Via Veneto is an institution, representative of Fellini’s Italy - La Dolce Vita and everything else that modern Italy is famous for.
This street grew around a few small yet exclusive hotels and boutiques in the last century and soon shot to fame as being one of the stretches of road to be on if you considered yourself to be ‘anyone who’s anyone’.
Today, tail-coated waiters serve aperitivos to guests behind air-conditioned glass partitions, and some of the city’s most exclusive restaurants line this verdant street which curves gracefully from Piazza Barberini up to Villa Borghese.
Villa Borghese is Rome’s main park and is a sight to behold that rivals the stunning architecture and history abundant in the city. The park contains the famous Borghese Gallery, an inch-for-inch copy of the Globe Theatre in London, the city zoo, a boating lake and facilities for horse-riding, cycling and many other activities.
