"The Bellagio" Bellagio Hotel - Casino Tip by Erin74

Bellagio Hotel - Casino, Las Vegas: 62 reviews and 130 photos

  The Bellagio
by Erin74

...continue down the Strip to The Bellagio. On the way, admire The Flamingo, one of the great old-school Vegas casinos...

The Bellagio is usually considered to be the most luxurious of the casinos in Las Vegas. It has a lot of opulent details that you won't find elsewhere in the city. The sights begin before you even enter the casino. Outside, check out the spectacular dancing fountain (the "Fountains of Bellagio"). Watch as the water literally "dances" to the strains of opera and classical music. This is especially beautiful at night, when colored lights add to the spectacle.

Inside the casino, there are a number of things to see. Start with the lobby. On the ceiling of the lobby you'll find an unusual piece of art: a display of 2,000 hand-blown glass flowers. It's called the Fiori di Como. Chihuly. The artist, Dale Chihuly, has a gallery in the casino if you'd like to puchase some of his other pieces.

Past the lobby you'll find the Botanical Gardens. It's a small but beautiful indoor garden featuring well-tended roses, tropical plants and a small steam under a glass ceiling. This is a great place to take a photo or two.

The Bellagio also has a small musuem ("The Gallery of Fine Art") featuring the works of Rembrandt and Reubens, among others. There are also visiting displays that circulate through this gallery. General admission is $15.

The pool area is lovely at The Bellagio. It has a romantic, Tuscan feeling, complete with stone fountains and potted cyprus.

The gaming floor here is elegant but not particularly distinctive. When you're finished admiring all the sights at The Bellagio, head back out to the Strip to continue on your tour!
