Via Veneto is in many ways the center of Rome. This fabulous street was immortalized in Fellini’s famous La Dolce Vita (the sweet life). When you’re done shopping, people watching, eating, drinking, and simply enjoying La Dolce Vita on the Via Veneto there are several tourist sights worth visiting in this upscale neighborhood. Don’t miss the Seventeenth Century Palazzo Barberini now home to the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica (National Gallery of Ancient Art) and the Neoclassical Palazzo Margherita, which hosts the American Embassy. You should also visit some nearby historic fountains and churches. For your convenience we have listed neighborhood hotels in approximate order of cost, starting with the least expensive. We have personally verified all website addresses making sure that they include English-language pages.
