Top 10 Things To Do in Vegas

Take a break from the slots and venture out to see all that this amazing city has to offer. Hiding behind the neon lights are performances, attractions, rides, and shows that’ll make your Vegas vacation unique and special. Step inside The Venetian and immerse yourself in Italian culture without leaving the city. Marvel at operatic performers, ride a gondola for a classic Italian experience, or enjoy the modern side of Las Vegas with fashion runway shows, live music, and digital dance performances.

Gondola Rides

Your Venetian experience isn’t complete without a traditional gondola ride as the gondolier serenades you with classic Italian songs. Take in beautiful Italian-inspired architecture with an indoor ride, or glide along the outdoor lagoon to get a unique view of the Strip. Gondola rides are perfect for romantic dates with your sweetie; however, each gondola seats four, so this makes for a fun, memorable ride for the whole family, too. Be sure to catch the free Gondolier March each day in the morning and afternoon, as they parade singing through the Shoppes to and from the North Canal Turnaround to start their day!
