    Via Veneto
    4 more images

    Via Veneto is a lovely avenue, more reminiscent of a Parisian avenue than a Roman street that stretches from Piazza Barberini and winds upwards towards Villa Borghese. In its heydays, it was the symbol of Roman fashion and style and Fellini's La Dolce Vita was filmed here. The avenue is filled with luxury hotels, cafes, embassies and offices. Famous cafes include Hard Rock Cafe, Harry's Bar, Cafe de Paris and Art Deco Doney's.

    The Excelsior on Via Veneto (Jan 2005)
    2 more images

    The meandering Via Veneto is one of Rome's most elegant avenues. It starts at Piazza Barberini and curves uphill towards Porta Pinciana at Villa Borghese. It is lined with many luxury boutiques, cafes and belle epoque hotels, such as the Excelsior (see photo). In the '50s and '60s, Via Veneto was the most glamorous spot in Rome where the rich and famous would gather. The avenue was made more famous by Fellini's film La Dolce Vita.

    Via Veneto by night

    Via Veneto was entitled to the town of Vittorio Veneto and it was opened in 1889 looking for high class hotels. Fellini's movies changed it in the "Dolce vita" symbol all over the world.
