Designed to look like Venice, the Venetian is one of the most beautiful and elegant casinos on the Strip. Some features include replicas of the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square.
Located inside are the Grand Canal Shoppes, complete with a canal running through the shopping area. Couples can ride, and be serenaded, in a real Italian gondola. There are daily performances from Artisti del Arte', who are classically trained singers, and "Living Statues" who entertain visitors. The "The Gondolier March" is not to be missed. Taking a stroll past the Grand Canal Shoppes is like taking a stroll in Venice. The hotel rooms are twice the size of an average suite. They are luxurious and are very popular with the newlyweds. The Venetian is also the place many couples choose to get married as it is surrounded with beauty, and features many photo opportunities.
Be sure to visit Madame Tussaudís while at the Venetian; the wax figures displayed are both fascinating and realistic. Watch the famous comedian Wayne Brady make your stomach sore with laughter, or experience the critically acclaimed Phantom, Jersey Boys or the Blue Man Group.
