First Impressions & Photos from The Venetian Las Vegas

Las Vegas, Nevada - Venetian thumbnail. Venetian is another European copy…scaled down a little obviously. Yes, it has the gondolas, with Italian singers and all…I’m still not sure if the songs are taped (they look and sound very real), but it is copied nevertheless. It’s ok though, ’cause you only drive a few hundred miles from Los Angeles and you get to see Venice…or something pretty close to it.

The Venetian & Palazzo Resort is right on the Las Vegas Strip and it is one of the major attractions on the entire Las Vegas Boulevard. It's hard to miss when you walk up and down the street. The Venetian has an impressive entrance with long escalators that simply try to suck you in from the street outside. Here are my first impressions from visiting the Venetian in Vegas.

This resort is home to the famous Madam Tussauds Wax Museum. The amazing wax creations include famous actors and politicians portrayed in familiar environments.

If you are planning a trip to this area you can find budget hotels in Las Vegas here.

What to see at the Venetian

Like many things in Vegas, The Venetian is a copy of a famous European attraction. The interior of the resort is a miniature copy of Venice, Italy complete with gondolas and singing gondoliers. Just remember that it is a polished copy, with no trash and no dirt.

The main attraction at the Venetian is the water canals with Italian gondolas. In addition, there are many beautiful high-end shops.

However, other than walking around the water canals and St Mark's Square replica, there are no family friendly attractions at the Venetian.
