Located on the famous Las Vegas Strip right next to Caesars Palace, the Bellagio Las Vegas is a luxury hotel and casino reminiscent of the Italian town of Bellagio by Lake Como. Renowned for its beauty and elegance, the Bellagio has recreated some of the magic with an 8 acre (3.2 ha) lake and the famous dancing water fountain and musically synchronized light show, known as the Fountains of Bellagio.
Visible from a number of vantage points on the Strip, the Fountains of Bellagio is an amazing, choreographed water feature performance set to music and a synchronised light show. Operating every half hour in the early evening and every 15 minutes from 8pm to midnight, the lake and fountains are serviced by a freshwater well originally designed to irrigate a golf course. The water feature uses a network of pipes with over 1,200 nozzles and over 4,500 lights at an estimated cost of $40 million.
Stepping inside the Bellagio you'll discover a breathtaking art feature covering the 2,000 sq ft (190 sqm) ceiling of lobby. Known as Fiori di Como, the extraordinary sculpture was created by Dale Chihuly and features more than 2,000 hand-blown glass flowers. The grand display is a Bellagio icon and the hotel and casino also features other work by Chihuly including glass sculptures Clusters Persians centerpiece in the Baccarat Lounge and Blue Spears outlining the Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art also offers a number of different artwork and exhibitions on rotation.
The Bellagio's main tower measures 508 ft (151m) and features 3,015 rooms over 36 floors while the southern Spa Tower measures 392 ft (119m) and offers 935 rooms over 33 floors brining the Bellagio's total capacity to almost 4,000 rooms. The award-winning Five Diamond rated casino also offers an unparalleled gambling experience with dramatic and sophisticated style, a variety of slot machines, plenty of table games, race and sports betting and the famous World Poker Tour.
