Some you may have heard of — and many probably not. From this picturesque little city, it’s crazy easy to explore a huge variety of places loved by both locals and international visitors. We...

Parties last anywhere from a few days to a full week, but you’ll learn on night one why danc...

Sign At Swiss Hotel Pool Asking 'Jewish Guests' To Shower Draws Anger

GENEVA (AP) — Switzerland’s tourism office on Tuesday decried an “unfortunate” incident in which a small Alpine hotel posted a sign asking “Jewish guests” to shower before swimming in the hotel pool.

While attending the International Luxury Travel Market conference in Cannes this year, I asked professionals at leading high-end hotel groups to reveal their picks for the hottest destinations of 2016.
