Bellagio was built at a cost of $1.6 billion and opened in 1998. Inspired by the beautiful village fronting Lake Como, its luxurious interior is complemented by a fountain show outside.
The lobby's ceiling is full of glass flowers by artist Dale Chihuly.
Across the fountain and Las Vegas Blvd is Paris and its Eiffel Tower.
Flamingo lives up to the pink theme outside and also in its courtyard with real flamingos. The original buildings were destroyed as part of the 1996 renovation.
Across the street, Caesars Palace is adorned with marble statues and Roman extravagance.
However, there is one oddity in ancient Rome, a Buddhist shrine.
So you are in Paris, Rome, and Bangkok all across the street from each other.
A grand shopping mall, the Forum Shops, boasts more Roman decor with modern goods.
