Bellagio is one of the luxury hotel and casino giants that so characterize Las Vegas. This opulent luxury resort enjoys a prime location on the Las Vegas Strip and is inspired by the Lake Como town of Bellagio in Italy. It has a massive 8 acre or 3.2 ha lake between the Strip and the building. Here crowds gather to watch the iconic and large dancing water fountain synchronized to music.

The casino is based on the stunning Bellagio in northern Italy near the Swiss border nestled on Lake Como. It gazes across the lake into the Alps. It is arguably one of the most stunning towns in Italy and everyone should visit if visiting Italy. See here for a guide on where to go in Italy for the first time.
