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.

The country estates of wealthy Romans were carved up after Unification and transformed into elegant boulevards. One of them is Via Veneto that starts at the entrance to Villa Borghese (one of the most elegant parks in Europe) and ends at piazza Barberini. The street lined with plane trees and cafes, was once the symbol of Roman fashion and style... More

We walked here from our hotel and were not disappointed. The street was made famous in the 1960 film La Dolce Vita. Today it is a wide tree shaded street with high end shops restaurants and street cafes. We started at the top, near the park and walked to Piazza Barberini. There are many high end and regular stores, mostly... More

So our apartment was a stone's thro from Piazza Barberini in Via Venato. Nice road with trees lined up. Restaurants, cafeterias. If the road is expensive, the piazza Barberini has a good range. Hard Rock Cafe and American embassy adorn the road and road ends at Viila Borghese - heavily wooded park and Villa Borghese - heavily marbled art gallery.... More

A broad and pretty street framed by trees, large hotels, and the US embassy building, Federico Fellini's classic 1960 film La Dolce Vita was centered around the Via Veneto area, and that's what made it famous. The area was at its peak in the 1950's and 1960's, when celebrities, many of whom were filing at Cinecitta, hung out there. Today,... More

Leaving Villa Borghese and passing through impressive Porta Pinciana we began our leisurely stroll along this famous Via. In numerous outside cafes and eateries there are black and white photographs of the many famous people who frequented, entertained and were entertained here. They are very redolent of the heyday of fame in the ‘50s and ‘60s. We browsed in a... More

A nice and clean street with many high end shops but nothing really to make me want to come back again. We walked up and down the street from the Metro station and visited the Capuchin's Museum/Crypt but that's really about all. May be different if you want to go shopping.

Out hotel was located in this area. It's a great area to stroll along and just take in it's beauty and ambience. Tree lined, clean, with a friendly feel, it was a great start and finish to our days in Rome.

I don't know what you expect to find while walking by this road, but do not expect that much. The glorious days of Via Veneto belong to the past and nowadays it is just another noisy road. However, you can stroll around and see the places where once the rich and famous would have their meal or drink.

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.
