We know where upscale American travelers are going this summer, and apparently they want pasta and wine. The top-booked destination is eternal favorite Italy, with European destinations dominating the list, as well as a couple of other international favorites – South Africa and close neighbor Canada. Europe is particularly appealing this year, due to a relatively strong U.S. dollar against both the euro and British pound.
