If you want to get away from the Forum area the Via Veneto is worth a trip, it has more of a Parisian feel to it as the wide tree linked avenue snakes up the hill. There are still some high end hotels in the area & Harrys Bar is well worth it for a night out if you have... More

We stayed at a hotel in Piazza Barberini and explored Via Veneto one afternoon. A fairly interesting street with pavement cafes. We walked all the way down to an ancient gate called Porta Pinciana which was built in the early 5th century. Via Veneto enjoyed its heyday during the 1950s and 1960s. Nowadays the film stars apparently prefer the luxurious... More

A symbol of the long gone La Dolce Vita, now the street is lined by exclusive hotels and some bars, and the US Embassy. There are better streets for strolling in Campo Marzio.

The street was the center of nightlife in Rome during the economic boom of the 60s. Now it is a tourist spot with many hotels.

Nice street to take walk on, away from the bustle of Rome. Big boulevard style road, not your typical Roman street. Lots of hotels, restaurants, trees lining the street. Quiet & relaxing. The park at Villa Borghese was especially nice.

A stroll along the Via Veneto is as Roman as a walk along 5th Avenue in New York or in the Ginza in Tokyo, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. You will be following in the footsteps of Anita Ekberg, many other celebrities. Some of the cafes are mysteriously closed yet plenty of other places make this street a fantastic place... More

Nice part of the city. More upscale hotels. The US embassy is there. The Hard Rock Cafe is also there if you want a good burger.

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?

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.

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighbourhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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 20:00.
