Gianicolo- Gianicolo Hill or ‘Janiculum’ is a sight also popular with tourists and locals alike. It’s known as the best panoramic view of Rome. From this site, you can see nearly all the quintessential Roman monuments, (The Vatican, Pzza. Venezia, Castel St. Angelo, etc.) We recommend for those coming during New Year’s or other Italian celebrations to come here because the best firework displays are showcased here!
St. Peter’s Basilica- The view from the Cupola in Saint Peter’s Basilica is the most iconic view of the Vatican. Overlooking Bernini’s Piazza, tourists become instantly awestruck with the beautifully lit surroundings during sunset. We recommend taking one of our evening tours of the Vatican so you can see this sacred city in all its glory. Click on this link for more information: Finding the Right Vatican Experience
Monte Mario- Just off of Vialetto degli innamorati (which translates literally as: the little road of those in love) you’ll see one of the best panoramic views of the city. The nice thing about Monte Mario is that it’s not so well known by tourists so you’re quite often guaranteed a great view without the crowds.
Imàgo Restaurant- Located in the Hassler Hotel on top of the Spanish Steps, this fashionable hotel can boast about their panoramic landscapes. The restaurant is encompassed by glass walls which makes this ‘bella vista’ visible from all angles. The presentation of their food is a work of art which compliments your stunning view of the Eternal City.
Atlante Star- Having been voted as the best rooftop bar by several websites, the Atlante Star has an unimaginable view of Saint Peter’s Basilica. The views are incredible also during the day but at night there is a better more social atmosphere. This bar is high-scale with excellent food and elegant fixtures but it comes with a costly price tag. But it’s the ideal place for those who want a fabulous meal to match their fabulous view.
