NileGuide Expert Says:
The Hard Rock Café, located on Via Veneto, often serves as a respite from pasta and piazza for tourists and residents alike.
- 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 e 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.
