Falling in love with Rome is easy, you just need to walk through the streets of the historic center paved with cobblestones, get lost in the alleys admiring the ancient buildings and the splendid squares, among the most beautiful in the world. But for the most memorable views of the city, you need to scrutinise it from above and to caress its silhouette with your eyes.
You can test your knowledge by identifying monuments and churches from afar, marveling at the sight of St Peter’s Dom and tasting Rome’s finest cuisine, better if refreshed by the Ponentino summer breeze.
The panoramic venues – with or without terrace – are mostly hosted by hotels and museums located in the historic center. The proposal is varied: from the spectacular starred restaurants to the more informal venues with a fusion proposal, from the elegant rooftops to modern lounge bars perfect for aperitifs and cocktails under the stars.
Here are the best terraces with a view to choose from.
