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

A classic stroll passing venerable hotels, the U.S. Embassy, and even a Hard Rock Cafe. There are lots of pricy restaurants in chic glass-enclosed structures up and down the hill, along with great and affordable bakeries, gelato and coffee shops. Breakfast at Boscolo Palace is especially worth the trip. Also, do check out the great dining spots on the side... More

Via Veneto is a pleasant walk with some nice hotels to look at (and the Hard Rock Cafe of course) but much of the charm is gone so many hotels and shops live in the past and are over-priced. One to "tick off" on the "Bucket-List" but don't expect a Wow! Factor these days. That said, if you are walking... More

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!!!

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.
