My second day of Las Vegas sightseeing began with a walk to The Venetian. I'd been recommended to visit this one by my grandparents as it's their favourite of the casinos. It's really lovely, with faux lakes and gondolas both inside and out.

Having never actually visited Italy (I know, I know; it's on the list) I'm not sure how true to life it is, but it certainly didn't feel as though I was in the middle of Nevada when I was inside. I went back in an evening later in the week and loved the fact that the lights are turned down to replicate the outside light.
Walking through the Palazzo shopping arcade at The Venetian, everything just seems so decadent. Of course, as with everything else on The Strip, it's all huge. Even the ongoing building work is really nicely presented.
Of course everything was decorated to the nines for Christmas. It was so hard to remember that it was only a couple of weeks before Christmas as the weather and the fact I was in the desert just didn't make me (the biggest Scrooge ever) feel Christmassy at all.
I think it was probably my favourite of all the casinos I visited.
