As the old saying goes, Rome wasn't built in a day but with this handy guide to the most stunning rooftops in the Eternal City you can build the perfect Roman itinerary in just a few minutes.

Anyone who has been to Rome before will know that there's an insane amount of walking involved so resting your weary legs over a cocktail and some food is not just recommended, it's pretty much a must.

Take your pick from any of the following or, even better, try to tick them all off in one trip. Enjoy!

1. Posh Terrace

Don't let the name fool you. Posh Terrace is actually a rooftop.

The luxurious setting can be found at Palazzo Naiada and comes with a stunning infinity pool. Imagine sipping cocktails in the sun next to this?

2. Hotel Forum

Not far from the historic Roman Forum (hence the name), the American Bar roof garden provides stunning views of the city. Best sampled as the sun goes down.

3. Aroma Restaurant

Trying to find a close-up view of the Collosseum? Look no further.

Located at the Palazzo Manfredi, the menu is a tad pricey but 'tis worth it for the photos.

4. Hotel Minerva

Exquisite 360 degree views of Rome can be taken in from this centrally-located hotel, not far from the Pantheon.

5. Les Etoiles

This cosy terrace bar offers spectacular views of The Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica.

6. Hotel Raphael

A vegetarian restaurant located right in the centre of town. Come for the sumptuous menu and stay for the views.

7. La Terrasse

Arguably the best view of the Vatican can be found from here.

You couldn't ask for a better location to round up your trip to the Eternal City.
