Venetian Hotel Las Vegas is one of the top attractions on the strip, and it features an amazing Venice, Italy themed design. When visiting the hotel you can imagine for a few seconds that you are actually in Italy… But this is not the point – You are definitely in the city of ALL possibilities :)
Venetian Hotel Las Vegas, a unique experience you can only have in… Las Vegas! :)
Located at the heart of the famous Strip, the whole complex has Venice, Italy written all over it.
* I uploaded many of these photos to my Fine Art America gallery, so if you click on them you will see my art prints in various versions.
The hotel has recreated a historical landmark of Italy: St. Mark’s Square, with the Doge’s Palace, by the side of the water * I made this image as a watercolor in digital media for a more vibrant look and feel:
Here is a detail of this incredibly beautiful replica: of the Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), in Las Vegas
The Venetian Tower is also a beautiful replica of the St. Mark’s Campanile, found in the Italian City of Venice.
Gondola Rides at the Venetian Las Vegas
A visit to the Venetian Hotel Las Vegas would be incomplete without a gondola ride.
There are two-person and four-person gondolas. My husband and I opted for the four-seat ride, which costed us $29.00 per person. That was an outside tour – If you want an indoors tour as well, you pay double. We were paired up with another couple who were very friendly. Therefore, we bonded easily. BTW: a private gondola for two people costs $116.00 per person. On holidays the prices are different, but you better check on their website: venetian.com
Almost like Venice in Italy, this Nevada replica is one of the most romantic places to be. You may go to there get married, or just for celebrating your anniversary… You may just want to have a memorable moment with your beloved one. Either way, if you take a gondola ride I assure you that you will always remember it…
The gondoliers (of all nationalities), sing well known Italian songs that enhance the romantic mood of the ride. I also heard that all gondolas are authentic, imported directly from Italy. This picture below is another watercolor I made in digital media, from one of my photos. It is also available as art print in my gallery
A nice feature of the place are the stairs by the water where you can seat, relax and watch the activities on the water or on the strip. I also made this picture below as a painting in digital media:
Well…, Venetian is definitely my favorite place in Las Vegas :)
