Via Vittorio Veneto, commonly known as Via Veneto, in the heart of the historic center of Rome is a street which leads from Piazza Barberini to Porta Pinciana.
It was designed around 1889, and was the centre of the society life during the 1950s and 1960s because of its many exclusive cafés and hotels.
Federico Fellini's classic movie "La Dolce Vita", shot in 1960, contributed to make Via Veneto one of the most famous streets of Rome.
Today, like in the 1960s, the hotels in Via Veneto are still the preferred choice of Italian and foreign celebrities alike.
The US Embassy housed in Palazzo Margherita and the church of Santa Maria della Concezione (Our Lady of the Conception) are in Via Veneto.
