Rome is a city built on seven hills.This means that there are any number of elevated spots where you get get a sweeping view over the eternal city’s many domes and towers.
A particular favorite (though not technically one of Rome’s seven hills) is the Giancolo hill, above the neighborhood of Trastevere. From this panoramic place you can spot most of Rome’s main sights from baroque churches to ancient ruins.
On the edge of the leafy Villa Borghese find the the balcony on Pincio hill and look out over the Piazza del Popolo all the way to Saint Peter’s Basilica.
Wearing your sky high stilettos? You don’t have to climb a hill for a romantic city view. Let an elevator whisk you to a rooftop for some canoodling with a view. Settle into a comfy loveseat at the top of the Hotel Minvera for the best vantage point of the ancient Pantheon.
