Fans of eye-popping luxury, along with movie buffs who liked Ocean's Eleven, won't want to miss Steve Wynn's original opulent Vegas pleasure palazzo. Inspired by the beauty of a lakeside Italian village, and built on the site of the legendary Dunes, the $1.6 billion Bellagio is a classic fixture on the Strip. Famous for its ornate Tuscan architecture and eight-acre artificial lake, it's the elegant antithesis of what most people expect of Las Vegas. A thousand dancing fountains spring from the green-blue water every 15 to 30 minutes throughout the afternoon and evening, while in a nearby courtyard, the distinctive pool area is surrounded by private cabanas and accented by carved Italian columns and artfully formed citrus and parterre gardens. Although the nouveau riche stink can be heady, the secret delight of Bellagio is that Mediterranean-style romance is always in the air.
