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!

Maxxi Museum
It took ten years, various culture secretaries and 150 million euro to complete the eccentric building designed by star architect Zaha Hadid. She especially put emphasis on the interaction between glass, fair-faced concrete and metal. Once again it becomes obvious: it's not only art, but also architecture which is maximal here in the Flaminio quarter. The 27.000 square metres of the area with its 20 metres high entrance hall forms an open, urban space and guides the visitors along curved walls and interwoven levels on unexpected paths through five galleries. In the well-lit museum (thanks to the glass roof) we find the two museums MAXXI art and MAXXI architecture. The house is devoted to preserve and conserve the cultural heritage by means of exhibitions, workshops, performances and (educational) projects. But more: it offers space for experimenting and exploring modern aesthetic contents. Tickets for 11 euro (reductions possible).

The Inn
Tales from the crypt: The Inn at the Forum Romanum has skeletons in its closet and is proud of it. More about that later, let`s first take a look into the 14 rooms: All of them are furnished differently, some with fire place, some with a canopy bed, and some even with access to the wonderful garden. All have the usual plasma display, exquisite toiletries and W-Lan, all are very elegant and have air-condition. You won`t need the latter when you go into the basement.However: Behind the reception there`s a staircase leading into the crypt, so you don`t even have to step outside to literally breathe Roman history. You should still venture outside, though, since the boutique hotel has neither restaurant nor room service. It doesn`t matter, since it`s located in the centre, only bite away from the best restaurants.

L'Olfattorio Bar
Attention: There is nothing to drink at the bar - in the L'Olfattorio Bar you are served neither whiskey nor beer, but scents. This is how it works: Go into the bar and order Eau de Toilette. Then pick the scent that you like most.The perfumes on offer are from small manufacturers, and you can test them for free. When you like a scent, you receive the address in Rome where you can buy that perfume. The innovative business concept works, because it allows small producers to introduce themselves and to compete against the big ones.Aside from perfumes you can also purchase scented candles and all sorts of other olfactory delights. Just don't stay for too long, you might get dizzy from all those scents.

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.
