The trafic in Via Veneto is definitely confusing the real charme of the street. Of course via Veneto is famous for its shops and hotels, but is the symbol of "La Dolce Vita", and at that time the traffic was certainly less chaotic.

If you can set some money aside for a dessert and wine, or a meal on the Via Veneto you will make a memory. Great history on this street named after the Battle of Veneto a key victory for Italy WWI. When Italy became united the street was built and Hollywood eventually flocked to enjoy a cafe or a glass... More

Sometimes an attraction is linked to something else which always conjures up special memories. Federico Fellini and his 'Dolce Vita' branded the Via Veneto into the subconscious of an entire generation. Today it's mostly high end shops, restaurants and hotels. Worth walking down it a bit. ...

The first time I strolled the Via Veneto was back in 1996, when my mother and I stayed at a hotel just off that street, made famous by Federico Fellini, the great Italian film director., in "La Dolce Vitta." I am fairly certain the days of Via Veneto's decadence are long gone, but the street, on which I stroll every... More

If your from the Chicago Area you completely understand. Great shops, cafes and much more. Centrally located in Rome, the Via Veneto is a wonderful walk and close to a lot of Rome's attractions. Just steps away from the Spanish Steps and the Borghese Gardens

We first became acquainted with this upscale street in 1970 and have returned several times since. Nice to see how the rich folks live.

A street that was the top of the top in the '50s (the movie La Dolce Vita), now a very beautiful street, S-shaped up the hill to Villa Borghese. Had deserved a better fate. Overpriced cafeterias, bars and hotels and no real life left, despite its beauty.

Not sure what you would go to this street for other than the Hard Rock Cafe. You can take the metro and get off at the Barberini station. Make sure to come out the right exit. You will be at the Piazza Barberini and the beginning of via Vittorio Veneto. Great sounding name, I guess if you lived there. We... More

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighborhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.
