Via Veneto is one of the most famous and expensive streets in Rome, Italy. The official name is via Vittorio Veneto, after the Battle of Vittorio Veneto. Federico Fellini's classic 1960 film La Dolce Vita was mostly centered around the Via Veneto area.
Initially, like other streets in the neighborhood, was dedicated to the Italian region. After the First World War the name was changed to commemorate the Battle of Vittorio Veneto. The street was designed at the end of the 19th century. This made the street famous in the 1960s–1970s and turned it into a center due to the cafes and shops along the street. Following a period of stagnation in the 1980s, the street has now found a new life. Today, some of Rome's best hotels are located there. The Embassy of the United States is located on the street.
