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. There are many touristy restaurants but you can go a couple of blocks and find more local places. It's a great part of... More

As most reviewers have stated, this was the "sweet life" location, the haunt of the rich and famous. Outdoor cafes, high end boutiques and of course the 5 star hotels (Regina, Excelsior, Majestic, Grand...). It is also a beautiful tree lined boulevard with a few sites to see (Chiesa of Santa Maria better known for the skulls and bones of... More

The Via Veneto is lined with outdoor restaurants and a lot of high end shops. It was nice to walk down this street towards some of the other attractions in Rome including the Spanish Steps.

Via Veneto is an iconic Roman street and is well embedded in the cultural memory of people of a certain age and those of a certain disposition.It is well worth walking down the street to get its vibe and take in the buildings and the shops that adorn it.I advice shopping only if your pockets run deep!

I guess the leafy, tree-lined Via Veneto was once positioned as Rome's answer to the Champs Elysee. But as Champs Elysee itself is not quite what it used to be (the trendy high end shops have moved to Fauborg St Honore), similarly Via Veneto itself is a shadow of its former self (the trendy shops have moved to Condotti, Corso...

If you want to feel rich, pampered and beautiful, walk along sloping, twisting Via Veneto, considered the most elegant street in Rome. It was the centre of Rome's "La dolce vita" in the 1950s-60s, as seen in the film. There are some impressive buildings here---all to do with luxury and wealth. I like to stroll past the canopied entrances to... More

OK I'm just going to say it....I love higher end clothing and shoes and am especially partial to specific names. In the Via Veneto I am absolutely in my element. This area is famous for the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, and world class shopping. Just about everything and everyone known to Vogue is here -- and it's all for the... More

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.
