Vittorio Veneto Street is an elegant, secular, respectable street of modern Rome. I recommend for leisurely walks at any time of the day and at any time of the year. It is on it that the famous Hard Rock Cafe is located, it is here where you can feel the bohemian life that some inhabitants of the city lead.

Via Vittorio Veneto stretches from Piazza Barberini to Porta Pinciana and Villa Borghese. Crowds of enthusiastic tourists do not besiege her. There are no world famous, bright masterpieces of architecture. The street was built in 1880. in Rome and interesting to fans of shopping, lovers of fashionable establishments.
In the old houses of Via Vittorio Veneto, expensive hotels with antique decor, exclusive shops and fine restaurants are open. In the Palazzo Margherita (Palazzo Margherita) is the American Embassy.

The main attraction of Via Veneto is the Capuchin Church (Santa Maria della Concezione), decorated with paintings by Guido Reni, Pietro Cortona, Caravaggio, Domenichino.
The street was first named Via Veneto, in honor of Venice. It was renamed after the landmark event of World War I - the battle of the commune of Vittorio Veneto. It was a military triumph of the Italian army, a complete victory over the army of Austria-Hungary.
The great Fellini glorified this street in Sweet Life. Several episodes of the cult movie were filmed here. After the release of the film, Via Veneto became a recognized center of social life, an example of glamorous chic, the center of La Dolce Vita throughout Italy.
