Bellagio Las Vegas Walk Through

Share with a friend

Recently I did a walkthrough of the Bellagio Las Vegas to see which restaurants and bars are open and which remain closed.

Bellagio Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is known for the Fountains of Bellagio show, the spectacular Fiori di Como glass flowers, Cirque du Soleil, and the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.

The luxury resort is built on the site of the former Arabian nights themed Dunes Hotel & Casino. The Dunes, like the Tropicana Las Vegas was run by the mob. Tropicana was run by the Kansas City mob while the Chicago mob also known as the Chicago Outfit led by Al Capone ran the Dunes.

When it opened, Bellagio Las Vegas Hotel & Casino was the most expensive hotel built in the world. Today, the $15 billion dollar Abraj Al-Bait, Mecca in Saudia Arabia currently holds that title.

The hotel is named after and designed to invoke images of Bellagio, Italy, the Pearl of Lake Como, one of the most beautiful places in Lombardy.

Fiori di Como, the glass blown flowers on the lobby ceiling is made of 2,000 flowers, weighs 40,000 pounds, and cost $10 million. Glass artist Dave Chihuly designed the $10 million piece.

In this video, we’re touring the Bellagio Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip.

Normally I like to fly Southwest, Spirit, or Frontier to Vegas because flights are so inexpensive.

But I drove because this visit to Bellagio Las Vegas was part of a 20-day road trip to Las Vegas and Utah that included visits to several national and state parks like Zion National Park and Arches National Park.

If you’re planning a trip to Vegas, here’s what to pack for Las Vegas.
