Fall travelers to Italy, take heed. There’s a new rooftop bar in Rome that affords sky-high views over the Eternal City. The Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto debuted the Sky Bar & Grill in August, and it’ll be serving up cocktails and barbecue (grilled meat and seafood) until October. The hotel itself—comprised of two adjoining 19th century buildings—occupies a city-central piece of real estate on Via Veneto; the Royal Suite has magnificent views from its terrace, as does the rooftop garden, overlooking the Roman Walls of Porta Pinciana and Villa Borghese gardens. The Sky Bar is open daily from 7:30 to 10:30 pm, depending on the weather.
The setting for Fellini's movie La Dolce Vita, the historic property opened in 2009 after an extensive seven-year restoration project. Its 116 rooms-- half of which are suites-- are done up in Art Deco splendor. Facilities include a Michelin-starred restaurant and the top-notch Aqva City Spa specializing in Bvlgari treatments.
