Cobblestone streets, stunning architecture, and culture-filled attractions are just a few of the things that landed the following seven cities on our list of the perfect cities to fall in love in this fall.
Hosting a gathering with family or friends for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas or New Years?
To describe Labour of Love would prove a personal labor in futility. But what I can say is that it is a film richly shot, beautifully written and acted so organically, I simply felt overwhelmed by its message for days after viewing it.
Picasso is the standard by which all other artists are measured: first, of course, for pure talent, but not far behind for showmanship, the love affairs, the extended and often fractious family, the tortured women he left behind, the control he exerted and now, for the photographs of his life and work.
This is one of those dishes that, on the one hand, tastes precisely of its ingredients: onions, anchovies, wheat and olive oil.
If Venice is a dream state, then a new book about the city built on a lagoon is its vivid interpretation.

Not every destination around the globe will deliver the same level of accommodations for your travel dollar. That's why we decided to launch a new series to expose just how much bang for your buck you're actually getting on your trip.
The story of Nabat is about much more than what we're told on the big screen. It's the story of all mothers, of all women who long for a place, and simply cannot let go of it.
Theeb is a jewel, deserving of its Orizzonti Award for Best Director prized to Naji Abu Nowar in Venice and more. But Theeb is also the kind of film that grabs a hold of you and doesn't let go.
If there is a lesson to be learned from the nine short films that blend to create the magnificent Words with Gods it is that organized religion is not the most direct way to communicate with our higher being.
Don't come to Melbourne expecting over-the-top displays to deal with the tragedy at hand. The film is perfect for those of us who recognize that most of life, even in moments of drama, is lived in shades of grey, not black and white.
