London Hot Spots
Since its inception in 2003, London’s Frieze Week has acted as the unofficial start to the British capital’s cultural season. This year, it runs from October 16-20.

Indagare partnered with 1stdibs.com, the premier antiques marketplace
website, to provide tips on how to best navigate the fair—and London—during this exciting season.Check out the guide on 1stdibs.com and read about more of this fall’s cultural events, as reported by Indagare’s London-based contributor Elena Bowes, from a performance of Madame Butterfly to an exhibition celebrating pearls at the V&A.

Weekend Getaway: Hudson Valley
Free-associate…Hudson Valley…go: school of painting, the Vanderbilts, fall foliage, hippies, Chelsea Clinton, antiquing, farm-to-table. But in reality, the massive region, spanning both sides of the Hudson river, is far more complex than the associations that readily
Just Back From... Lausanne
With idyllic views of the Alps and Lake Geneva, Lausanne has long been a favorite vacation destination among well-heeled Swiss and French.

Spotlight: Travel by Passion
All too often, travel plans fall into place based around such factors as direct flights, weather conditions and family vacation schedules.

Just Back From... Fez
Fez’s medina, a mysterious labyrinth of narrow alleyways, is one of the world’s largest vehicle-free regions (the majority of goods are carried by donkeys and mules). The district is dotted with centuries-old infrastructure like bathhouses and water fountains that continue to be used to this day. Indagare’s Nicole Martin
recently returned from the lesser-visited Moroccan city and reported, “as I moved deeper into the medina it felt as though I was traveling back in time.” Read Indagare’s destination report on Fez, including tips on where to stay, eat and shop, and contact our bookings department for help planning a trip.

City News: Venice in the Fall
The exhibitions in the Arsenale and Giardini for this year’s Biennale (running through November 24) are drawing culture aficionados in record numbers, but another work of art is also luring visitors to the quiet streets of San Polo. And the luckiest of guests are spending the night. Housed in a spectacular, 16th-century palazzo, the new Aman Venice is a masterpiece of restoration. No wonder then that the Biennale cognoscenti has embraced it as the new hot spot for
art-talk gatherings. There’s much to discuss this year, including the Rudolf Stingel solo show at Palazzo Grassi; Ai Weiwei’s Sacred installation in Sant’Antonin church; and Catalan artist Antoni Tàpies’ works at Palazzo Fortuny. Read Indagare’s coverage of Venice Now, including a Q&A with Biennale curator Massimiliano Gioni a review of the new Aman and a round-up of our favorite restaurants.
Member Feedback: Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka has been through a lot of recent hardship: the 2004 tsunami greatly affected the island, and a 26-year long civil war raged until 2009. Despite all this, the tropical nation, about 18 miles off the southeastern coast of India, has slowly, quietly been transforming itself, thanks to dedicated rebuilding efforts and significant
growth. (Its southern resort of Kalpitiya was featured on the exclusive list of the New York Times’ 46 Places to Go in 2013.) An Indagare insider recently visited Sri Lanka and shared with us why she predicts the up-and-coming destination is “the next Bali.” Read More
