Fortunes have been won and lost inside this palatial casino since the 16th century. Slots open at 11am; to take on gaming tables, arrive after 3.30pm (or 4pm mid-June to August) wearing your jacket and poker face. Ask your hotel concierge for free-admission coupons, and take the casino's free water-taxi ride from Piazzale Roma – bargains, unless you count your losses. You must be at least 18 to enter the casino.

Richard Wagner survived the 20-year effort of composing his stormy Ring cycle only to expire here in 1883. His suite – filled with musical scores and Wagner memorabilia – can be visited by pre-booked tours (arwv@libero.it; [h] 10.30am Tue & Sat, 2.30pm Thu).
