By Paul Knowles (first published in The United Church Observer)

When the Vienna Tourist Board’s Helena Hartlauer told some lunching and munching media about a new hotel in her Austrian city, no one was surprised. A travel rep promoting an accommodation facility?

By Martha Chapman

First-Class Rail Vacations by Monograms: From north to south and heel to toe, Italy delivers ancient cities, seaside villages and rolling vineyards. It's home to the Roman Empire and birthplace to the Renaissance. A place where you can stand in the presence of Michelangelo's David and da Vinci's Last Supper. Italy is also home to more UNESCO World Heritage cultural sites than any other country on the globe. This is a place that needs to be explored, ventured through and seen.
