13 of Europe’s Best Rooftop Bars

Pre-pandemic, when travellers had the chance to close the day gazing over Europe’s most famous skylines, they turned to Europe’s best rooftop bars. Today, using customer review data, Expedia has found the best options for your next trip, when we’re able to enjoy the sunsets again. These favourites offer great cocktails, breath-taking views and friendly service. Across Spain, Greece, Portugal, Italy and the UK, there is a wonderful blend of modern mixology with old-world charm in some of the most desirable destinations on the continent.
