Rome

Once known as the Capital of the Modern World, Rome is still a highly visited destination for travelers of all ages. Walk down the streets that Julius Caesar walked and visit the baths that citizens and commoners alike frequently used. Explore the ruins of the Roman Empire, such as the Colosseum, or marvel in the statues and art that the Golden Age of the Renaissance produced. You can even travel to another country, without ever traveling outside Rome! The Vatican also boasts of many sights to see, including St. Peters Basilica. When in Rome, do as the Romans do, and indulge in world-famous Italian cuisine, and taste the fine wines that only the Italian vineyards can offer! Choose to fly with eurowings to Rome and experience the vacation of a lifetime!

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.

Aroma
It didn't take long until the Aroma, the new restaurant on the roof-top terrace of the hotel in the Palazzo Manfredo in Rome attracted the local gourmets. The unrestricted view on the Colosseum and Domus Aurea was probably yet another reason for that.   In the kitchen, local hero Guiseppe die Iroio wields the sceptre. He plants the herbs for his dishes himself, to be smelled at on the terrace: thyme, rosemary, sage and mint. On the menu it takes the following form: medallions of calf with white truffles, twisted pasta with turbot, tuna tartare wit ginger and date soufflé or figs soufflé. His cuisine has already been rewarded the Five-Star-Diamond-Award from the renowned American Academy of Hospitality Sciences.   Below-stairs, in the wine cellar, 300 vintage wines are storing under sommelier's Martin Pechev ward. These demand an appropriate appearance from the male guests: long trousers and shirt!

Saddlers Union
Not all ways lead directly to the goal: the Roman Micaela Calabresi Marconi made a detour and studied law. Only afterwards she was certain: she needs something where she can build and maintain relationships, a job in communication. Armani, Pucci, Zegna and Versace crossed her way, and she eventually opened an own event agency. But that wasn't enough. At the peak of the economic crisis Marconi took over Saddlers Union and together with her brother Paolo she dusted off the forgotten brand that specialises in historic, handmade leather articles.   The new address? Via Margutta 11, the street of craftsmen, similar to Montmartre in Paris. Federico Fellini had his residence here - and for Marconi it was the ideal spot for a Saddlers Union boutique.   Today only those who know where they want to go will find Saddlers Union. A door plate is missing - it's a cosy, private house with a workshop where favourite pieces can be repaired on the spot if need be. Marconi found her calling.

Lazio vs. Inter
In Milan, Inter and the AC are at war in the San Siro, in Rome Lazio fights against Roma in the Stadio Olimpico. The four teams have one thing in common: They are all brilliant, at least from an Austrian point of view. Inter brought home the Champions' League with its proven defensive technique, AC Milan got that sought-after title seven times in total, Roma is playing with Francesco Totti, who won the World Cup in 2006, and Lazio counters with the Argentinean master Mauro Matías Zárate.Real fans should not miss the popular derby in the Stadio Olimpico. In contrast to some of the players, the audience is anything but defensive, and quickly boils over when the blood is stirring. Small advice: If you buy a ticket for one of the popular games, make sure you to sit with the Roma fans, not with Lazio - unless you tend towards the extreme political right.
