Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour

away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s
palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty
of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for
last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as
such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has
several great sporting clubs known for tennis and

Seventh floor of the renovated Grand Hotel Ritz in Rome, majestic view of Piazza Euclide, historic square in the heart of Parioli and near Villa Glori. The restaurant Gaetano Costa Le Roof is a perfect combination of elegance and flavour: soft tones In furnishing with lacquered wood paneling walls ranging in contrast with the black of the 60 seats and the bar. Magnificent outdoor terrace, ideal for dining enjoying the sunset. The Chef Gaetano Costa offers original gourmet creations, revisiting it in an innovative Italian culinary tradition. Open daily for lunch and dinner is an ideal location to enjoy cocktails and drinks in the original Bar entirely covered in white mosaic
