Lo Zodiaco 

Situated on Monte Mario, standing some 140 meters above ground, Lo Zodiaco offers possibly the best view over the Italian capital of all the city’s rooftop bars. Open for over 50 years now, this is a stunning place for a coffee, cocktail, classic Italian aperitivo or dinner in a truly Roman setting.

Caffè Capitolino 

Head to the top floor of the Musei Capitolini to find this rooftop oasis open to visitors day and night. Higher prices match the bar’s elevated position, but you’ll likely forgive them when you see the view over the city which rivals the best of them.
