Our list of the best rooftop bars in Europe would of course not be complete without: Venice – “la Serenessima” – i.e. the serene or even laid-back lagoon city, awakens travel longings like no other. A little morbid, the ravages of time gnawing at every nook and cranny of the palaces and old buildings, but always charming when you conquer the city on foot over the little bridges or by water taxi along the canals.
And some things here seem even more beautiful from the outside than if you were right in the middle of it: The Hilton Molino Stucky Venice is located on the island of Guidecca, which runs parallel to Venice’s main island. Things are a bit quieter and more contemplative here, gondolas are still being built in old shipyards and you will definitely meet genuine Venetians in the bar around the corner.
The hotel is housed in a former flour mill, which is considered Venice’s most important industrial monument. On the roof of the historic building, however, there is not only a wonderful pool, but also the Skyline Bar, from which you can enjoy the panorama of the historical buildings of the main island. The Skyline Bar is the highest bar in Venice. Here you can enjoy delicious and creative cocktails prepared by expert mixologists while enjoying live music.
