Since 1998, Louis Vuitton City Guides, which are inspired by the nomadic spirit of the brand, include the most interesting places to visit for different world cities and extremely impressive views from cities that are worth to see. To date, Louis Vuitton has published catalogue of 30 cities in print version. Also, the Maison released the Louis Vuitton City Guide App last year. Thus, catalogue of 30 cities is available in both digital and print version.

Each City Guide features the most exclusive views of the city. Besides the views from the cities, these guides include essential lists that give ideas about the cities. For instance, Ottoman art expert Serdar Gülgün contributed to the content of The Istanbul City Guide, whilst the photos were taken by Thierry Ardouin. The cover of The Istanbul City Guide is lilac, the color of the city. Among the essentials for the 24 hours in Istanbul, there are options such as tasting the delicacies in the city’s local markets and shopping in ancient shops. You can visit the brand’s website in order to see 30 cities from Amsterdam to Venice, and you can download the app or shop the printed version, if desired.
