If your main vacation priority is to feel pampered in a luxurious and elegant setting and gamble in a splendid casino, then the Las Vegas Bellagio is the choice for you. The Bellagio, which is named after the Lake Como resort of Bellagio in Italy, is one of the few hotels on the strip that have been awarded an AAA five-diamond rating.
Separated from the strip, by a man-made lake, the Las Vegas Bellagio hotel is famous for its magnificent Bellagio fountains, that are performed in time to music and reach heights of up to 460 feet. Performances are made at half-hour intervals throughout the day and 15-minute intervals after 8pm.
The Bellagio fountains form lasting memories in the minds of visitors, and so provide the ideal location for a romantic marriage proposal. The hotel also organises weddings on the hotel balcony overlooking the fountains, that are timed so that the couple kiss at the time that the fountains reach their peak height.
