Warm damp and dazzling light twenty-four hours a day. Despite this, Las Vegas is the most entertaining city in America. It is over the top, kitsch and opulent. In Las Vegas you can find the most picturesque human type: Middle-aged ladies playing slot machines in curlers and dressing gowns in the hotel lobby, cowboys with thick gold necklaces shouting “ya-hoooo!” If they win at roulette, elderly gentlemen dancing alone and happy along Fremont Street. So in Las Vegas you return children, you feel of living in a great game where everything can be recreated for fun. And its opulent and kitsch does not exclude anyone, indeed. It is not luxury for Someone , but luxury for everyone, democratic luxury and, above all, well packaged. A perfect city for children and teenagers, also because until the age of majority can not even be approached by gaming tables and slot machines. And this surveillance is effective and constant. Franci and Ele, who wanted to play with colored and flashing slots, could never get close to the play area: vigilantes do their job well. And the beauty of America is not only the rules, but the respect of them. A quiet and comfortable city but with a lot of things to do and see. A safe city, even for a woman who travels alone with her two boys.
Hotels and Casinò
The hotels in Las Vegas are amazing, golden, immense and bright. Bere You will find the largest hotels in the world. Some reproduce our cities, such as Venice or Rome or even Luxor with lots of pyramids and sphinxes in natural size. Las Vegas is one of the chipiest cities in America for hotels and restaurants. Everything is at the service of fun and, let’s face it, of gambling! In every hotel it is possible to have a casinò always open. We were at the Venetian, immense and beautiful www.venetian.com. An accurate and faithful reproduction of Venice with gondolas, which we have tried, gondoliers singing ‘O sole mio’ in a fake starry sky. Are Also reproduced Piazza San Marco, the Palazzo Ducale and the Bridge of Sighs. At the Venetian there are 5 swimming pools, I don’t know how many restaurants and about seven thousand suites. Wandering around to see Las Vegas hotels and shopping in the shops induces a different form of curiosity. See the Luxor hotel, the New York hotel, the Bellagio and the very famous Caesar Palace. For about $ 20 you can eat at the gigantic hotel buffets, all you with eat. The boys pay half.
You can’t go to Las Vegas without going to Fremont street. There I saw the most dazzling lights and the most absurd people. The cap that covers the road has an extension equal to five football pitches and lights up with beautiful colors that change every three minutes. An exciting show. Under the canopy, there are some madmen who rush with ropes at exaggerated speed! But it is the people, the street artists and the common people, the most beautiful and fun attractions of this street.
I did not even approached me and I solemnly swore to my children that they would never enter. If you like a bit of extreme fun, there are attractions and a playground built two hundred and fifty meters above the ground!
You know, Las Vegas has always been one of the places where most of the major US artists have performed. You need to book a little early because otherwise you risk sold out. We have seen the tribute of Cirque du Soleil to Michael Jackson and our Family’s “review” has rarely been so concordant.
