Gondola Rides Review

Let a gondolier "o sole mio" you down Vegas's rendition of Venice's Canalozzo. We love this attraction because it's done so well—owner Sheldon Adelson was obsessed with getting the canals just right: he had them drained and repainted three times before he was satisfied with the hue, and the colossal reproduction of St. Mark's Square at the end of the canal is authentic right down to the colors of the façades. The gondoliers who ply the waterway are professional entertainers and train for two weeks to maneuver the canals. It all makes for a rather entertaining way to while away an hour on the Strip. Outdoor gondola rides along the resort's exterior waterway are also available, weather permitting. A gondola carries up to four passengers.

    Do the inside gondola ride

    The one outside the hotel is a rip off, the one inside the hotel is gorgeous! SO romantic, and you see the beauty of this resort from a unique vantage point. Also, the gondoliers serenade you and they have beautiful voices--absolutely a not miss attraction in this city.
