Hello,
I'm going to be traveling to Monaco but we have a layover in Paris. We want to do some shopping -- are the prices for designer bags (ie Louis Vuitton) cheaper in Paris than Monaco, or about the same? What about the VAT refund situation?

Thanks!

Euro prices are exactly the same across all European nations so it doesn't matter where you buy from. VAT however does vary from country to country. You can check that via google and compare. Just remember, you don't get the entire VAT back- a small portion of it goes to processing fees.
