Wallpaper* guides to hip cities, from Athens to Vienna
Trendy travelers who are more captivated by a city's buzz than by its museums will like the new Wallpaper* City Guides, compiled in part by the editors of the fashion and design magazine the guides are named after. The pocket-sized guides, available for 40 cities from Athens to Vienna, spotlight the hip and modern. They're geared for short trips — business or leisure — and focus on a city's iconic buildings, where to stay and which rooms to book, what to do in 24 hours and where to shop and spa. The books cost $8.95. They're available at Barnes & Noble and other bookstores, by calling (800) 759-0190 or by visiting www.phaidon.com.
