Via Filippo Turati 171, Rome
A stroll on the spacious seventh-floor rooftop terrace, alongside the pool, reveals Rome both ancient and modern, with views over a section of the aqueduct arches, and the tracks of Termini station. With Zest, the Radisson Blu es. Hotel is considered by many as having one of the best bars in Rome. Here, guests may feel they have been transported from the Eternal City to the blazing heart of Miami, owing to the minimalist polished black surfaces and the exclusive rooftop, poolside location. The menu at Zest is ideal for a relaxed breakfast, light lunch, aperitifs or an informal dinner, with mainly Italian classics on the menu, from the delightful simplicity of mozzarella cheeses, courgettes and cherry tomatoes, right through to home-made ice-creams. The Zest bar is one of the city's favourites for cool aperitifs.
