At the end of the Strip, this site invites us to come to "Venice". And indeed, we were amazed by the reproductions of the canals and gondolas, complete with authentic-looking gondoliers. Inside the casinos, it's hard to tell what time it is, with gamblers staying all hours to play roulette or blackjack. Up on the second floor there is a version of one of Venice's famous plazas. We chose to dine there at one of the restaurants, and it was very good. Walking through the complex, we couldn't miss out on the Italian-style ice cream, so we stopped to indulge in this luxurious treat! As we wandered back to our hotel at dawn, the party was still going strong.
From the top of the replica of the Eiffel Tower in the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, you can see the most amazing views at night of the big hotels and Las Vegas Boulevard. Also, you can see a dazzling replica of the Arc de Triomphe and, if you are lucky you can see a show of dancing water in the artificial lake of the Bellagio Hotel. I think that the best time to climb it is at sunset when you can see how the neon lights gain brightness as the sun goes down and then stay until night falls and the lights can be seen in all their glory. To access the top of the tower, you need to take an elevator from the bottom floor of the hotel.
Different states in the USA have different laws, which you can see when you cross the border. Sometimes the speed limit changes on the same road as you move from one state to another. Most notably, when you cross from California to Nevada, is the fact that Nevada allows gambling, so of course Las Vegas is the Mecca of casinos!
From Paris to New York in 5 minutes, walking under palm trees ... anything is possible in Las Vegas! Sin City has paid a tribute to the French capital, as well as Venice and New York. Other casinos take their themes from ancient history (Egypt, Rome) and legends (Treasure Island, Aladdin, the Mirage). You can see the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty very close together!
