Home of the famed Cirque du Soleil show O, the Bellagio Hotel
has this and much more to offer the Las Vegas guest. Opened in
1998, this luxury hotel is patterned after a Roman extravaganza,
but offers everything for the modern traveler.

Sited on the shores of a 10-acre man-made lake, the hotel houses
20 restaurants and cafes, a 65,000 square foot spa and salon and
a dozen other attractions.

The famed Bellagio Fountains are just outside. A thousand
choreographed sprays blossom into the air in a water ballet that
has to be seen and heard to be appreciated. The jets are timed
to classical music and Las Vegas visitors will often stand in
front of them day or night for an hour and watch the show.

The lobby alone is worth a visit. The ceiling displays 2,000
hand-blown glass flowers each hand-crafted to perfection. The
Fiori di Como are multi-colored works of art that form only one
astounding part of this city within a city.

Just off to the side are other fascinating things to see, such
as the Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Within its walls are
exotic plants from all over the world. Those who have enjoyed
the botanical gardens of London or New York won't be

The Fine Arts gallery is an option, even for those not staying
at the hotel. With dozens of works by Picasso, Monet, van Gogh
and other masters, it's small but impressive. Easily the equal
of many European art museums, art lovers will find many works to
view and enjoy. An audio tour is available.

Unlike some of the hotels, the Bellagio is restricted to those
over 18 unless they are guests of the hotel. One reason is the
centrality of the large casino within the property. Visitors
will pass through it on their way to almost any of the other
attractions. Under these orange canopies you can find just about
anything in the way of gambling, from $1 slot machines all the
way up to $5,000 per hand poker tables.

Not inexpensive by Las Vegas standards, the Bellagio rooms can
easily cost $250 a night, though discounts are a possibility
during off-days or weeks. But you'll definitely get your money's
worth. Whether it's the luxurious Italian provincial-decorated
rooms, or the high-end spa, you'll find elegance and pampering
are routine here. The spa architecture has an unusual feature to
enhance the visitor's experience: walls made of water. The music
and general ambiance will melt your stress away.

Even with over 3,400 rooms they offer a high staff-to-guest
ratio and your every whim will be catered to quickly. Come visit
the Bellagio and find out for yourself.
