Want to experience the charm and spirit of Italy a little closer to home? Look no further than the Venetian. This Italian-inspired hotel offers spacious, classically appointed accommodations throughout the resort, with rooms in the Venezia Tower featuring Italian marble and Roman tubs, among numerous upscale touches.
Without a doubt, the first stop on your Italian-themed vacation has to be the canal. Hop in a classic Venetian gondola and cruise on a waterway that winds through the outdoor lagoon or the Grand Canal Shoppes, an Italian street-themed shopping experience with exclusive stores, priceless art, and cobblestone walkways.
The homage to Italy continues outside, where 10 stunning pools are spread over 1.2 lush acres. From kid-friendly pools to private cabanas, and the see-and-be-seen atmosphere of TAO Beach, there’s something for every type of sunbather.
Restaurants at the Venetian are plenty, including multiple options from celebrity chefs like Emeril Lagasse, Wolfgang Puck, Thomas Keller, Lorena Garcia, and Mario Batali. Indulging your sweet tooth? Sample cakes from Buddy Valastro at Carlo’s Bakery, you know him as the Cake Boss.
In the evening, make sure to check out Tao nightclub, a frequent favorite of the celebrity set. Looking for something with a slower pace? Check out the ultra-chic lounge, The Dorsey, or settle in at the Bellini Bar for—you guessed it—specially crafted bellinis in the middle of the casino floor. You can also let loose in a more casual environment at the Rockhouse, a dive bar with tire swings, billiards, beer pong, and a mechanical bull.
As if there weren’t already plenty of reasons to love the Venetian, you can even feel environmentally responsible about your stay. The resort’s many eco-friendly initiatives include LED lighting, solar panels, a reclaimed water system, eco-safe cleaning products, and more.
