Roman Rooftop Revelry: Top Spots for Apertivi with a View



When in Rome, doing as the Romans do means enjoying that beloved early evening tradition of aperitivo - sipping a pre-dinner cocktail or glass of wine accompanied by light snacks and beverages. And what better way to take in this quintessential ritual than from a scenic Roman rooftop with an iconic view? Here are some of the top rooftop lounges in the Eternal City where you can savor an Aperol spritz or refreshing white wine while taking in jaw-dropping panoramas.

Terrazza del Pantheon As its name suggests, this petite rooftop terrace offers breathtaking views overlooking the historic Pantheon and the lively Piazza della Rotonda. Part of the luxury Pantheon Iconic Rome Hotel, it provides a front-row seat to the comings and goings around one of Rome's most famous landmarks. The vibe is chic yet relaxed, with just a handful of tables available - so make reservations in advance. Drinks and snacks are pricey but the view is priceless.

La Terrazza - Bulgari Hotel The fashionable Bulgari Hotel is home to one of Rome's most coveted rooftop destinations. La Terrazza offers 360-degree vistas stretching from the Botanical Gardens to the grand St. Peter's Basilica dome and historic city center.

Tired after visiting the Vatican, thinking  about a place to rest and a cool refreshment on a large roof top with view of The Vatican colonnade and the  Mausoleum of Augustus, might be the right time to visit La Terazza di Roma at Hotel  Les Etoiles. Just a short walk from the Vatican.
