Situated on the top of a Spanish art museum and hidden from passers-by on the street The Azotea is towering high with uninterrupted 360 degree views of Madrid. It’s the perfect spot to chill in the daytime heat or enjoy a beautiful sunset. It also serves light snacks throughout the day and has a more formal restaurant if you are looking for something more substantial.

Above the busting busy streets of Florence, looking over the beautiful Ponte Vecchio bridge and Arno River you will find yourself at La Terrazza located in the upmarket Hotel Continentale. With an extensive cocktail and wine list you’ll be spoilt for choice. Be sure to arrive early to ensure that you can get a table – it gets extremely busy and its quite small. One of the best rooftop bars in the city so it’s worth waiting for.
