This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the Prince de Galles Hotel in Paris, France. We’ll discuss the aftermath of the terrible tragedy in Manchester and what it means to global travel and security. Simon Calder, Travel Correspondent for The Independent, talks about some of the worst, and sometimes most unfortunate, tourism slogans and marketing campaigns from destinations around the world. We’ll take a look at the history of the Prince de Galles, which was first constructed in 1928 on the Avenue George V. (It was named after the Prince of Wales Edward VIII in honor of his annual visits to to Paris.) Hotel historian Andreas Augustin tells us some great stories about the hotel, including one about the legendary Marlene Dietrich. Plus, American expat Catherine Down (Editor of Ciao Down) and French journalist Candice Mahout from BFM TV will join us on the air. There’s all of this and more as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the Prince de Galles Hotel in Paris.
