This is a street that has lived through alternate fortunes. In the early 20th Century it was a fashionable street for strolling, with elegant venues such as Caffé Bussi and Caffè Rosati and smart hotels such as the Majestic, l'Eden, l'Excelsior and l'Ambasciatori Palace. After a relatively quiet period, the 1960s, in particular the film La Dolce Vita, put Via Veneto back into the limelight of society life, with the antics of the stars and the audacious chases by paparazzi led by Tazio Secchiaroli. Today, Via Veneto has returned to peace and quiet, and its famous open-air cafés are frequented by tourists.
