A rooftop with wonderful views, to get away from the city chaos and touch the sky. The Capital is even more beautiful from the top, especially while sipping on an excellent cocktail.
After opening in London in 2002, the Japanese restaurant Zuma conquered Miami, Dubai, New York and Hong Kong. It has been a success in Rome, partly due to the exceptional location on top of Palazzo Fendi. The fourth floor is dedicated to the actual restaurant and the fifth, to the roof top, for a pre-dinner drink and a selection of small dishes for which Zuma is famous. You can have a spritz at happy hour – but revisited with Asian ingredients and sake – or choose from a signature cocktail list or international classics with a twist. Along with the drink you can order from the menu. While the waiting list for the restaurant is long, you can go to the rooftop without a reservation.
Lounge bar with cocktails and gourmet pizza by starred chef Riccardo Di Giacinto right on the rooftop of the new Rinascente in via del Tritone. The roof terrace is like a garden over Rome where you can try spirits and ingredients from Mediterranean countries. Enjoy a Martini Dry maraschino, olives brine, Franciacorta Volevo dirty Spritz, and order a Pasta Madre pizza with Cacio cheese and pepper and arrabbiata, fried pizza dough topped ‘Roman style’, or a savoury maritozzo. The great thing: the kitchen is always open, no closing times.
The rooftops nestled among the buildings in the capital are many. But there is only one in the middle of a six-hectare park on top of Monte Mario. At only ten minutes from the centre, the only sound you can hear is that of the trees and the chirping of birds. The Rome Cavalieri is a true “resort” in the heart of one of the most famous cities in the world, and its outside roof terraces are legendary thanks to the breathtaking views of the eternal city on different levels. At the Tiepolo Terrace, on the ground floor, in front of the pool just outside the lounge, you can enjoy a dream-like drink. Ask for their Martini, awarded as the best in town.
The most beautiful and unusual views over Piazza del Popolo, climb to the Pincio Terrace, in the middle of the beautiful park of Villa Borghese. Don’t settle for the usual beer kiosks and stop at Casina Valadier, a neoclassic villa in the heart of the park. At Cafe del Pincio, on the ground floor, you can stroll in the garden, while on the first floor, at the Chill Bar you can comfortably sit on the terrace. Book at the Belvedere Terrace, the one with the most amazing view. International mixology classics and a drink list, Le Mille Bolle, dedicated to champagne cocktails. You can go for dinner at the Vista restaurant, offering Mediterranean cuisine.
On the top floor of the building that houses the Capitoline museums is Terrazza Caffarelli, a café with kitchen – perfect for a relaxing lunch or a spritz after climbing the stairs leading to the Capitoline Hill. It closes at 7.00 pm!
