If you have some time, the Via Veneto is a lovely walk lined with hotels, residences, trees, and ... the US Embassy....

What's the most famous street in Rome? Where are the most expensive shops in Rome? Have you ever seen or heard of the film La Dolce Vita ("the sweet life")? In which street is the Us Embassy located? Where are you most likely to bump into famous film stars and celebrities in bars and restaurants like Café de Paris, Harry's... More

A nice neighborhood with beautiful hotels, good restaurants, and several good stores. It is lovely to walk down the street at night but even during the day it doesn't get too crowdy.

This is my second stay at a "grand hotel" on the Via Veneto. I must say that the owners of the hotels and buildings along the Via Veneto have made this street irrelevant. Yes it may have been great in the 1960s but now the hotels are old, the building facades dirty, some of the cafes closed and almost minimal... More

Via Veneto, perhaps Rome`s most glamorous neighbourhood, the site of "docle vita" and high-lfe of the roaring 60-ies. When selecting bars and cafeterias in this slopping area it is a must zipping a classic cocktail in one of the famous sidewalks of the bustling Via Veneto, to see and to be seen .... An ideal place for an afternoon walk,... More

Once upon a time the heart of the Dolce Vita, with actors and moviemakers from Cinecitta and Hollywood roaming this street and its overpriced bars. Now the street is in obvious decay. the very expensive cafes and restaurants are closing down, some resist, as the five star hotels. Yet it is not anymore the heart of the movida. Still there...

Possibly the most elegant (large) street in Rome, used by Fellini to shoot La Dolce Vita. I recommend getting off at the Barberini metro stop and walking up the street from there.

Our hotel was along the Via Veneto across from the US Embassy. It was a peaceful walk down the hill to the tourist attractions but far enough away that we were away from the throngs of people.

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.
