that the food is excellent and worth dealing with the moody service.

The New York Times felt the same way, “Among the jet set, LUXE City Guides have achieved near cult status for their exacting, opinionated and deliciously bitchy takes on cities including Hanoi, Rome,….and New York.”

You can order them individually or create your own “Bespoke Boxes” where you choose your box design and the guides that go inside- perfect for the one who has everything.
