Venetian Ceiling Mural | Las Vegas NV

The Venetian has an astounding gimmick: all of Venice squeezed into an jumbo city block. The accuracy and detail of these recreations are uncanny, albeit only skin deep. Well, except for one thing: unlike Venice, everything is new, squeaky clean and there is no dog poop on sidewalks. Venice's landmarks, artworks, canals, cafes, shops and other icons are collapsed into a colossal architectural Grand Canyon. You can spend hours strolling along the shop lined canal, ride a gondola, sip a cappuccino or "git down" at a swingin' hot spot. Of course it's expensive so bring your luck to the tables before hitting Louis Vuitton and Tao.
