Gaining a different perspective’s easy when you’re standing on top of a roof terrace.

Gardens are great, but rooftop terraces can be just as beautiful – they often have the added bonus of spectacular views, too! We’ve made a list of the rooftops that we think deserve some attention. Here are 11 of our personal favourites from around the world. Enjoy!

We’re big fans of seamless indoor/outdoor living, especially when it looks this good. Sunset jacuzzi dip anyone? Don’t mind if we do.

The ultimate BBQ setup. Washing-up isn’t so bad when you’re doing it on a rooftop in Milan.

Ok, so this might not be the swankiest rooftop on the list, but it sure is charming. Azulejos tiles, azure blue walls and a book nook? Just lovely.

Another great example of unified indoor/outdoor spaces. This glass-walled kitchen definitely makes the most of its rooftop position. We approve!

How dreamy is this plant-filled terracotta rooftop? Very. Just the right amount of wild and cultivated rolled into one.

Jacuzzi & Friends might not have stunning views, but we love how private it feels.

We definitely wouldn’t say no to a morning coffee on one of those seriously comfy looking cushions.

The quintessential New York rooftop terrace. Tick!

Is it a jungle or a rooftop terrace? We’re not entirely sure with this one, but we like it.

Seashells, antique furniture and an abundance of potted plants: Terrarium is wonderfully enticing, if a little eclectic.

What a sun trap! The dining table is great, but we adore the romantic bar stool set-up on the edge of the terrace, looking out to sea.
