IN SHORT: A guided tour of Rome’s panoramic terraces, to admire the Eternal City from a bird’s eye view!
IN MORE DETAIL: An unusual tour, skipping from park terraces to scenic squares, from atop monuments to hotel roof gardens, where we can enjoy a drink while observing the centuries that are depicted on the rooftop tiles and the domes of the “capital of the world”. Looking at Rome from above, you can better understand many things about the Eternal City: you can count the seven hills, recognize the medieval quarters from modern ones, that clench the bend of the Tiber river. You’ll notice the large villas and the long strip of green trees along the Tiber. Then the eyes go to the huge buildings of contemporary Rome: the state buildings of Capital Rome, and some important pieces of contemporary architecture, interlaced in this city of so many souls.
