The North-West view from the terrace:

 

Old Rome historical centre seen from the Turtles Nest apartment terrace of Palazzo Costaguti: North-West View.

You can see many Rome's sights and domes. From left to right:
The domes of four churches: San Carlo ai Catinari, Sant'Andrea della Valle, Sant'Agnese (St. Agnes) of Piazza Navona, Santa Maria dell'Anima; Monte Mario Hill with its astronomical observatory (at its feet you find the Olympic Stadium), the High Court of Justice (the big palace with the quadriga on top, dubbed by Romans "Palazzaccio" or ugly palace because it is imposing and without the typical Italian charm), the spiral dome of the Church of Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza by Francesco Borromini, the turrets of the Germanicum College and of Palazzo Montecitorio (seat of the Italian Parliament), the dome of the Pantheon, the dome of the Church San Carlo al Corso (the trees in its background are part of the Borghese Gardens), the back of the facade of the Church Sant'Ignatius of Loyola, the imposing dome of the Chiesa del Gesù (Jesus Church, main church of the Jesuite order), behind it the Quirinale Palace, then Palazzo Venezia (where from Mussolini made his speeches).
Finally you can see the high palace Palazzo Mattei, and the Capitoline Hill with the Victor Emanuel Monument ("Vittoriale" or Altar of the Fatherland, Altare della Patria), the Church of Ara Coeli ("Altar of the Sky"), and the centre of Capitoline Hill, where you find Rome's Municipality (it is the building with a high tower-belfry), the Capitoline Museum and the Palazzo Conservatori.

The imposing dome of the Chiesa del Gesù (Jesus Church, main church of the Jesuite order), behind it you can see parts of the Quirinale Palace, then some of the towers of Palazzo Venezia (where from Mussolini made his speeches). This part of the view ends witt the high palace Palazzo Mattei (built in front of the famous Turtle Fountain).
There follows the Capitoline Hill, including the Victor Emanuel Monument ("Vittoriale" dedicated to King Victor Emanuel II, the first king who reunited Italy in 1861) also called Altare della Patria or Altar of the Fatherland as it hosts the remains of the unknown soldier of WW1, and dubbed "Wedding cake" or "Typewriter"), the Church of Ara Coeli ("Altar of the Sky"), and the centre of Capitoline Hill, the centre of Rome since its foundation (April 21, 753 BC) where you find Rome's Municipality (it is the building with a high tower-belfry) where there stood in ancient times the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus. Near to it you find and you can see the Capitoline Museum and the Palazzo Conservatori. The high pine trees that follow are part of Palatine Hill (giving the origin to the word "palace").
You can see then the Church of Santa Maria in Campitelli (large, and in the forefront), the dome and roof of the Abbey of St. Ambrose, the Roman Castles or Alban Hills where from the Latin and Roman civilization originated, the Marcellus Theatre (on top of which some buildings were built in the Middle Age), the main Jewish Synagogue (officially "Il Tempio" or The Temple for the Roman Jews), with its surrounding trees, which flank the Tiber River.
