Forget walking tours that give you sore feet and sunburns, the best way to see some of Europe’s iconic sites is by sipping champagne on a rooftop terrace. Here are some European rooftop bars with views of famous monuments like the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Parthenon in Athens, so you can see the old continent in style.
1. Skyline Rooftop Bar, Hilton Molino Stucky, Venice
Having an Aperol Spritz anywhere in Venice is delightful, but doing it from the rooftop terrace of the Molino Stucky Hilton is truly amazing. The Skyline Rooftop Bar of the Hilton Molino Stucky is a short boat ride from the main island of Venice and, from there, you can sip your cocktail while watching the sunset over St Mark’s Square and the picturesque jumble of domes and spires that define Venice’s skyline.
