These two are probably the most well-known casino’s in Las Vegas. And trust me when I say there’s a reason why. These are incredibly iconic and have mind-blowing architecture that we’re been fed through various movies and TV shows. At the Bellagio, we went to the art gallery, where they had an exhibition called “Fabergé Revealed”. Along with the magnificent pieces (including some amazing eggs), they had the history of the Czars, as the company was the official jewellers of the Russian family. On the website they provide the following information
The name Fabergé is synonymous with refined craftsmanship, jeweled luxury, and the last days of the doomed Russian imperial family. Fabergé Revealed will offer a rare opportunity to view a dazzling array of more than 200 elegant objects by the celebrated jeweler to Russian Czars Alexander III and his son and successor, Nicholas II, including four Imperial Easter Eggs. Visitors will be treated to a stunning array of enameled picture frames, gold cigarette cases, hardstone animals, decorative boxes, and jewel encrusted brooches. This exhibition has been organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
Sadly, we could not take any pictures of the exquisite pieces, but they have some pictures on the website. We ended up having the most amazing burger of this life (no kidding) at Olives, which is a restaurant right across some of the higher price-point stores. It was the perfect combination of fancy and ambient in terms of atmosphere. I am still dreaming of their massive, garlic roasted not so French Fries… We also had to watch the fountain show, and it was magnificent! Watch some clips of it here.
Now Caesar’s Palace is a palace with nothing like it. There’s the hotel and casino, but when you walk up the strip, it continues. And seems to never end. The Forum Shops provides an impressive selection of shops with everything from Cartier to H&M. If you’re very interested in their store directory, click here. The whole place is an out-of-sight-out-of-mind experience, and I don’t know what else to say than urge everyone to take a trip to experience the craziness. This is also where I realized that there is so much to grasp that my 50mm lens on my Nikon simply couldn’t fit enough of it in each frame.
