Rome Rooftop

Rome on top: A rooftop tour of the city

Rome is steeped in history, hence the moniker “The Eternal City”, but trying to soak in everything the Italian capital has to offer can be tiring at the best of times, especially given the scorching summer temperatures and sheer volume of sights to feast your eyes upon. Sometimes, you just need to find a spot with a good view so you can relax and take it all in, usually with a cheeky Aperol Spritz and a few snacks to savour on the side. Luckily, there are an abundance of rooftop restaurants and bars in Rome which cater to every need, whilst providing a stunning backdrop to whatever treat you’re indulging in, whether it be a scoop of gelato, a morning espresso, or your dozenth pizza of the trip.

Gaze long enough and you’ll spot camouflaged critters waiting patiently for their next meal. Don’t worry it’s not you. Even if you’re lucky enough to spot a placid nurse shark or two, your flesh is just not appealing. Which, from a shark, is frankly the biggest compliment you’ll get.
