Casinò Di Venezia information
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.
