The 30-story luxury resort, Bellagio--inspired by the Lake Como resort in Italy.  The Bellagio now sits where the once famous Dunes Hotel was located.  The Fountains of Bellagio have become world-famous and are choreographed to light and music--ranging from Classical to Frank Sinatra to Elvis Presley.

Make Reservations at the Bellagio



The Fountains of Bellagio are part of an 8-acre lake; shows run every 15-minutes from 8 P.M. to Midnight.  Before a show, the fountain nozzles break the surface and the building turns a purple-hue.

The Fountains, Hotel and Casino

The original concept for Bellagio was named "Beau Rivage"--a resort located on an island in a large man-made lake.  The Bellagio, like many of the hotels on the Strip, was built by Steve Wynn.  At the time the Bellagio opened (October 15, 1998 just before 11:00 P.M.), it was the most expensive hotel ever built at $1.6 billion.

Viewing the fountains from behind can provide a new visual experience--particularly at twilgiht.

Here, the Bellagio sits majestically behind its man-made lake. The Bellagio is a five-diamond hotel.

The Fiori di Corno hangs over the Bellagio lobby.


Covering 2,000 square feet of the lobby's ceiling, Dale Chihuly's Fiori di Corno is comprised of more than 2,000 hand-blown glass flowers.

This area is between the lobby and the Conservatory. 


An 18-foot tall crystal obelisk, the only one of its kind in the world, mraking the entrance of the Conservatory.

Halloween at the Bellagio


The Bellagio Conservatory and Botanic Garden displays are changed five-times a year to reflect the change of the seasons as well as the Chinese New Year.  This scene is for the Fall; in the foreground is a 751 lb pumpkin!

Bellagio at Spring

One Last Look


Trees begin to sprout leaves during the early Spring. 


A close-up of the village along the lakefront:  Osteria del Circo is one of the more casual restaurants featuring Tuscan cuisine. 


The section of Las Vegas Blvd in front of the Bellagio is probably the most loveliest on the Strip--loaded with large shade trees.  For more photos and video of the fountains, click here.
