La Terrazza del Cesàri: a rooftop heaven

La Terrazza dei Cesàri Rome Rooftop

Float on a luxurious roof garden overlooking Piazza di Pietra

Imagine church bells ringing, pink-tinted skies, and the unmissable view of Roman rooftops. Add a drink or a glass of wine laying down in comfy sofas in a splendid setting overlooking one of Rome’s most unique piazzas, and tell me “perfection” isn’t the word that comes to mind. If this isn’t the way to indulge in la dolce vita, I don’t know what is.

From breakfast to aperitivo and after dinner drinks, the recently renovated La Terrazza del Cesàri should definitely be on your list of “experiences in Rome”. Not just because it’s located in the oldest hotel of the Italian capital – founded in 1787 – but because it’s a hidden retreat from which you can admire the hustle and bustle of Rome tucked away in an exclusive setting. And with its harmonious design, where antique meets modern, it’s impossible you won’t be back again and again.

How to get here? Head to the 6th floor of the boutique hotel 9 Hotel Cesari to be greeted by not one but two stunning roof gardens with beautiful plants and flower boxes in pastel shades, illuminated by scented candles and lamps. The first terrace overlooks the striking Piazza di Pietra, while the upper terrace offers jaw-dropping views of the Saint Ignatius of Loyola Church.  There’s also a glazed pergola bathed in sunlight even in wintertime.  Unwind in one of the wrought iron armchairs or sofas with soft white cushions, chairs, large parasols and elegant decorations and sit back, relax and order a drink. Signature cocktails are made by the legendary Valerio, while an Italian wine selection specifically made for the hotel awaits all wine enthusiasts.
