Where to go for sunrise/sunset

So I asked this for Venice so now I'll be in Rome this weekend and wonder where I might go to catch a really nice sunset/sunrise.

The higher up, the better! Most rooftop terraces and bars are a good choice.

The terrace above piazza del Popolo affords a nice sunset view as does the terrace from the Orange Grove (Giardino degli Aranci) on the Aventine Hill. The sunset view is nice at the restaurant Ciampini at Trinita dei Monti if you have a seat on the "view side" of the restaurant. If you have extra cash to spend, try the view from the Hassler Hotel's rooftop restaurant. Here's a listing of some other rooftop views:


For sunrise I would choose the Gianicolo Hill, probably the terrace at the top of the scala Giovanni Iacobucci but if I felt energetic I might get an early start and climb higher to enjoy the view along the Passegiata del Gianicolo.

Have fun in Rome and enjoy the sun!!

EternalCity1 already said the two places specifically hat immediately come to mind: the Gianicolo Hill and/or from the terrae of Villa Borghese Park where it overlooks Piazza Del Popolo. From the top of the Spanish Steps offers a really pretty view as well, though is probably more crowded (provided you are outside and not inside, that is, such as inside the restaurant mentioned above).

Rome is a city full of hills...find the top of one and enjoy the view! :)
