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.

So, to get here, all you do is hop off the Barberini exit on the metro and you are pretty much right there. This street and this neighborhood are sooooo pretty. As compared to the majority of Rome, it is cleaner, has less graffiti, less traffic and just all around a nicer place to walk.

Love this street and in general I love the Barberini area. On the street you can find the Cappuchin church which is a great place to visit! There are some lovely restaurants in this part of town and it it central to most tourist sites too.

A lot of tour books are down on this area saying its days are over, they are wrong. Plenty of outside cafes and wonderful hotels and the area is clean and safe. Recommend going to Villa Borghese and then stopping at the cabiria across from harry's and strolling down via Veneto to piazza barbarini station!

Why not spend at least 1 hour here on the Via Veneto ? Frankly, it's another road to Rome, to enjoy it is advisable to follow it the night simply for the fact that the atmosphere is magical and vibrant. If you are looking for some good restaurants at a good price this is the place, also many stores among... More
