Take a Gondola Ride
At the Venetian Resort, you can take a romantic gondola ride down the Grand Canal with your partner.

The indoor ride is open on most days from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., and you can visit until midnight on Friday and Saturday. The outdoor ride is open every day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Explore the Bellagio
The Bellagio is an elegant resort inspired by Lake Como in Italy. It has a variety of romantic attractions, and it’s a great place for you and your spouse to explore. Outside, you can see the Fountains of Bellagio. This beautiful light and water show happens every half hour on weekdays from 3 to 7 p.m.

After you see the fountain, go inside and check out the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Garden. It covers 14,000 square feet, and it has several gazebos, bridges, and ponds as well. The display changes with every season, and a 120-person horticultural staff maintains it. It contains tens of thousands of trees, flowers, and plants, and its beautiful, domed glass ceiling has sculpted metal beams with unique floral patterns.
