Vegas – The entertainment capital of the world
Las Vegas: the adult playground.
J ust landed you get the first impression of having a hair dryer constantly focused on you! In fact, this feeling of warmth was not bad at all after the cold in SF! My advice is to experience the city at night and rest during the day because the real Las Vegas wakes up at night and because the heat slackens off!
Let’s face it .. all the hotels are similar. Casino, shops, bars and restaurants offer the same wide range of lights, music, service, entertainment . In my opinion the most beautiful, well deserving a visit , are the Caesar Palace, which this year celebrates its 50th anniversary and the Venetian (probably because I am Italian? :-))
The show performed in the theaters of the hotels, directly inspired by the Cirque du Soleil can’t be easily forgotten. We saw “Le Reve-the dream” at the Wynn (very elegant hotel, less flashy than the others mentioned above). Nothing short of spectacular! Talented artists performed aquatic acrobatics on a stage which could be turned into a pool when necessary. Not to be missed.
Another experience that I highly recommend if you are a couple is a wedding ceremony in a chapel in Las Vegas! If possible with Elvis! We chose the Graceland Chapel. Totally fun and amusing ! A limousine picked us from the hotel (we stayed at the Signature at MGM, very clean with spacious rooms and not too expensive) and took us to the chapel. We were welcomed by an exhilarating Elvis that joined us in marriage with Love me tender as the soundtrack of the event .
The evening ended with a dinner at the Bellagio’s Picasso restaurant on the terrace overlooking the water of the fountains. Perhaps the most spectacular views of Las Vegas! It was certainly not a cheap dinner but the right end of a fabulous day! Las Vegas is a city that brings happiness, where you can always hear music as you stroll through the streets, where everything is a game, lights and excesses. I now understand why the song Viva Las Vegas! is so popular.
Once again we used Uber to move around. You can’t use Uber pool in Las Vegas, but only the X version: you are not allowed to share the car with other users, so it costs a bit more. It is difficult, however, to set the address to be picked up, so I advise you to enter the address of the hotel because it is easier to find.
