Whether you’ve heard of the grand rumors of the Bellagio, attended one of the circus shows, played at one of the slots in the casino, or simply just swooned over George Clooney in the movie “Ocean’s Eleven,” then you’re familiar with the Bellagio Hotel & Casino.

The Bellagio is an MGM hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, known for its replication of villages across Europe and astonishing fountain show. This luxury hotel on the Las Vegas strip features so much entertainment and amenities that you will never have to go onto the strip itself!

Every aspect of the hotel is mesmerizing.

From being captured by the bright, colorful lights of the casino to admiring the unique details on the creme and white-colored walls that line the lobby, you are sure to be entertained by the hotel itself. The Bellagio takes its thematic references to Europe very seriously, boasting a glamorous pool area that teleports you to Italian wine country. In addition, the swooping trees and adorned gates and entryways make this hotel perfect for any couple’s getaway. The fantastic pools, shows, and casino amenities, however, make it an ideal hotel for any age or person to visit.

Arrive with an empty stomach.

The hotel boasts not 10, not 15, but 22 restaurants, quick service, and fancy dining options. If you are looking for California fare with Wolfgang Puck’s special twist, head on over to Spago, and if you are looking for a uniquely Vegas experience, check out the Mayfair Supper club. On the other hand, if you want a casual quick bite, you must visit the Bellagio Patisserie, which holds its very own Guinness World Record for the world’s largest chocolate fountain, still running to this day! Most of these restaurants have incredible views of the signature Bellagio fountains show that comes on every hour, accompanied by a curated playlist.

The casino floor isn’t the only entertainment.

If you could possibly get tired of watching the fountains’ waters dance along to the music, or the table games, poker, sports games, and slots offered by the casino, then you have other options. For example, the Bellagio is home to one of Cirque du Soleil’s most famous shows, “O.” This eye-capturing spectacle is done almost entirely in a pool of water. The performers jump, swing, dive, and flip above, across, and into this pool.

In addition to seeing the marvels of the divers in “O,” be sure to visit the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art or the awe-inspiring Botanical Gardens. These gardens are no ordinary flowers and leaves, as one may think. The gardens actually double as a Conservatory that hand-picked Horticulture and Engineering teams transform into a 14,000-square-foot show. The colors, lights, and even animals change from season to season, and the team even puts on a display for the Lunar New year.

Literally, everything else is available to you.

The Bellagio’s amenities list continues endlessly. There is genuinely nothing you cannot do at Vegas’ luxury capital. From the top-reviewed spa to the decorations in Concierge, there are so many nooks and crannies to explore in the wondrous Italian-esque halls and rooms. So, if you are in Las Vegas, take a break from the gambling and show-watching to at least peek into a luxurious European city in the middle of Nevada.
