When In Rome – Seven Stunning Rooftop Bars You Have To Visit In The Eternal City

James Fenton

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.
