At the upper end of Via Veneto you will find Villa Borghese an excellent park to just relax. The street is safe both day and night. Don't be on edge of the armed guards you see on the street, the US Embassy is located on Via Veneto. You will also find the Hard Rock Café almost across from the embassy... More

Wide street that winds through the heart of Rome with sidewalk cafes, stores and lots of people watching. Very busy at night.

We, being raised and enamored with Fellini's movies, couldn't visit Rome and skip Via Veneto, made world famous not so much by a rather brief period of the street's fame across the globe but precisely because of the lasting heritage of Fellini's great movie La Dolce Vita. And though the most famous episodes of the movie take place elsewhere (think... More

This street is full of restaurants and invites you to have your dinner there. The location is fantastic, just some steps away from Barberini Square.

This is one of the prettiest streets in Rome. A great mixture of local cafes and some tourist shops. A very safe place to wander. If you cant find something to do here you are just not enjoying yourself. Stop at a café. Order some wine. Relax lean back and take in the surroundings. I feel at home here. Looking... More

Probably one of Rome's prettiest street, with luxury hotels and restaurants, and a few embassies in the area. But this is not a place for shopping.

If the tour hadn't have briefly brought us here, I wouldn't have come, not being a high-end shopper. But, if high-priced fashion shopping is your thing, have at it.

Its better to walk on Via Veneto at night. It's a nice walk (but all up hill one way and thus, down the other). Kids will get bored as its pretty much stores, fancy hotels and eatery. Although, smack in the middle is the Hard Rock Cafe - that should make the kids happy.

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.
