The Via Veneto is an upscale wide shopping street in the center of Rome. It presents a pleasant break from the narrow streets and alleys the border it and many other areas of Rome.

The premier address in Rome is the Via Veneto. It starts at the Piazza Barberini and runs to the top to the Villa Borghese. This street acted as a principal setting for Frederico Fellini’s 1960 film “La Dolce Vita.” This lovely tree-lined street has The American Embassy, Capuchin Church of the Immaculate Conception, many luxurious hotels, outdoor cafes, and restaurants.

This used to be "the" street to see and to be seen. Although the film stars have apparently abandoned it, it still retains an air of elegance with its smart hotels, cafes and bars. There are several imposing buildings lining the street and I found it to be a fascinating walk. The huge US Embassy also shares this address.

There is so much to do in Rome and so many streets that are worth visiting but Via Veneto is an ideal spot to be located at.. Many restaurants and cafes that are relatively nice and a very spacious and pleasant sidewalk... It is centrally located and everything around is at walking distance...

This is a great place to stroll and shop. Bring lots of money! There are some excellent places to eat, but try the small places down the side streets. Make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes!!!

One of the most elegant and famous streets in Rome, Via Veneto was one of the centerpieces of the movie La Dolce Vita where movie stars move around the cafes and restaurants of the area.

I have visited Rome numerous times and I always make it a point to stroll on Via Veneto and stop for cappucino and cornetto if it is in the morning or a drink in the evening. Beautiful shops and great for people watching

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.
