Italy
Take a trip, fly with Austrian Airlines to Italy and you're sure to encounter a whole host of different experiences. You might fancy a sightseeing trip, taking in the ancient ruins (coupled with the very modern buzz) of Rome. Romantics may prefer beautiful Venice, with its winding canals, evocative bridges, not to mention the famous fleet of gondolas. And of course you can always choose to hang out with the fashion elite in the ever-stylish Milan. Remember though, that Italy is not just a city-break destination. The picturesque countryside of rustic Tuscany, the famous leaning tower of Pisa, the superb beaches of the Amalfi Coast, all of these offer something away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Combine any of these with the superb food and drink, fantastic weather and a warm welcome, and Italy is sure to please the most experienced of travellers!

Trattoria
The Trattoria pre-empts demanding guests and their complaints, letting them decide what to eat: If you desire you can put together your own menu. The kitchen can be observed through a glass window, so you can verify that the Trattoria is only using the finest ingredients for its creations.Onion and garlic are rather rare, while citrus is more common as a flavour enhancer. The ambiance is classy, too: The Trattoria occupies two floors of a 17th century palace, while the inside is decorated with much glass, chrome and modern furnishing.

Ferragamo
What made Ferragamo famous? Maybe the heels: Used in the right fashion they could serve as murder weapons. Or the double plateau: Not quite as deadly as the other high heels, but in combination with cobblestone pavement they are still dangerous. Or was it the price: For a whiff of nothing Ferragamo asks 300 Euro, the bags start at 900 Euro, providing enough room for Handy, Make Up and credit line. Whatever Ferragamo got right, today shoe fetishists from all over the world storm into the flagship store in Rome to buy once in their lifetime what the stars are wearing on the red carpet:  Eva Longoria was seen there, Kate Beckinsale wore sun glasses from Ferragamo, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Angelina Jolie joined their ranks and also wore Ferragamo, Ferragamo, Ferragamo. Thus prices don't come as a surprise. By the way, male feet are also served: The shop for men is only one door over and sells classics in leather.

Moa Casa
Who's better, the Swedes or the Italians? Last year most would have said that it depends on your tastes. The Italians have traditionally specialized in baroque knickknacks, lots of brocade and kitsch ribbons, while the Swedes swore by practical, striped and minimalist furniture. Now everything is different, because today everyone agrees: Back to the roots, charming and cosy furniture made of precious wood should help you live the easy life!   Europe is finally united. Each year more than a thousand visitors storm the Moa Casa.  Some are there to evaluate the trends and others to buy the newest in interior design. 200 exhibitors work their customers on 20,000 square meters. If you need a break from all the furniture, you don't need to walk very far: Next to the MOA Casa the MOA Gustibus offers tastes of traditional Italian specialties, and naturally for purchase, too.

First Hotel Roma
The First Luxury Art Hotel Roma. Quite a long name for a hotel. But that doesn't matter since the location of the historic building from the 19th century - right next to the Spanish Steps - is all the more brilliant. And the distances therefore shorter.   There are artworks by famous and aspiring artists hanging on almost every wall in this newly refurbished boutique hotel in the centre of Rome. Every room basically resembles a little gallery. The range of exhibits: portraits, floral or abstract motifs. Which painting will be hanging over the bed makes it all the more exciting.   Also memorable: the life-sized artwork made of metal and stone in the entrance hall of the boutique hotel and the whitewashed cow in the hallway. Don't be frightened by her suddenly looking into your eyes when going around the corner! Enjoy the view from the rooftop garden or the private terrace of the jacuzzi suite. The latter can be specially recommended to honeymooners!
