Rome

Set among its Seven Hills, is the city of Rome, Italy. When you fly with Austrian Airlines to Rome and step back in time, you also confront a very modern culture as well. You may stroll through the city and view the Spanish Steps, or the Pantheon, turn the corner and shop for a lovely pair of Italian pumps. As you turn another corner, the narrow street opens up to a wide piazza, filled with cafes and ancient fountains. To the west, across the River Tiber, sits St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican. A day spent at the Vatican Museum is worthwhile, be quiet as you enter the Sistine Chapel. Further south along the river is Trastevere, teeming with nightlife and wonderful restaurants.

Portrait Suites
The latest fad in the boutique sector is called townhouse, and many cities jump onto it without looking twice. The Lungarno chain, too, was consumed by the heat of the moment. Yet it did decide on the right location for it: Old townhouses are not difficult to find, the only problem being that every square meter is occupied by a fashion boutique of one type or another. What's the big deal, they thought, then we'll put the Lungarno Portrait Suites into the upper floors of the Ferragamo flagship. A feature that will appeal to fashionistas, in particular: Right from the bed into the changing rooms - that's quite an innovation! Thus the design would meet great scrutiny, and Michele Bonan excelled himself. Classy became super classy and luxurious super de luxe, especially in the penthouse with its own Sauna and terrace. For the view alone, however, you don't have to declare personal bankruptcy. You can also enjoy it in the rooftop lounge with a view onto the Spanish Steps. Doubles starting at 400 Euro a night.

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).

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.

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.
