The next casino/hotel I want to show you had an Italian theme.
The gondola rides start out inside, even though they look like they are outside. The picture I took above is outside. I'm on a balcony. The pictures below are inside.
This is part of a mural on the ceiling at the Venitian
And this is St. Mark's square.
See the statue at the left of the picture. It isn't a statue. She is real.
St. Mark's square is huge, and again, inside. They paint their ceilings to look like they are outside.
They had singing and a skit in St. Mark's square and I had never seen it before. We just happened to get there in time to get a seat before it started.
They even had audience participation! They gave everyone red, white, and green napkins to wave in the air.
Having been to Italy a couple of years ago, the Venitian was one of my favorite hotels. I'd love to stay there but it's a tad pricy for my budget.
