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!

Dell `Orologio
Once the Globe theatre was the centre of the action, today the Teatro Dell'Orologio is rocking the boat: This small theatre has left the mainstream and is as off-Broadway as you can be. Far beyond classical tragedy, the theatre is experimenting to such an extent that critics are left speechless. You might recognize the plays, but you will never have seen them like this: Ionesco, Genet, Becket and Maeterlinck are all rediscovered in strange ways. Shakespeare would be delighted and Brecht overjoyed: The Teatro dell'Orologia lacks the technical sophistication of the great stages, but its dedication to the art that makes this theatre so special. Valentino Orfeo is the artistic director, but other directors also play their parts. To be there or not to be? Poor Yorick would have had no doubt!

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. Double room starting at 160,- Euro a night.

Club L'Isola
Naturists beware: You should wear something to get in - the L'Isola doesn't expose itself. It won't serve any skin nor anything else meat related. The eatery is entirely vegetarian, including vegan and macrobiotic options. The furnishing, with a lot of wood and warm colours, goes along with the organic food, such as Polpettine Vegetali (vegetarian dumplings), vegetarian pasta and healthy salads. The restaurant is a typical example of relaxed Italian vegetarianism: Fish is a staple on the menu, and while most vegetarians object to calling fish eaters by their name, it demonstrates that Italians are, as a general rule, oblivious to dogmas.

weTAD Store
A concept store should have a clear concept. The weTAD founders knew from the beginning that they wanted to open a flower shop. Still, you have to put them into something and so they also started to sell vases. And once there is such a nice smell, why not sell a few beautifully scented cosmetics along with it? O.k. And a hairdresser would also go well with the cosmetics. Wearing artistic creations on your head, why not put some on the wall, too? Oh, you look tired, how about an espresso in our café? Or just lay down for a bit on our sofas here, which, by the way, are also for sale. This is how it probably happened, because today the weTAD Concept Store sells just about anything: Flowers, modern art, furniture, coffee and night lotions. And, of course, fashion, preferably from Vivienne Westwood and Alexander Wang. Never seen anything like that? Then it's time to take a look into the weTAD Concept Store, which has everything except for a concept.
