One of the grand resorts in Las Vegas, Bellagio’s design is influenced by the picturesque town of Bellagio on Lake Como in Italy. Known for it’s elegance and opulence, the “theming” of Bellagio feels more accurate and authentic than the other more kitschy themed casinos on the strip ( i.e. Luxor, Excaliber, New York New York, Circus Circus and even Caesars Palace). It looks real compared to the other “decorated sheds” on the strip.

From the Fountains of Bellagio out front, to Chihuly’s glass flower art installation in the lobby ceiling, the Conservatory (Currently with the Chinese New Year installation), and the Cirque du Soliel’s “O” show and theater, Bellagio is really spectacular. It feels expensive and exclusive (and it is). Everytime I go to Las Vegas I am drawn to the lake out front to watch the Fountains of Bellagio, day or night the show is fantastic- and it is free.
